See KTAR.com - Arizona couple renting backyard to pay bills


As the video stated, they will accept "Groups of 35 people or more @ $10 per person." How would you like to be their next door neighbor??

Thanks for posting this most interesting article. At first (my first thought) was that this was being done to help the homeless or those in need have a place to stay.

Watching the video I find it rather disturbing and disheartening. First of all, absolutely no thought is being given to the neighbors who would no doubt appreciate some peace and quiet in their own backyards on the weekends. Second, her reference to praying over it (while forgetting that her backyard could actually be used to demonstrate real Christian values) just makes me "not surprised at all." That is putting it as nicely as I can.

If they can't afford it, time to sell. I hope the neighbors get together and sign a petition to boot them out. God just might want it that way and it would be a lesson in thinking of others before your selfish self.

A brand new reason to like HOA's.

Very true, but how many people buy a house thinking someone is going to do something like this? I am presuming it's sitting on a huge lot and if the right person came along, they could sell it - even at a loss.

Honestly, I would think they'd have more pride in themselves and respect for their neighbors. Guess not. Oh, and that report would have been MUCH more interesting if someone had taken the time to knock on a few neighbors doors for "input."

From the looks of it I don't think disturbing the neighbors is going to be an issue.

They probably should be charging more like 20-25 per person because of the liability insurance, clean up and wear and tear. And I suspect they may raise the price after they get it going.

Yeah - I think I kind of know the area where that house is (how about that for some bold faced certainty!)

They are large homes, on large lots and fairly tucked away ..... cars/traffic would be the main issue

However, it's also probably not in LP or being governed by the cities & it's codes ... it's most likely county island and under their laws

I'm not sure I have a problem with it - if they aren't violating any code, ordinance or zoning issues and have the approriate licenses to operate such a facility, more power to them

I wonder how they are handling their insurance though

I did some googling... See Party Mansion AZ :: Birthday Parties

It seems they are well on their way marketing wise.

I see that Dottie is also an RE agent. You know how some agents let you use their moving truck.... Well she can offer a free mid-week birthday party when you buy a home from her.

I do, too. I would think there's all sorts of policy underwriting issues when your home becomes a business of this nature. If they think their house payments are high.....
