We have moved so many times that we have soooooo many stories!
Aside from the all over pink house, in that same house hunting trip, we saw a house that had weapons in every room. Hand guns, rifles, you name it. Our realtor was in shock that they had a lockbox on a house and left weapons strewn around. The house itself also had a weird utility easement taking up almost the entire front yard so it was a no go no matter what.
Another “memorable” house was what we now refer to as the “ferret house.” You could smell the animals from the front yard before even going inside- they had ferrets, dogs, and cats that had the run of the house. It was the dirtiest house I’ve ever set foot in.
We also saw a 1/2 done house where the owners had run out of money. No flooring, no front stoop or steps (we had to hoist our relator up to the front door), 1/2 a kitchen, etc… Unfortunately they were asking top dollar as if it was done. You could also hear the high school marching band rehearsing from inside the house because they cheaped out on the windows.
In our current house hunt we had “the mold house” which reeked of mildew and damp (turns out they had a leak in the roof that they ignored for a decade and water had migrated down all the walls), “the money pit house” which had giant holes in the basement floor and a broken down and flooded conservatory, “the barn” which was a super cool house but was only accessible from a weird alley, “the foreclosure” which was also a super cool giant Victorian which would have been appealing had it not been adjacent to a fire station and a daycare, and “the falling down house” which had a structurally un-sound three story addition and every single room was a different color paint with matching counters, tile, trim, etc…
My favorite house hunt was the only time we moved from a high cost of living area to a very low one. We had a weekend to find a house and saw 14 homes. Every single one was way better than what we were leaving. That move was a joy!
