Just clean up your house ***Update***

I'm in the process of looking for an apartment.  While going through the ads (craigslist) there is a certain occurance that I have noticed.  Most of the ads that the agenices/posters put are of apartments that are trashed. Piles of clothes everywhere, unmade beds, a pile of dishes in the kitchen sink, towels thrown all over the bathroom.  Why would anyone post pictures like this? It just seems very odd to me.  

***Update*** Still looking for apartments and I found one with MOUSE TRAPS!!! An empty house with visible mouse traps in the corners of the rooms.  WHO in their right mind would respond to that?

I'm running into this while looking for a house to buy. It's driving me insane. Clearly these people aren't very motivated to sell/rent.

Oh! There was one house that had cats in every picture, and pictures of cats on the wall. All I could think was how that house probably smells like a litter box.

Yeah, crazy cat lady syndrome lol.  But honestly I wouldn't mind seeing a cat because I have one boy and Im having the hardest time finding a place that will accept him. I did see one apartment with a cat sitting on a HUGE pile of clothes sitting on top of a dresser next to an unmade bed piled with more clothes.  The mess was the turn off for me :/

Most of these pics are posted by a realty company :/  Another thing that bugs me, OPEN the shades so I can see if there is natural lighting or it really is a dark cave that I will be living in.

Lol, yeah that'd be nice too. I wish they'd show the views the places had too. My apartment stares right into someone else wall.
We have 2 Windows in the whole place.

What I found is cool is that you can go to google maps and get a street view of the neighborhood you will be living in. I guess you could kinda get what you will be viewing from there. 2 windows??  I don't think I could handle that. I like my windows open and apartment bright.
