New York home selling for $ 828K has the scariest photos ever

It’s like a nightmare camera from a horror movie: dead vines coming through the window of an abandoned kitchen, holes in the front door, and floors, walls and ceilings, and the scariest tub on this side of “Psycho.”

And it can be your sweet home for just $ 828,888!

Welcome to 50-18 196th St., a four-bedroom property in Fresh Meadows, Queens, released in March. Neighbors call the brick shack a monstrosity.

“This is a beautiful neighborhood, and the house [is] terrible, “said one area resident, who declined to provide his name for privacy, of the property on a prime corner.” I don’t know what happened in that house, why they kept it that way, or why the city didn’t. did nothing about it … I’m sure no one wants to buy that kind of house for the price. “

Records say an entity titled DCG Realty LLC bought the house for $ 675,000 in 2005 from a man named Michael Robinson, who died in 2007.

“They kept him obviously unattended for an extended period of time,” listing agent Douglas Elliman W. Kenny Thongpanich of the owners, whom he declined to identify, said. “It just lacked maintenance, to say the least.”

The only thing more shocking than the condition of the residence is the price. But in this neck of Queens, which is home to the city’s main public school district, it’s the direct cost of an independent place.

“You are in an expensive market. . . Compared to other parts of Queens, it is significantly more expensive, but relative to the surrounding properties, it is not, ”said a real estate source who was not listed. “There is a strong correlation with the quality of local schools. . . that significantly influences property values. “

The median sale price of a home in Fresh Meadows is $ 989,000 and the median sale price is $ 859,444, according to StreetEasy data from January to May.

In addition, this home is located in the coveted public school for District 26 in New York City. In 2019, 72.8 percent of students in grades 3-8 passed the state test for English language arts, and 75.2 percent passed in mathematics, according to data from the Department of Education, making it the highest-performing school district in the city.

(Citywide, the respective average pass rates were 47.4 percent and 45.6 percent.)

The property lot is a generous 4,912 square feet, according to PropertyShark. “It is in the largest size,” Thongpanich said, adding that most of the lots in the area are 4,000 square feet.

On the list, Thongpanich markets the house as “not in livable condition,” saying it is up to the buyer to renovate it entirely or tear it down, noting that the lot is zoned for a single-family home. “Essentially, you would have a property in perfect condition. . . that’s going to be, if not higher, at market value. “

“[The block] it’s peaceful, “said a neighbor who grew up across the street from 50-18 196th St. and declined to give his name.” You never hear sirens. “

Thongpanich added that he included the grotesque list of images in a gesture of “transparency.”

The area resident added that there is really only one destiny that should await this house of horrors: bring it down.

“I hope so,” he said. “Because it is terrible.”
