The Ugliest House on the Block


I have to say I’m partial to this house, since I’m a Florida fan!

We’ve all been there before. You might have gotten a referral from a friend or a random call off your website, and the caller asks “can you help me sell my home?”

Barely suppressing a cry of joy, you say “Absolutely!” and set up an appointment. You just can’t wait to meet your new sellers and you’re already thinking of the commission check you’ll be getting after you sell their property!

And then you pull up to the home. And it’s simply not a pretty sight.

Some might say it’s the “ugliest house on the block”, but as agents we have a duty to our sellers to make sure that we represent them to the best of our ability. Sometimes, this is harder than other times.

Here are some examples of homes that might be referred to as “ugly”:

This Louis Vuitton paint is pretty classy, but the bars on the doors and windows are not.

“Hmmm. I guess we need to add some windows to the house. We’ll put them there, there and there. Oh yeah, I forgot the front door! Well, we can add that onto the front like this. AND we’ll be able to add some more windows!” said the builder who had never made a house before.

As Kermit the Frog says: It’s not easy being green.

Woah! I just got a headache.

And I shall name you the John Deere house!

Rather than painting or renovating your home, you should just do what this homeowner did. There’s also a chance that this is some kind of carnival game master. I’m not sure.

For some reason, I can’t stop thinking about Krispy Kreme donuts…

If I lived across the street from this house, I’d probably be pretty creeped out looking at this every morning.

I understand obsessions, but this might be going a bit too far!

    Well, beauty IS in the eye of the beholder, after all. I have a cartoon somewhere of a dilapidated log cabin, windows broken, chimney leaning, shutters hanging by one hinge, vegetation overgrown… and Abraham Lincoln is standing there looking at it, saying, “It’s perfect. I’ll take it.”

    Perfect homes for a 203(k) Renovation loan!

    Sometimes, you just have to laugh!
