While searching for a new home I ran across this home that was once featured on the TV show, Extreme Makeover – Home Edition.
On the show they choose a deserving family and build them a new, normally expensive, home. Sounds great…but many of these homes have gone into foreclosure after the owners borrowed against the homes to pay taxes, increased insurance and additional debts associated with a larger and more expensive home. Also, the homes can be difficult to sale because they are built on the owners previous lot, which in most cases is located in an area of less expensive homes.
The home below is in foreclosure, located in the Orlando area, 4300 sq feet and listed for $335,000. All photos from real estate listing on Trulia.

Love the cabinets
So far pretty good. Needs paint, new light fixtures and appliances.
Now here is where it gets really strange!
I can’t say I have ever seen a home with a cave built in it before! LOL
Actually, our grandchildren would love this room! Any ideas on how to decorate a cave??
I think this gigantic fish would scare some small children.
This room was decorated for a young girl that wanted to be a DJ.
The owner had a yard sale prior to foreclosure and as you can see in the picture she even sold the bathroom sinks!
The sales price is great and I see potential in this home (with lots of work). Unfortunately, other homes in the neighborhood are not comparable in size or price and the area is somewhat rural for us. Strike this one off the list. To see this episode of Extreme Makeover go to You Tube here.
Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you at the Open House party tomorrow evening.
