Celebrity appeal usually helps shift property, but it might just be having the opposite effect in this (slightly creepy) case.
Would you buy the house that played home to Buffalo Bill, the psychotic murderer in the 1991 film Silence of the Lambs? No? Well, you're not alone.
According to a report in the New York Post this week, a Pennsylvania couple is struggling to shift the property used in the hit film.
Owners Scott and Barbara Lloyd have dropped the asking price from $300,000 to $250,000 since first listing the home last winter (US summer), despite it being the second most-clicked listing on realtor.com in 2015.
According to the article, the property’s remote location and lack of a second bathroom are playing against it.
But surely the haunting images of Buffalo Bill’s activities must play a part too, even if the property lacks the dungeon pit depicted in the film!
