Just when you thought the property scene couldn’t get more bizarre.
In Washington, an uninhabitable home sitting on the edge of landslide cliff has gone up for sale for $200,000.
How it warrants that price is confusing, given it’s unkempt and doesn’t seem particularly stable.
The property has already been cut down in price – initially it went up for $250,000.
But after 17 days and a lack of responses, sellers saw it fit to slash the price.
Whether it will continue to drop in price remains to be seen, as it’s hardly a desirable buy.

It’s a real fixer-upper (Picture: NWMLS)

What the major fixer-upper does have going for it though, is views of the valley, mountains and four bedrooms.
There’s also three bathrooms and a family room, as well as the opportunity to watch picturesque sunrises.

A buyer will need to see major potential in investing and reinventing the place.
However, it is dangerously close to the landslide cliff – meaning it’s not the safest place to live without some major structural works.
The listing online says engineers have recommended ‘installing a soldier wall to stabilize the home and land for renovation’.
Surrounding the property are miles of weeds running wild and a forest, so at the very least, you’re getting privacy.
The median asking price for a property in the area, Everett is $640,000, according to Redfin – but you can see why this falls short dramatically.
