Just like dating site photos really. Not that realistic …

I’m currently looking for a place to live.  Now, provided the house/apartment is clean, and the neighbours aren’t drug dealing crack hoes, I’d be satisfied.   So the adventure began, looking for a suitable place.

The photo on the left, is what the real estate agent showed on their website.  On the right, what it actually looks like:
Footscray
(only $195 a week for this beauty.  The view out of the front window is an un-kept garden.  If you could see past the weeds, you’d see the support wall for a freeway overpass.)

You can take it as a given, that if the real estate agent doesn’t have a photo of the backyard, it’ll be a rubbish dump:
IndweStreet 
($260 for this 3 bedroom house.  It actually wasn’t bad.  The backyard was a waste dump)

So the search continues …
