A realtor in Colorado tries to sell a house in dire straits and is ruthlessly honest – and successful.
Real estate agents are not very popular. They just want to sell their buyers something, so the common cliché, and cash in for nothing. Mostly they rave about light-flooded old apartments and dream houses in the countryside. But whether they describe the flight path directly above the property just as flowery?
Mimi Foster would probably do it. Because there is one thing that the real estate agent from the US state of Colorado cannot accuse: dishonesty. She describes a single-family home with five rooms and a garage in Colorado Springs as a “little piece of hell” and “every landlord’s nightmare”. Upon entering you will notice “that there is no surface of the house that has not been embellished with black spray paint or a hammer”. Damage caused by a tenant before she was thrown out due to outstanding payments. The expressions on the walls must be so ugly that they have been censored in the photos. But you shouldn’t be put off by that, the description goes on, because it’s not nearly as bad as the freezer in the basement, which has been switched off for more than a year and is full of meat. “Honestly, you can feel the smell,” Foster told CNN.
The price: including renovation costs, an impressive 590,000 dollars. But the area is popular and the market is tense. Houses of similar size go for around $ 800,000, according to CNN. In fact, an investor has already offered $ 625,000 – without viewing, so Foster declined. “I’m sorry,” she replied. “You have to come and smell it first.”
