Free mummy with every home sold

We've been watching the real estate market for a few years because we would like to own a home in the city. This being an expensive city, I've noticed some of the best "deals" are bank foreclosures and I often see ridiculously priced condos going for low prices. But those homes are never in the part of town that we want to settle in so I just keep my eyes and ears to the ground and march through the listings every chance I get.

But a deal sometimes comes with freebies I wouldn't want, no matter how much money I saved on the purchase.

Check out the bank foreclosure deal a man purchased recently in Spain. Can you imagine finding the previous owner mummified on the couch!?!

Ewwwwwww... no amount of steam cleaning or fumigation would make me comfortable and happy in that home. And I can only imagine what might be found in the storage closet if that was what was in the living room.

my neck of the woods is still affordable (this is a relative term) and friendly! come here! come here!

I promise I would help you find a house that was mummy-free.

How gross!! I can't imagine!

We're halfheartedly looking as well.

Eeeww! That's worse than the mummified cat puke in our cellar.

I don't know, if the price was right...

That's one of the weirdest things I've read!!!
I'd move too if I could but I'm way too lazy to pack up. My word of advice, don't come to the suburbs!!!!

:-) There are worse things than mummies, like, renovation....

We bought our first house power of sale - deal of the last century, it was.

And I second kgirl's idea - then you'll be close to metro and scarbie and marla and I, too! Yay! East End love!
