House marketed as 'Frankenstein' fixer-upper sells in 2 days, over list

The premier event for luxury agents and brokers
Luxury Connect | Oct. 16-18 | Beverly Hills

Abandoned for three years, stripped of its kitchen and bathroom fixtures, and missing part of its roof, the two-bedroom fixer-upper was in such rough shape that its listing agent did not hesitate to market the property as “Frankenstein.”

Which made the home all the more attractive to plasterer and carpenter Chris Leczynski, who bought the Melbourne, Australia, property sight unseen two days after it hit the market, paying $11,000 over the asking price of $500,000. Source:
