Curb Your Enthusiasm: Properties With Zero Exterior Appeal

New, 6 comments

Curb appeal is critical to making a good first impression on a buyer. These properties are all failures in this regard. To be fair, there's only so much a seller or agent can do, sometimes. Some houses, like the Sag Harbor monstrosity after the jump, are just irredeemably ugly. No amount of flattering angles and sunshine is going to make these sow's ears into silk purses.

Then there's the house pictured above. Seriously? We're expected to pay $860,000 for that? Couldn't the blue plastic tarp have been taken off the woodpile, at the very least? Or some of the dead weeds have been removed from the front? Guess not. Good luck with that.

This Sag Harbor house asking $3,200,000 just leaves us speechless with horror. In case you thought the front facade was any better, see below.

Nuke this place from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

House…or suburban medical office building? Your call. Please pay $4,300,000 for this East Hampton property.

This isn't strictly speaking a photo of the property, but it is the lead picture in the listing, for an "ocean view" Montauk Shores trailer condo, asking $1,075,000. Wow, that's an enticing looking beach you got there. Kids! Make sure you're wearing steel-toed boots before you go into the water!
