A home in San Jose, Santa Clara County in California, USA, is selling for $800,000 which seems like quite an unreal deal for this area where median price for a single family home is around $1.4 million. That’s until you found out that the price tag is for, wait for it… a fire-ravaged home. This house had a fire and what you see in the picture is pretty much what’s left of it.
