You gotta love a market (as a seller) where an agent can use the most eloquent of beautifully descriptive words to sell such a wonderful property, in such immaculate condition and still easily (likely with stacks of offers) get a property sold.

From the marketing:

A complete TEAR-DOWN! Beyond the external frame, this home is severely damaged/charred/burned from a fire last May 2014. No electricity so access is limited to morning hours only. All potential buyers to sign a Hold Harmless Agreement prior to access. Probate sale, no court, no death in prop w/in last 3 years. NOT in habitable condition, this is more than a fixer, it’s a complete tear-down!

Listed for $299,000 (that had to be a record in and of itself), this wonderful Ingleside Heights Home just closed for $485,000.

Hey! Look on the bright side…nobody died in the property…at least “within the last 3 years”, and maybe, just maybe, the city will actually let you tear the whole thing down and start fresh.
