Gingerbread home ad for $4.5 million strikes a nerve in Vancouver

It’s not out of the ordinary for homes in Vancouver to be pricey but one delicious piece of property may have buyers scratching their heads.

A Craigslist user has recently listed a holiday gingerbread house for sale with a steep asking price of $4.5 million.

The charming one bedroom cottage is located in the city’s West End and according to the ad, it’s one square foot in size.

The cottage is quite colourful made from gingerbread pieces and icing with a candy-covered exterior.  

The baking sheet on which its stands is unfortunately not included in the sale but the seller claims that it’s an “investor’s dream” and is only asking for “serious buyers.”

Although the housing market in the Metro Vancouver area has significantly increased from a year ago, this posting is much higher than any detached home on sale in the region.

According to Huffington Post, “the benchmark” for a detached home is $1.2 million.

The gingerbread house is still up for grabs but only for a few more weeks, as it will be demolished on Jan.1.
