From The Real Deal:
Fans of the Netflix series “Stranger Things” found a real-life portal into The Upside Down by paying double the asking price for an 1,850-square-foot piece of memorabilia.
A Fayetteville, Georgia, house that featured prominently in the series’ first season as the home of the fictional Byers family hit the market recently, but it didn’t stay on the market long. It was placed under contract in about a week, according to Insider, for nearly twice its $300,000 ask.
The home is more than 120 years old and in need of significant renovations that the longtime owner couldn’t afford, according to Michael Smith of eXp, who listed the property. He told the New York Post that the fixer-upper needs between $50,000 and $100,000 in repairs.
