Sometimes REALTORS® find the darndest things in their listings...like a horse? OK, well maybe that's a stretch. Or how about that Florida man who found a human hand in his grandparents' house along with coins and a treasure map? It's like something right out of "The Goonies"! The point is: people have weird belongings in their home and sometimes, they are unearthed on the job by real estate agents!
So what's the strangest item that you've ever seen in a listing? Tell us and you will be entered to win $100! Simply comment on our Facebook contest post and let us know your favorite oddity that you've discovered (please limit responses to a couple of sentences). The weirder, the better! Entries can also be tweeted to @HousecallBlog - and in fact, everyone who enters and follows Housecall on Twitter will receive a bonus entry in the contest!
All participants will be entered into a drawing for $100. Entries will be accepted from Monday, May 4, 2015 to Friday, May 8, 2015. The winner will be selected at random and notified following May 8, 2015. Click here to enter on Facebook and here to tweet us on Twitter.
In showing a newer home to a young couple, the husband and I were just finishing looking at the main floor when we heard a loud screaming from the wife upstairs. We ran up the stairs to the first bedroom where there was a baby gate installed where the closet door should have been. Inside, there was a pot-bellied pig happily grunting around the closet. We had quite a laugh– and they passed on that property!
