EAU CLAIRE (WQOW) – A house that has garnered a lot of attention for its unique location directly in front of Walmart in Eau Claire is now up for sale. However, the asking price might be out of your budget.
Kleven Real Estate, the listing agent of the home, tells WQOW the house and the 2.3 acres it sits on can be yours for the price of $2.5 million. The home built in 1952 is only 1,064 square feet.
The real estate listing shows it as lot/land and not a home.
Dave FitzGerald, a broker with Kleven Real Estate, told WQOW that is because “nobody in their right mind” would pay $2.5 million for that house. He said you could buy really any house in Eau Claire County for that price.
FitzGerald said he does not believe the house is currently lived in.
FitzGerald said commercial land and homes are both sold based on square footage, and this land is worth far more than the actual home because of where it is located. He said the buyer would likely demolish the house and build some kind of commercial business there – like a convenience store.
Aside from this house, the other most expensive house for sale in Eau Claire is for $1,995,000.That five bed, eight bath (5 full, 3 half) home is 12,850 square feet and sits on 80 acres, according to Realtor.com.
