I was out showing houses today with a young buyer and her mom.
We pulled up to a cute townhome in a nice neighborhood. The home is a short sale.
The agent told me to knock first which I always hate because I think that means that they are not being informed that we are coming.
Immediately as you get in there is a huge dark curtain that's blocking you from seeing the living room. I pulled away the curtain to reveal 3 twin bed mattresses on the floor - strange.
Walking through the living room to the dining room requires going through yet another humongous dark curtain. In there were also 3 twin bed mattresses on the floor.
We made it upstairs. One of the 2 bedrooms was locked so we weren't able to see it but the second bedroom had 2 twin beds and a cot.
In all, I counted 9 beds that were obviously occupied in a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom townhome. I can only imagine how many people were living in the locked bedroom.
Based on the personal effects, there were no children and it was all men. Seems like 9-12 men living in one small place has to be a violation of some zoning rules.
I've been doing this for awhile but I never ceased to be amazed at the conditions some people live in. Makes me grateful for me own reality.
