If you own a house anywhere near Seattle, chances are you've gotten an offer in the mail, or perhaps taped to your door, from a greedy developer looking to buy your house in order to tear it down and make a quick buck by replacing it with lego-box "density". Happens all the time, and while some dream of a really BIG offer...that'd buy them a mansion somewhere else...others think "F*** that S***, I LIVE here!" Would you sell? What about...for one million dollars? Case in point, this Seattle house said to be the inspiration behind the 2009 Disney/Pixar film that's only #7 on their never-ending list of moneymills, but #1 in jerking at the heartstrings of KZOK employees...even Captain Morgan said he cried when Ellie died. Contrary to popular rumor, this house wasn't the inspiration for the movie, but it made the news again this week when the developer in question here said it will be preserved...somehow.
As always, the phone number to use is 1-800-252-1025...good luck, and Happy Beaver Hunting!
