Good luck selling this house.  I get that the market is strong, but this is a ridiculously bad location.  It looks like a home that was there long before any of the roads around it were.  And when they decided to construct the interstate, yes, interstate, the owner was a hold out and wouldn't sell or move and this is the result.

This home, which is listed with realtor, Raul Sanchez with RES Realty, is located in Minneapolis on Washington Ave.  But it is sandwiched between Washington Avenue and I-94.  Oh, and to top it off, there is a boat retailer nearby, with a parking lot basically right out the door.

The house is listed at $189,900- I'm going to be surprised if it sells for anything near $100K.  It was built in 1917 but does have some modern amenities.  The description on the listing says this:

Move in ready, cozy, potentially 3 bedroom house that sits on a centrally located lot. Ready to put your decorating touches on and move right in. Agents and buyers to verify measurements.

"Put your decorating touches" that translates to "needs work". But I think there may be more issues than just decorative situations. Can you imagine the noise level?  On the plus side you will be able to access I-94 within seconds... yes, SECONDS!  I'm really trying to find some positives.

As they say in the real estate biz, there is a buyer for everything.  And that buyer may be the boat retailer nearby who needs some more parking lot space.  Although I'm sure they aren't going to pay $189,900 for a parking lot.  Plus the removal, of the house.

This will be interesting to see what happens.

LOOK: Things from the year you were born that don't exist anymore

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
