Real Estate Expert: Tanja Nelson
As a result, real estate expert Tanja Nelson explained, “Everybody knows the story around here,” further added, “It’s a nice enough house and the neighbourhood’s awesome. It would have sold by now if someone local felt comfortable enough to buy it.”

Also, the Netflix documentary is merely set to boost the slur around the property. As a result, discount anywhere from 5 per cent to 25 per cent will be mandatory to sell the house.
