If you’ve ever seen a metal dealer or auctioneer take a metal that belongs to another person or company and sell it for pennies on the dollar, you might be surprised to know that some of these auctions are a little more elaborate than others.
Take, for example, a house in London’s Camden borough that was sold to an eBay-like auction site.
The house has been abandoned for three years.
It was a bit of a mystery, but the buyer had a bit more money than the seller.
According to the seller, it is a property that was “lost” in a fire in 2006.
There was no owner, and the property is currently being sold for £400,000 ($650,000).
The buyer says the house has a lot of original paintings and furniture in it, and it has a very high value.
You can check if the house is yours here.
