Island home for sale

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Sharon Lee's Virtual Assistance

Good morning everyone-I took this picture when I went to Chincoteague and was on the boat cruise. This home is actually for sale but the thing is there is no electricity, no running water, no heat and the front step is a doozy and the only way to get to it is by boat and then you would have to put in stairs to get in it.

The crew on the boat told us the story of this home that at one time was not out in the middle of the water like this. This has happened over time with the erosion and changing of the water currents.  I didn't think to ask what the asking price was.  YOU think it might be sitting on the market for a while. LOL

I think this HOME gives a whole new meaning to the words  LOCATION, LOCATION LOCATION

Good morning Sharon Lee. Very neat but a little to remote for me. I do wonder how much it is though.

Good morning Sharon Lee,

OMG..I caught this on Kathy Streib's post this morning on her "Ah-Ha" moments for the week! Anna Banana Kruchten - AZ Top Banana of Real Estate! is right "This is waterfront property with a twist!" Maybe when Roger D. Mucci  gets both his new knees he'd check it out! LOL!

Dorie-I think even with Roger's new knees he would have a problem getting up to the house.

Wayne-Interesting indeed

If you are a good climber you might make it work.

I wonder how long it's going to be on the market with no electricity, no water, and needing boat access.

Hello Sharon ... Enjoy you write and the photo, and this home might be a great place for a restaurant.

With a generator for power and source for bringing water, boaters could stop by for a quick bite to eat ;o)

I wonder if this little gem is still on the market. I would hate to think of what could happen during a storm. Would the waves come up to the door and windows?

I am very curious about this house. I wonder if it's still on the market. It's a project home that's for sure.

Debbie Laity -Hard to say if it still is. I am sure it will just keep getting further away from land. Projrct is an understatement.

Haha - that's a challenging one to sell.  But it just might be someone's cup of tea.

Georgie I have no doubt about it. Probably submerged by now.
