As you know, selling your home and moving can be a stressful ordeal. You need to deal with realtors, mortgage companies, insurance brokers, government tax officers, and countless other issues. But when you finally close on the sale and you’re ready to move, a feeling of relief washes over you.
But for Gillian and David Walsh, they just can’t sell their house. After 13 months on the market and a $75,000 price cut, it still did not sell. Look inside to see why…
From the outside this Crosby, England home is beautiful, well-maintained, and quite large. Certainly this 6-bedroom is big enough for a growing family. But it just isn’t selling. And it’s not because it’s priced way too high. In fact, the owners have even lowered the price significantly in an effort to move the sale along.
At first it is puzzling but once you ring the doorbell and hear “Oh My Darling Clementine” play, you know you’re in for a surprise. It’s what is inside that is stopping the couple from selling their seemingly beautiful home.
Once you step inside, you’ll feel hit in the face from what seems to be an antique show. But actually it is just Gillian Walsh, 56, and her husband’s 30-years-worth of kitschy belongings. If you thought you were bad at collecting and hoarding stuff you don’t need, you’ll feel better looking side their home.
The home helped the Walshes raise eight children, but now that they’re all grown up, the 6-bedroom home is just too large for the couple.
As soon as the realtor uploaded photos of the home online, people around the world laughed at Gillian’s sense of décor.
But the couple are surprised by all the comments, and don’t understand why it’s not selling.
“They love their home,” the Walsh’s neighbor told Daily Mail. “They don’t see what all the fuss is about. It’s the house they’re selling, not the ornaments.”
Gillian and David Walsh are not the only people struggling to sell their home. A Victorian mansion in Massachusetts also has the same problem – except that house is haunted…
