I am currently living next door to a real estate horror.
It's a foreclosure and while the previous residents didn't trash the place before they left, they didn't make any kind of improvements to the property while they lived there except for building an illegal two car garage. So, when there was an open house in early June, prospective buyers were treated to dated fixtures, cracked walls, loose gutters, a missing downspout, and a roof so badly damaged there's a tarp tacked to a section of it. Although, I'm sure the buyers had a clue of what they were in for when the listed price was about $100,000 less than the going rate for the neighborhood. Two weeks later, we had a huge storm in the area that ripped off the loose gutters, most of the eaves, and a small portion of the roof. About a week after that, raccoons moved in (if they weren't living there before). About a week after *that*, the realtor's sign vanished from the lawn as did anything even remotely related to the bank that owns it.
My neighbors and I are almost hoping the village condemns it so that it will finally get demolished.
