NOTHING surprises me anymore!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Coeur d'Alene AB37665

I don't remember what the source of this photo was, but I think that the odds are good that it really is what it looks like.  A house for sale (notice the lock box on the rail) with the porch roof being supported by.... Crutches!  It gave me a chuckle and I really mean it when I say that nothing surprises me anymore!  Some things amaze me, some leave me scratching my head. If this house was really listed for sale with the crutches in place, the Realtor should have been a little more aggressive in their home staging recommendations!

I hope the homeowner didn't pay the contractor for pressure treated lumber! :-)

The crutches kind of remind me of a few years back.  Here in California we have a code requirement that water heaters be strapped, because of earthquake hazards.  I met a home inspector on a house in escrow.  Imagine our chuckle when we noticed the waterheater was "strapped" with a bungie cord:-)

Nothing surprises me anymore either!

I like the crutches.  It shows that the house needs help!

Very funny! I will say this: it's memorable. This one would lend itself to all kinds of fixer-upper verbiage (some great examples above in fact).
