11 House Deal Breakers To Look Out For

When you’re trying to find a home, you almost certainly have a pair of lists in your head: the must-haves, the nice-to-haves, and also the absolute house deal-breakers.  Unfortunately, most of the places on this list make up that third class, unless, of course, you’re handy or have an huge allowance for repairs.  Check out these strange however humorous house deal breakers that may undoubtedly have you ever trying elsewhere.

1. A tree grows in… the driveway

Perhaps if you’re exceptional at parallel parking you’ll make this work. Otherwise, you’ll most likely have to contact an arborist or specialiser before you’ll park within the garage. Unless you’ve got a bike because the caption suggests — then you’re all set!

2. What is this house trying to say?

When your house resembles an emoji, chances are you’re going to get a lot of people driving by attempting to figure out which emotion your home is trying to give off. Your guess is as good as mine.

3. Cock-eyed toilet

There’s nothing “normal” about this bathroom. Looks like someone installed this in a rush. (I’d hate to see how things would end up if they install a bidet.) If nothing else, this would definitely be an interesting way to start a conversation.

4. Tight squeeze

Even the skinniest homeowner would have trouble squeezing between the post and the wall to climb those stairs. This absolutely seems like poor planning on somebody’s part.

5. Jump the curb

More garage difficulties! Unless your car can hover like something out of The Jetsons or go airborne a la The Dukes of Hazard, you’re going to have a rough time parking it inside. This caption, which translated to English reads: “I assure you, honey, this house is very well-built,” makes you wonder what else about the house is a little weird. I’m guessing this is no one time thing.

6. Who needs privacy?


This state of the art kitchen was obviously designed to accommodate people with very fast metabolisms. Either that, or somebody has taken the popular “open concept” thing a bit too far.

7. When home styles collide

The majority of homeowners want their addition to blend smoothly with the rest of the architecture. Not these people! But the question we keep asking is: Which part was made first, the tudor or the cape?

8. Color explosion

Proving that a paint job can enhance or diminish your home’s appearance, this home could benefit from a complete makeover. Choosing the perfect paint color is not easy, and it sure looks like this homeowner struggled with sticking to a single shade. Still, choosing one and sticking with it is probably the best way to go.

9. More than a few missing links

You can keep the gate closed and locked but without the entire fence, what’s the point? Maybe the homeowner has a great sense of humor and wants to attract visitors drawn to irony.

10. Indoor/outdoor shower

With shower heads easily available, there’s no reason to use the garden hose! If this homeowner is willing to do such a cheap and quick fix, we wonder what other shortcuts are looming within these walls? It is probably best not to find out.

11. Bathroom off the kitchen — literally

Nothing like lounging in a hot tub immediately after dinner, is there? This set-up takes convenience to new levels. Still, placing a wall between this large tub and the dining room table would most likely make everybody feel a lot more at ease, especially when it’s time to host Thanksgiving dinner.
