The one thing about short sales is that the seller really doesn't give a sh!t about the home. (Although in my case, I don't think the prior owner ever had any concept of scrubbing/dusting/wiping.) I've heard about owners throwing fire crackers or cement down toilets and virtually gutting the place before they lose their home. I don't have anything egregious like that, but this owner has pretty much neglected this unit for the past 14 years she owned this.

I am completely pooped from the scrubbing, sweeping, mopping, that I've been doing this past week. And I still have to do the Master Bathroom and Laundry Room. Manual labor is hard and I'm not even doing the heavy stuff! I'm a total wimp.
