A man says he is “overwhelmed” by the $1.2 million house he bought at a garage sale.
The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, said he bought the house at the beginning of this year and has since bought about $1 million worth of items from it.
“I just thought, ‘Man, I wish I could have lived there and been here a year and a half ago.'”
He said he has also rented out the house to family members and friends.
“It’s a lot of money for a house that was just sitting in a garage.”
The man said he is now thinking about moving out.
“But I’m still very grateful for what I have.”
The house was originally listed for $1,200,000 but now sells for about $950,000.
The seller, who also wished to remain unnamed, said the house has had no issues with its condition, and he has been living in it for the last year.
The buyer said he’s also been very supportive of his new home.
“We’re still all friends and all this, but it’s just, like, all the money I spent.”
The buyer has been in the market for a new home for three years, but he said he was unable to find one until this year.
“The only thing that’s really helped me is the internet,” he said.
“Because I know my friends.”
