This House May Fall Off The Cliff – Owner Decides To Sell For $850,000

This house may be teetering off the edge of a cliff but it will still cost its next owner $850,000 to purchase. 

This does seem like a lot of money for a home that doesn’t even look safe, but it’s realtor, Valerie Crowell says the property is a steal. “Mathematically, it’s not that crazy,” she said. “We are in a $1.5 million neighborhood,” according to

The home, which was damaged by a landslide that resulted from heavy rain, is located in Lafayette, California. The home is red-tagged, meaning, “Entry into the home may result in death or injury.”  

“It’s red-tagged because if there is any more shifting, there is going to be a big problem and somebody could definitely be hurt,” Crowell continued. Due to the landslide last year, the master bedroom dangles over a cliff and there are visible cracks along the floorboards. 

The tag is shown on the front door so potential buyers know the home is not safe. Besides its dangers, the home is outdated, contains stained carpets and a clear view of a construction site right outside the gate. The only attractive features of the property include a quiet community and a good school district.
