In Case There Was Any Doubt

I did a post less than a month ago called Won't You Be My Neighbor? which vividly captured a crumbling rustbucket of a "house" that was being offered for $1.8 million. The house is located on a very busy boulevard (in spite of the "very desirable area" mentioned below), and I've been keeping an eye on it for a "Sold" sign ever since. The absence of such a sign made me think, well, people have finally come to their senses. No one is buying this dump.

Of course, this isn't the case.........I present to you this news from this morning's paper:

1115-house

I recognize that some of you might be disappointed to have let this one get away. Take heart; in the same paper, this beauty (whose paint color choices must surely be very forward-thinking) is being made available for $5.5 million. Go get 'em!
