Buy my house dot com

Anyone who's bought a house lately (which, I suppose, includes yours truly) has browsed real-estate Web sites of one sort or another, usually operated by Realtors® or other brokers and their respective companies. Homes offered For Sale By Owner generally don't have much of a Web presence.

Then there's this: 12608ArrowheadDrive.com, dedicated to the selling, by owner, of a home at, well, yeah, it's obvious.

(If you see this and subsequently buy the house, let me know. No, I don't want a finder's fee or anything like that.)

Hmmm, the house isn't too bad, the idea is great, but are they giving a carpet allowance for that mess in the bedroom?

I'm not gay but whoever did the decorating should be shot.

Shot? Take them out and hang em, with an old rope yet.
They could stand to learn how to use their camera a little better also. and all this was learned with out clicking on th pictures. Too frightening to see a larger shot.

I saw my first example of this "real-estate URL" about two hundred meters from my house. Can't tell how it's decorated, but I know that 1400 square feet won't cut it with my number of offspring units.
