I've had quite a few abandoned homes with freezers full of rotten food because the electricity was off. But the most memorable was a guy that moved out of a 4bed/3bath home and left it immaculate, except for a half pound of marijuana in the fridge.

Winter agents, defined as those who endured through 2006 -20010, know better than to open those doors. That is why we carry that roll of duct tape.

As a landlord, they look at that appliance, see $2,000, take a deep breath then place the hand on the grip......

I think what's more odd is that an '01 Cadillac is still working as the get away car.

We have only had a sellers wife wrapped in the dining room carpet, rolled into the garage, stacked firewood on top of her.  Yep, wouldn't want her to move I guess.
