Local real estate agent Taylor Bredin told Australian outlet 7News, as cited by The New York Post: “The fact that most people sold out years and years ago, these guys have held on. All credit to them.”
According to the outlet, Bredin claims that the land has the capability to accommodate up to 50 houses and that every single one could be valued at approximately one million dollars each.
After being offered millions of Australian dollars, the stubborn homeowners are currently still sticking to their guns and rejecting every single proposal they have received to sell the house.
The five-bedroom house might reportedly be worth around $AUD 30 million – approximately $USD 19 million – with proposals that keep on growing.
Several people on social media are sharing their thoughts on the family sticking it out, with one user praising the family and writing: “That’s so awesome. F**k your housing developments and buildings, keep that land forever.”
A second user commented that they “respect” the family’s determination but, “considering they’re now surrounded by cookie-cutter houses, and that’s what they see 24/7 at this point……I’d have said, ‘Sold’…And go find a new ~larger~ property.. Without neighbors….again”.
Meanwhile, a third added: “Good! I’m happy for the house owner. I support them!”
This just goes to show that you can’t put a price on happiness after all.
