A thorough clean and maybe a lick of paint are the first jobs for almost everyone moving into a new home.
But this terraced home on offer in the Sheffield suburb of Hillsborough might requite a little more attention.
The filthy home, filled with rubbish and rotting food after being abandoned five years ago is being offered for sale 'as seen' with a guide price of £110,000.
Auction House South Yorkshire listed the "exciting" three-bed home for auction, while conceding that it was in "need of refurbishment".
The auction house has offered no explanation as to why the previous owners couldn’t be bothered to tidy up before they left.
Prospective buyers will have to spend a good couple of days shifting smelly bin bags and other junk before they can think about moving in.
The three-storey house boasts a cellar in the lower ground level, a kitchen and living room in the ground floor, and three bedrooms and family bathroom.
The property comes with a bunk bed and for the already tempting price, the new owners will also find a diverse selection of discarded plush toys and dirty rags included.
The kitchen features a stained cooker, rusty pots and pans, and a bottle of washing up liquid that, surprisingly, appears to have been used at some point in the past.
Wallpaper in the top bedroom has been stripped off, revealing a "rustic" brick look.
The shared bathroom offers a unique experience – as it has been furnished with a leather chair as well as bath. On the upside, a second-hand loo roll is also included.
The listing adds the property is just a stone's throw away from an array of bars, restaurants and shops as well as a tram and bus stop with links into the city centre.

However, social media users reacted with shock after they saw the appalling state the house had been left in.
Craig Beresford, commenting on Facebook, quipped: "Hope furniture's NOT included."
Mitch Wood said they were "better off getting wrecking ball out and knock lot down".
Some people were a little more positive however. Elyse Maria Bingham said she had finally found the home she was looking for.
She commented: "After having some setbacks and a few hurdles to jump over, we've finally bagged our forever home.”
She just may have been joking.
