(Updated: The story has been updated here.)
When shopping for your dream home, you need to accept that no house will be 100% perfect. Maybe it’s a bit of a fix-er-up. Maybe the kitchen has ugly tile. Maybe the bedroom’s paint job needs to be touched up. Maybe the current tenant won’t move and won’t pay rent and you better just suck it up, buttercup!
Seriously. Zillow has a listing for a Cayce, South Carolina home with 4-bedroom, 3-baths and a pretty unique detail:
Upstairs apartment cannot be shown under any circumstances. Buyer assumes responsibility for the month-to-month tenancy in the upstairs apartment. Occupant has never paid, and no security deposit is being held, but there is a lease in place. (Yes, it does not make sense, please don’t bother asking.)
Now, considering this eccentricity and the “as is” status, you might think $130,000 is a bit steep. But think of this less like a home where you can feel at ease, and more like purchasing a mystery! A HOUSE FULL OF MYSTERIES! The first act of a horror movie starring you!
Like, what happened to this ceiling?
Is that a fire pit or perhaps a grave next to that—um—sculpture of a paperclip? What are these?
What’s the story between this distinctive paint job and broken window combo?
AND WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE MYSTERY UPSTAIRS? WHO LIVES THERE? WHY DON’T THEY PAY RENT? WHY CAN’T A PROSPECTIVE BUYER EVEN ASK ABOUT THIS STRANGE SCENARIO? HOW DO YOU CALL THIS A 4-BEDROOM HOME WHEN THE POTENTIAL OWNER ISN’T ALLOWED ACCESS TO ONE OF THEM!?
Our guess: This place is hella haunted.
