Weird listing

I'm going through house listing (joy of joys) and come across this one.

No picture:

2 rambler style homes for $160k. Property includes several sheds, gazebos, and storage areas. Surrounded by woods on back country road


This just screams ax murdered/horror flick to me. I almost want to go see them just to see whats wrong with them.

    I'd be curious too. Just make sure you don't go alone. 

    That has House of 1000 Corpses written all over it.

    No pictures on stuff like that weirds me out.  I automatically assume that there is something seriously wrong.  Kind of like the person who does not post any pictures on a dating website.

    Haha now THAT sounds much more promising (and less dangerous). 
    I'm going to have to tell FI about the murder compound listing you found. We are starting to look around for a house to buy too. :)

    Don't do it!! It's a horrible soul sucking process...once we find a place I'm never moving again! And if this job dh applied for pulls through we may need to rent for a bit. I'd take the job over a house (believe it or not).

    We are in an apartment now. The final straw came yesterday when our downstairs neighbor apparently burned hamburger or something and now our apartment has smelled like meat for two days. I don't care how soul sucking it is...I am sick of smelling other people. :)

    Ugh, I hear you on that. We have a little kid who lives above us who is the noisiest small child I've ever seen. But only in thumping the ground. From 6am until midnight you can hear every little step he makes. And if he jumps up and down...pictures fall off our wall. His parents are mean mofos though, so I just passive aggressively bang on the ceiling...

    Oh and speaking of smells, I don't know if you ever come down my way, but the mall at Tysons Corner added a sushi/japanese place in the center of the mall. The entire mall now smells very strongly of fish, yech.

    Bleh...that's why we waited for a top floor apartment. I would freak out if I had to hear someone above me all the time. The way our cats run around here, it probably sounds like we breed miniature ponies to the lady downstairs. Maybe the hamburger is a payback of some sort. 

    And that is just GROSS about the sushi place and honestly, that's probably a sign that it's not a good place to eat. No good sushi restaurant I have ever been to has smelled fishy.

    As we were riding up the escalator the little devil in me thought "I wonder how many times people spit off the second layer directly into the food prep area..." bad idea Tysons...bad idea...

    What was the good idea was the store selling 100 styles of boots for $20 each. Now I just need an excuse to wear my new black hooker boots...

    and my computer is exploding...

    see you tomorrow!

    Oh god don't get hit by computer shrapnel!! :)

    Good night!

    PS. $20 boot store = WAY better than stinky fish sushi joint. I'd travel for that.

    160K is a deal.  At least check it out.  Just bring the mace.

    I am still getting over the shock of the fact that you can even buy a house for $160k, murder or not.

    What's a little medium velocity spatter, really.

    Sun, the house we lost was 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom colonial with a huge backyard and porch for $160k. Too bad the stupid seller took out the entire kitchen (after accepting our offer) and that made us lose the house :(

    Our budget is only up to $175k. So yeah, looking in a fairly rural area.
