How did I miss this since it is, regrettably, in my home town.
Truly the stuff that nightmares are made of. I especially like the little house for trolls or gremlins in the backyard.

Fortunately, it appears baby has escaped.

shoot - I was going to make a witty comment about that movie with the devil spawn child and now "poof" his name is GONE from my memory - but you know the one... well, that's his room -- it's the only explanation that keeps me from wanting to cry.

Oh god it broke out of the CRIB! WHERE IS ROSEMARY"S BABY?!?!?!

LOL @ this:

"Complete fixer!!! Everything needs replacing. Do not enter. Property is sold "As Is". Trash and garbage have not been removed. Public records do not state Sq Ft of lot nor building. Age is an estimate. Bulldoze and start from scratch."

aw c'mon..

"Who Wants A Clean House?" I can hear Nicey Nash now.

Looking at the photos of the rest of the rest of the property, the bed bugs would be the least of your problems.

I've heard postpartum depression can be a real bitch.

How in the name of all that is Holy can something like that cost nearly $300,000??? I live in a really nice part of my city (in TN) and $300,000 would buy a beautiful, brand new custom home...with at least an acre or more. What do people do for a living out there?????

Cheryl said...

"Bulldoze and start from scratch." That sums it up succinctly, doesn't it?

Gene said...

"Sleep tight". I think you'd have to be a bit 'tight' to sleep in that house.

$300,000 for a lot that's two blocks from the Pacific Ocean doesn't seem totally outrageous...clearly I've been seeing California real estate prices for too long.

Kat Vapid said...

Well, I was gonna offer $386,900, but if they're asking less....

Charlene said...

Lynne, even worse: if that were in my old hometown it would be $200,000 underpriced even as an empty lot.

Elizabeth said...

Why include interior photos if the only good thing you can do for this place is raze it and start over? Is it supposed to serve as a kind of, "See? You REALLY don't want this house. Really. We mean it. Honest to God. Don't even THINK about trying to live in this gate to Hell"? I think even on the West Coast, $300,000 would be better spent elsewhere...

What is this???

At first I thought it was a litter box made from a beer/soda flat: then I thought is that a giant pile? Maybe it's a snake? Uh...

Meg said...

Okay, so clearly the lot is worth $286,900 if they are telling you to BYOB, bulldozer, that is. Then again, BYOBooze might be appropriate too.

unbelievable. even for us. in midland, texas, in the middle of our Ain't-It-Wonderful Oil Boom.

Theresa said...

This is why we teach our children not to play with matches. And then we keep the matches is a safe place... next to the crib is not a safe place.

Love the ad, "Trash and garbage have not been removed. Public records do not state Sq Ft of lot nor building. Age is an estimate. Bulldoze and start from scratch."

Wow .. who would take this .... like a previous comment said, the little gremlin home in the backyard is a complete deal breaker :)
