You may have seen some harrowing home listings in your day, but for sheer, ballsy “abandon hope, all ye who enter here” bravado, it would be hard to imagine outdoing the agent’s MLS presentation of the single-bedroom condo at 12748 Huntingwick Dr.
How fearsome is this place? Well, let’s just say the featured photo in the listing is the down-the-hole toilet-bowl shot shown at right. Yes, if while trawling through listings, you are attracted by a full-on view of dank toilet water, surrounded on the floor and porcelain by brown bits that bear more than a passing resemblance to dead cockroaches, this might be the place for you. If, that is, the agent’s sage discouragement, dispensed in contract-friendly all-caps, doesn’t drive you away:
“TERMITES, CRACKED SLAB AND SIGNS OF MOLD IN EXPOSED SHEETROCK,” the listing description begins. And it’s all downhill from there: “NO FLOORING, NO APPLIANCES-MISSING EVERYTHING STRIPED OUT. STAIRS UNFINISHED.”
In case you are not getting the message, there’s this helpful hint: “>>>>> BUYER BEWARE OF CONDITION <<<<<” There’s more, including this baffling but gasp-inducing pronouncement: “BUYER BEWARE OF BANKS OZONE WAITING PERIOD WHEN PLACING AN CASH OFFER ONLY. NO LENDER WILL FINANCE IN THIS HORRIBLE CONDITION.”
This 1,002-sq.-ft. wonder can be yours for the rotting-threshold-low price of $107,321.
