This house made headlines this week as it sold in multiple offers for over the asking price.
I’ll be brutally honest (for a change) and tell you that I think this is nothing but a novelty, and there’s nothing practical about this home…
And here’s something I forgot to mention in the video: there are no closets! Not a single closet in the entire house! No front hall coat closet, no storage closet, and no closets in the bedrooms. I suppose you can just throw your clothing on a pile in the floor of the room…
Hey, I think this is a ‘cool’ house; who wouldn’t!
But it’s only really cool when you’re eight years old, you drive by with your parents, and you say, “Look, look, that house is blue! Do you think elves live there? Or maybe the Mad Hatter?”
I think it’s cool today in a “huh, wow, neat” kind of way, but would I want to live there? Would I want to own this place? Would I sell it to a client?
Despite all this, there is a feel-good ending to this story.
Rumor has it – the seller took less money to sell the property to somebody he liked; somebody who he thought would cherish the home and see his vision, rather than simply accept the highest offer from a buyer who he didn’t identify with.
And you know what? It’s not the first time I’ve heard of this happening, and it won’t be the last.
