Anyone else buy an abandoned house contents ?
« on: January 27, 2011, 09:00:36 PM »
A year ago I bought the entire contents of a 3 bedroom house....the contents were still IN the house!

These people had even left the dog in the yard, but neighbors fortunately had rescued it.  There is a lot to this story including the fact that one day at the flea market a fellow came up to look at the 3 saddles I had taken from the garage. I thought he was acting a bit odd.  A few days later he showed up at the house as I was emptying it. He didn't cause trouble and I sold back to him a few higher end objects.

I kept the 5' big screen but sold all the associated audio equipment, Wii game etc along with about 200 snow globes, even a half cord of firewood !

I took out 5 computers and kept one of those for myself. All worked. Got the passwords from the old owner when I sold him some of his own goods.

Anyone else have a similar experience ?

Here's a link to the only other abandoned home sale I've been to. The crowd was smaller at the link below, but the house didn't have much to offer.
