16058 W Jefferson St

The good points: It's in pretty good repair and has shutters throughout. It has a diving pool, not just a play pool and it has lots of landscaping.

The bad points: All of the landscaping has been neglected for probably a year or so and is in desperate need of attention. Some of the plants have died due to lack of water. It's hard to tell what condition the pool is in because the water is very swamp-like. However, swampy water is actually better for the plaster than no water and the chemicals required to fix it are cheap.

The house to the west is a short sale and is under contract. The last list price was $90,000 and it is 400 sqft larger and has a pool. The house to the east is a short sale that is currently listed at $89,000. It is 200 sqft larger but doesn't have a pool. The house catty cornered to it (across the street, one lot west) just sold for $87,500. It was 200 sqft larger but did not have a pool.

On to photos...

Front walkway. Most of the plants looked salvageable, although very overgrown and in need of pruning.

The only shot of the front of the house I took, not sure why.

To the right of the front door, dead palm and overgrown vines.

Master bedroom. Ummm, I'm going to go with the belief that the owner is an avid stargazer and not some sort of creeper checking out the neighbors. Yeaaaah. ;)
