If there were ever a time to sell a house of horrors, the time is now.
In this wild market, in which record low inventory and soaring demand is pushing home prices ever higher, you might expect that any old thing you put on the market would sell. Mimi Foster, a real estate agent with Falcon Property Company in Colorado Springs, Colorado, decided to put one home to the test.
She listed a five-bedroom home in the Broadmoor Bluffs Estates neighborhood for $590,000. That may sound like a steal, but buyer beware.
While the house appears fine from the outside, and is situated among homes that typically sell for $750,000 to $800,000, what awaits on the other side of the front door is vandalism, destruction, animal remains, years of neglect, and… a pretty intense odor.
“Honestly, you can feel the smell,” Foster said.
But Foster didn’t hold back in her description of the house when she listed it on Tuesday. Describing the home as “every landlord’s nightmare,” Foster wrote: “If you dream of owning your own little slice of hell and turning it into a piece of heaven, then look no further!”
