The WORST house on the street! Real estate agent pens brutally honest listing

An estate agent has penned a brutally honest sales pitch for the ‘worst house on the street,’ a run-down, $69,000, two-bedroom Florida home with an ‘ominous energy.’

Philippa Main’s listing for the property in Zephyrhills, outside of Tampa, has gone viral for its unsparing description of the leaking roof, creaking floor and terrible draft which whistles through the bungalow.

Photos of the property reveal bare plumbing in what may have once been a kitchen, graffiti on the walls, a crooked chimney, gaping holes in the ceiling, smashed windows and a crumbling foundation. 

‘Here it is, literally the worst house on the street,’ is how Main opens her advert as she jokes that ‘if you’re looking for a house that screams “I’ve got bizarre and ominous energy!” then honey stop the car because you’ve found it right here conveniently located off of US-301 in North Zephyrhills.’

She says that the seller ‘has done the hard work’ in cleaning up the half-acre property.

‘It only took seven dumpsters,’ she adds.

‘The roof leaks, the floor creaks, and there’s a terrible draft, but this home is a very open concept. And by that we mean the inside is open to the outside because several of the windows are broken.’

Main, who studied public relations at Florida State University, has since commented on the hilarious listing.

‘I always try to be as interesting as possible,’ she told Digg. ‘But most sellers want me to stick to the more traditional kind of description, so the creativity can only go so far for my typical clients.’ 

In her advert she wrote: ‘There is a large, sunny window in the kitchen… and absolutely nothing else – a wonderful feature for someone interested in a bright reading space (and ordering take out for every meal).

Philippa Main’s hilarious full listing for the nightmare house:

Here it is, literally the worst house on the street! The Seller has done the hard work of cleaning up the almost half-acre property (it only took 7 dumpsters!), so now is your chance to take it from here.

Have you ever watched HGTV and thought, “I could do that!”? If so, pack up your tape measure and start Googling how to identify a load-bearing wall because it’s time to put your money where your mouth is!

The roof leaks, the floor creaks, and there’s a terrible draft, but this 3 bed, 1.5 bath home is very open concept. And by that we mean the inside is open to the outside because several of the windows are broken.

There is a large, sunny window in the kitchen… and absolutely nothing else – a wonderful feature for someone interested in a bright reading space (and ordering take out for every meal).

Now I know you’ve heard of a detached garage, but have you ever heard of a detached foundation?! Because that’s what you’ll find here in the large bonus room at the right of the home.
