Amanda Knox was extremely disappointed with her recent reconviction for the alleged murder of Meredith Kercher.
Realtors trying to sell the property in Perugia, Italy, in which the murder took place, are even more disappointed – but for a different reason, of course!
According to a report in RadarOnline.com, the agents attempting to sell the house have recently slashed the price by $100,000 from the original asking price of $630,000.
They are especially anxious to dispose of the property before a possible battle erupts for Amanda Knox to be extradited, with all the attendant publicity that will bring.
Could the property be carrying “The Curse of Amanda Knox”?
The property, actually a villa, is owned by Aldalia Tattanelli, who is retired.
Meredith Kercher was found brutally murdered in November 2007. In 2013, the eight new tenants living in the home almost suffocated when a carbon monoxide leak nearly poisoned them all in their sleep. That was the final straw, and Tattanelli decided to sell.
An agent working for the Tecnocasa real estate agency, which is handling the sale, told Radar exclusively: “The owner of the property really wants to sell the house. But it has not been easy to find potential buyers who are willing to overlook the fact that a brutal murder took place there.”
A source said:
“The owner is adamant that everything possible be done to discourage anyone in the realtor’s office from saying a word about the murder, even though it is next to impossible to hide that fact.
The owner hates the negative association her property has with the Meredith connection and really just wants to be free of the place now.”
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to hide the truth about the history of the villa, and its connection to Amanda Knox, in a place like Perugia.
The property is being marketed as currently being in “outstanding condition,” with 5,000 square meters of land. and parking for seven vehicles.
“Frankly,” says the source, “this is a tough sell in an already tough real estate market.”
As the American realtor wryly pointed out in referring to his problem; “This house never killed anyone.”
How does that translate into Italian?
