Craziest Home Sale of the Year?

Is the sale detailed in this Seattle Times the craziest of the year? Seattle home too dangerous to enter sells for $427,000 after ‘insane’ bidding war:

With crumbling floors and ceilings that could collapse at any moment, about five feet of standing water and toxic air not safe to breathe, a West Seattle house was listed recently with the condition that only licensed contractors who sign a legal waiver could enter it.

Photos of the interior show it resembles more of a Halloween haunted house than a dream home.

Nonetheless, it got 41 offers — and sold in May for more than double the asking price after just 10 days on the market.
