Seeing the damage that was done by tenants in the last five years was heart wrenching. The house was essentially pristine when we made an offer, one that was rejected. Now, seeing the water damage to the floor, door, and windows at the back, the house is a mess. Never mind all the damage to the floors, which go beyond simple wear and tear: the deep gouges, and broken stair edges are mind-boggling. Shingles have shrunk and are cupping, brick is literally falling apart and we know that while the house once was our dream, it is no more.
