Housing Market So Hot, Burned House Going For Almost $400,000 In Massachusetts

A home in a suburb of Boston, seriously damaged by fire, is up for sale with an asking price of $399,000.

WBZ-TV reported that the listing for the home in Melrose, Massachusetts is evidence of how hot the housing market is.

The online listing for the burned three-bedroom, 1,857-square foot home states: “House is in need of a complete renovation or potential tear down and rebuild… House being sold as-is.”

The Boston Globe reported that firefighters had to tear out parts of the walls and ceiling of the home to get the fire under control in August.

Whether you are buying or selling — what’s your story of just how crazy the housing market is right now?
