Craziest Home Sale of the Year?

By July 5, 2016


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.
