In the News: The home from ‘Amityville Horror’ Pending sale

Here's a house I wouldn't want to live in... but you might, if you like a fright!  The home from ‘Amityville Horror’ located at 108 Ocean Ave, Amityville, NY, went on the market in June 2016 for $850,000 and as of January 2017, the sale is pending. In May 2010, when it was previously on the market, the price was 1.15 million dollars, so the house has seen a huge drop in price over the last 6 1/2 years. Below is the article from the New York Daily News.

    The house that sparked “The Amityville Horror” book and multiple movies on the murders that took place there is back on the market.
    Currently listed for $850,000, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom Long Island home at 108 Ocean Ave. is up for sale through Coldwell Banker Harbor Light owner and broker Jerry O’Neil.
    “I’m very familiar with the house,” he told the Daily News. “A friend of mine from high school, his family owned it. I spent a lot of time in this house as a kid. It’s a beautiful home.”
    The broker added that he does not know what to expect regarding how long it will take to sell the home, which was built in 1927.

    “Real estate is a very fickle product,” he said. “Sometimes you’re disappointed, sometimes you’re pleasantly surprised.”
          O’Neil, whose brother also owned the home on the Amityville River at one point after the murders, had no reservations about accepting the listing and is taking extra steps to make sure only serious buyers get to step foot in the house and take a tour.“Buyers are going to see this only through brokers,” he said.
    The application, which O’Neill’s office will have to approve three to five days before the desired date of the viewing, states that anyone interested in seeing the listing must be financially pre-qualified and have proof of “funds.”
    Last year’s property taxes for the home were $20,856

    Caroline D’Antonio, who bought the house in 2010 for $950,000 though at one point it was listed for more than $1 million, is selling it because her husband died last year and she wants to downsize.
            She has already purchased a condo on a different part of Long Island.
    The official listing for 108 Ocean Ave. simply describes the home as a “Stately center hall colonial on Amityville River,” adding that the house deed includes a “large” boat house, two car garage and a boat slip.
          In 1974, Ronald DeFeo, 23, killed his parents and four siblings on the property. All of the victims were found face down in their respective beds inside the home.
