Hoarding : A different look at “Bonnie’s” house

February 12th, 2018 ·No Comments

I was reading when my grandson turned on the TV to a Hoarding: Buried Alive show and what caught my attention was the narrator referring to a woman going to jail four times for hoarding. I surmised it was because of fire hazards and such and looked up to watch. Just then the show switched to a house in California previously owned by “Bonnie” and just sold to Tad and Amber – SIGHT UNSEEN. Well, the outside could be seen and it didn’t bode well . . .

At first glance, I thought Tad and Amber were house flippers who had got themselves into trouble. No, they had it all figured out: with architectural plans and permits already in order before closing, they were all ready to buy the house (LAND) at a good price – because, believe me, no real estate agent was going to have an open house for Bonnie’s place. Oh, in Amber’s blog, she writes, “Tad, being a top selling real estate agent.”

Then they got The Learning Channel to make the house a project, which, of course revealed it had to be demolished –  so they could just build their home on the site of the demolition. By the way, the loan they had secured before escrow was for house and construction.

I found this all out from Amber’s blog Our Home, Trash into Treasure.

They are very clever people. And for one of the moves: “Tad being involved in what seems like a trazillion moves decided he didn’t want to ask for help. ;( He asked the Missionaries fort (sic) help with the big items and then asked our 15 year old neighbor to help with the rest.”
