  11. Seattle home too toxic to enter sparked a bidding frenzy - now we know whyRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 22, 2017 | Seattle Times

    A crumbling, toxic home that was too dangerous to enter quickly became a symbol of Seattle's scorching housing market when it sold last year for $427,000 after what the listing agent called an "insane" bidding war.
