Okay, so a bad pun on an old (showing my age, old) commercial, I know. I was recently contracted by a major lender to photograph their area foreclosures so they might know "what they have." The pics below just show why lenders should be more proactive in their attempts to do short sales and to get their REO's up to par a lot quicker.
Beware! Not for the faint of heart!
Of course, this house also came with the following standard items for a REO that has sat for too long:
Chest High Grass - Check!
Heat Pump Gone - Check!
Furnace Gone - Check!
Copper Pipes Gone - Check!
