Michigan mansion listing featuring 90s interior decor goes viral
Posted August 24
Waterford, Michigan — A listing for a mansion in Waterford, Michigan is going viral. The home sits on a lake, but the inside of the home is what has people talking.
Mark Z, the realtor selling the mansion, said he was taken aback when he first walked in.
"I was shocked that the decor has not been updated from back in time when this was the style," he said.
That time is the 1990s.
"I feel like I went back in time," said realtor Mark Z. "The colors are unique. The decor is unique."
He isn't surprised the listing is starting to go viral.
The house on Forest Bay Drive boasts more than 10,000 square feet, six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a million dollar lake view.
The various shades of pink, purple and turquoise travel from room to room.
It's on sale for approximately $800,000, although it was appraised for $1.8 million.
"It's definitely going to be a harder sell because of the uniqueness of the colors and the decor," Mark Z said.
The mansion also has features like a home theater and an indoor in-ground pool in the lower level
Mark Z says it could cost anywhere from $500,000 to a million dollars to update the inside of the house.
"For remodeling, they say anywhere from $50-$100 a square foot, I think you could recoup maybe 25 percent of that," he said.
He has a guarantee to sell a home or he will buy it, but this is a short sale, so that could be tricky.
"We would definitely purchase it for the price that we are listing it at, but in this case, like I said, we need the bank to approve it, so it kind of ties our hands."
However, he believes a buyer is out there.
