Almost five months ago I wrote about Dorothea Puente’s duplex coming on the market. If you don’t know Puente’s history, she ran a “boarding house” in the 1980s out of her Sacramento Victorian duplex at 1426 F Street. She drugged and murdered tenants to cash their social security checks. Eventually seven bodies were found buried in her backyard.
In case you were wondering, I wanted to give an update on MLS stats for this duplex that has been on the market for 148 days as of today.
It’ll be interesting to see what this property sells for in comparison to other duplex units nearby. Regardless of price, would you have any issue buying a property like this? How might a murder or other heinous circumstance impact real estate value?
