"Enter This Listing and You May Die!" Wow, how is that for putting up an obstacle to showing! The MLS comments indicate that the house is dangerous; it is most likely a tear-down. Entering will be hazardous, perhaps fatal!
Would this type of MLS Comment preclude you from Showing the house? Or would it pique your curiosity?
Enter this Listing and You May Die
I have heard of some killer listings, some that you would just die to have, others where you think you have died and gone to heaven, houses that will really slay you and some that will literally take your breath away.
But I have never heard of a listing that if you looked inside it could cause your death. The public remarks for this listing say it could cause death.
I came across this low end house while doing a home search. See low priced homes under $50,000 in Clarksville TN.
My first thought
was here is a meth house, but it's not as far as I know. It appears to be structurally compromised so much so that someone could get hurt or die according to remarks in MLS.
Enter this Listing and You May Die. Would a better marketing strategy be to say "Selling as-is" no showings allowed, purchase based on outside visual inspection only, absolutely no entry allowed?
So what did I do?
Since MLS did not show a photo of this property I had to go see for myself. I first stood in the road to take my photo then curiosity pushed me to get a little closer. I stepped a few feet into the front yard and took a few more shots. Did it look bad? Yes, but frankly I have seen worse. Did I step any closer to the house, of course not. I am not ready to die.
