The first few lines of this listing for a Sunset Hill home at 6521 36th Ave. NW read like a dream. Then it takes an extraordinary sharp turn for the worse. Let’s get started:
“Hot home: Redfin expects this home to sell soon.”
Got it. It’s going to a free-for-all bidding war.
“Amazing view of Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. Build your dream home in vibrant Ballard.”
Sounds wonderful. A view home in Sunset Hill for just $775,000? That’s a screaming deal, so it probably has some work to do. A fixer upper, right?
“Tear down. Investor. Enter at your own risk.”
Uh oh. Can I ask why?
“Wear mask as Black mold is present. Do not enter if you are pregnant or have health issues.”
That can’t be good. Anything else?
“Property sold ‘as is’. Seller may want to remove personal items prior to closing but Seller is NOT removing most items in the house or items in the carport and items on the property.”
And there you have it, the most phenomenal 180-degree turn you’ll ever read in a home listing. You have to credit the listing agent for her brutal honesty.
Given the crazy market we’re in — and homes in Sunset Hill are selling for well over $1 million in bidding wars — any guesses how long the property will take to sell?
