This Particular South Carolina Real Estate Listing Does Surprise Me

Dear Diary,

I wasn't expecting there to be a Part II to my "surprising" real estate post, but that's life.

Perhaps you've seen the Internet break over what one Twitter user has called, The Nightmare House. (To see the listing for yourself, click on 'The Nightmare House' to be directed to the page.)

If not, then let's first observe the listing photos:

The ceiling in what I assume is the kitchen. Talk about your all-time Fixer Upper. 

The exterior is oddly charming ...  

Kitchen ... 

Oh hello. 

This is really creepy. Did the home's former occupant just get up and leave? 
Is that a suitcase on the chair? What is going on here?

When the description's opening line is -
Please read carefully before scheduling showings. May not qualify for financing. 
... I'm equal parts intrigued and terrified. But wait, there's more -
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.)
Further research on this property suggests a professional artist lives in the upstairs apartment, and if so, this could be one of the most spectacular performance art pieces I've ever encountered.

Now, whether this listing is serious or not likely depends upon the courage of the potential buyer and the cooperation of the tenant. But for the bargain price of $130,000, you could be the proud owner of this 2,656-square foot (only 1,742-square feet is yours to inhabit though) sensational sh!tstorm.

Buyer beware?
