OK, this one is by popular demand. In another thread I mentioned that at a new REO I always find a barbeque grill left behind.

What do they always leave behind at your properties?

I think every REO I've ever had that still had a stove in it, has had a pot on the stove with some type of food in it. It's always something stinky, too - like tuna.

Pennies. Old shoes/boots. Coat hangers. Lately, a spate of DVDs or CDs with no jewel case/container. Lovely stained mattresses. Mail/bills/newspapers scattered everywhere. Phone books. Pizza boxes. Plastic cups from convenience stores.

- DirecTV or Dish Network dishes/remotes (no receivers).

- Clothing/shoes (always smelly too!)

- Light fixtures with no bulbs (I think some of these folks only own one light bulb and take it with them when they leave!)

I'm going to 2nd KT's list for the fleas and porn and add cigarette butts, empty cans (beer or pop) and my new favorite thing to find - litter boxes (this is a new thing for me, but I've found them at my last 2). \:\)

Empty beer cans! Forgot that one. Thanks OHAgent. One house I was in had beer-pyramids of Coors Light in every room, ceiling high.

I've actually found a few things potentially useful, and tempting. Hair clippers (for my dog), crockpot, mitre box. But it skeeves me to even think about touching most of what I find...food, dishes, clothes, coins, cigarette butts, unopened mail, yep, litter boxes too. Even the skeletal remains of a dog (at least, I think it was a dog...not much left but the hair and poop on the floor).

Worst I've seen in an actively-marketed REO...the toilet bowl with about 10 dead mice in it.

Reminds me of the active REO I found with an unflushed toilet that had been used - heavily with no water to flush it! Stench in the entire house was unbearable
