A collector of  'Monochrome Phones with Sepia Tones'   ...and a Duck!

I hope that the phones and other items of interest got into the hands of collectors instead of being trashed.

"Abandoned" is not the correct word here; "vacant" would be more appropriate.  The son inherited the house, cleaned it out, and put it up for sale.  That is not abandonment.



Let's hope the buyer loves phones like we do!

The article said the seller removed everything from the house before listing it for sale.

Anything physically attached to the home is considered real estate, anything not physically attached is considered personal property and must be removed by the seller unless the buyer enters into a sales contract to buy the personal property specifically described in that contract.

Personal property can not be included in the mortgaged loan. For example, curtain rods are real property, included with the house, but the curtains are personal property and must be removed, unless left by the seller at no charge to the buyer.

While this was not an abandoned property, from the real estate listing photos it appears the structure had some water damage and typical old house stuff. Buyer would need to spend a guesstimate of about $100,000 to renovate the interior.
