my house is a S***hole

Well, it looks that way on the outside. I don't take care of the yard or porch because I don't want people to know the inside is nice.
We live in a bad area, and I'm moving soon, but in the meantime I don't want any attention brought to my house.All the other houses look like shit too, but we have easily over $7000 worth of electronics alone in this house.
Anyone else heard of this?

My old flame's house was like that. Shitty neighborhood, the paint was flaked on the outside, the yard looked shabby, but walk inside and it was classy.

Haha, me too. But all the other houses are nice too.. I don't want to be the shitty looking house.

I can understand not wanting to draw attention in a bad neighborhood though.

We actually have kind of the same situation. LOL. We leave an old stand on our front porch to make it look just a little trashy so that we aren't a target. It works well too, because 5 houses on out block were broken into around Christms and we were never touched.

Isn't that the cliche about why poor people's homes are broken into more...they spend all their money on crap they think is important instead of on the really important things like, a nice home.
