Ok, here is one that threw me for a loop which made me start researching things. Okay, I had a lady call this evening who saw my bandit sign. I asked her about the property, and it seems like a decent property. 3 bedrooms 2 baths with 3 additional rooms in the basement, 3500 sq. ft. new roof, siding, water heater, air, and gutters.
I went through the list of questions, and I asked how much she wanted for the house. She says all she wants is what she owes which is 34k. As our conversation grew on, she told me that they put new siding on the house but painted over the siding the color purple. I went on with the conversation, I asked why she is needing to sell her home. She is 100% convinced that the house is haunted, and that's why she painted the house purple to keep the ghosts out. SHe bought the property 6 years ago knowing that their was a double murder that took place in the home. So, with doing a quick due diligence, I called one of my daughter's friends that lives in the same town. Coulter is a small town with a population of 1200 people. She did verify that there was a double murder that took place in that home.
Now, with Coulter being such a small town, do you think it will be hard to get rid of because of the harsh past that house had? Second, Iowa law states that if you believe your house to be haunted, or if a murder happened in the home you have to disclose that to the buyer. Do any of you know about this??
So, what do you all think about this one? If I where going to get this, I would not hold on to this for a retail buyer, I would assign this property and get rid of it.
Looking for some honest opinions....
