It’s hard to believe, but the house sale that’s going on in Millburn, South Africa has gone viral.
It’s not the first time it’s happened.
The seller told the ABC that he bought the house for $8,000 in 2009.
He said he only wanted to sell it for “just” $2,000, but had no money to pay the mortgage, so the buyer took it to a property agent.
They were told that the property had a “high” value and would be worth more than $10 million.
So, the buyer decided to buy the property for $10.5 million, which was a total loss.
It’s now been sold for $9.8 million.
The seller said he will try to sell the house again in the future.
“It’s going to be a good property and a nice place to live,” he said.
“I’ll do the best I can to make sure it’s a place that people want to live in.”
But it’s not going to change the fact that I’ve lost my home.
