Should have D23 announce its for sale. Someone will buy it then.

Makes sense for Disney/D23 to do something with it as part of their Walt Museum. Surprised they haven't. Granted Walt Disney wasnt in it long but still a part of his history.

You wanna go halvsies, Ken?

I am surprised he is having this hard of a time selling this house even if it doesn't have the Disney attachment to it. $199,000 for this size house seems reasonable.

Now with Disney being involved, you would think this is a steal.

Oh well, most people don't recognize Walt being from Chicago it seems.

That house wouldn't go for half that in Cleveland.

Wow. I need to buy property in Cleveland and hope for a turn around.

Well we just happen to have a house for sale!

I knew you were going to say that..

Ive heard your rants for property values.. I worry I get it and it continues downward.

But I guess at some point it has to turn around right? Im just not used to that.. But I live in a fairly major military/tourist area which really has been sheltered economically.

Let me know when you hit the low 20s Jeff :)

Maybe they'd get more interest if they attached a big wizards' hat to the top of the home.

Maybe toss a set of mouse ears on the roof as well?

Maybe a hand, with a wand? Oh, I thought we were talking about making things uglier.

Wait! Dont forget a big year attached to it too. Perhaps Walts' birth year.

If you toss any Disney insignias on it the price would likely double, but I'm not sure there would be any more interest. :)
