Bargain Block Weird House Did it Sell?

The weird house was a bungalow-style house located at Westside Detroit. It has a full basement and a large backyard with bright, colorful rooms, including a spacious private bedroom and a bathroom having a glow-light floral design.
While the house was called weird, most of the viewers gave mixed reactions after the Bargain Block casts renovated it. The house was mainly memorable for its orange kitchen and a huge D-shaped window in front. Some viewers said they loved the kitchen, and some said it looked like a cupcake.
However, the house wasn’t sold until the end of the episode, and the fans were still curious about it.
So, the strange house that was once up for sale on the Bargain Block has finally been sold. After a long wait, the house was sold on November 10th, 2021, for the price of $110,900.
This is a significant increase from its original purchase price of $5,600, which the Bargain Block guys had bought it for before the renovation.

According to the source, the house is located on a 10,000 sq. ft area on Grand River Avenue in the Old Redford area of Detroit, and they moved there in October 2021.
