“It was insane”: Vandalized Colorado home — a slice of hell — quickly sells above asking price – The Denver Post

2 min read

A damaged Colorado Springs home, marketed as “a slice of hell,” has sold for well above its asking price and in less than a week after the property’s listing went viral.

“It was insane,” said Mimi Foster, a local Realtor with 30 years of experience. “Over a three-day period, we had over 500 text messages, 300 emails, 22 actual offers in hand and about 50 text offers.”

On Saturday morning alone, the property listing had more than 807,000 clicks on Redfin.

“If you dream of owning your own little slice of hell and turning it into a piece of heaven, then look no further,” the listing, written by Foster, read.

The 3,598-square-foot home on 4525 Churchill Court listed Tuesday for $590,000.

The seller, who lives out of state, has accepted an offer from a local, neighborhood couple, Foster said.

“There were many brisk offers, but they (the buyers) are neighborhood locals and that’s one of the reasons their offer was accepted,” Foster said. “The buyers grew up in the neighborhood, they have friends on the cul-de-sac. They are anxious to bring it back to its majestic glory. We didn’t take the highest offer, we took the best offer.”

The Colorado Springs housing market, like many areas in Colorado, is on fire. In May, single-family homes sold in nine 9 days at 105% of the asking price on average, according to the Colorado Association of Realtors.

The Churchill Court home sold in four days. The buyer is inspecting the property on Sunday and it’s under contract to close by July 9.
