The housing market is still ridiculously high. Here’s a meth-contaminated house in Utah that sold for $575,000...

A rundown three-bedroom, 1,468-square-foot house in Millcreek, Utah that was known to be contaminated with methamphetamine has reportedly sold for a whopping $575,000.

The home is in an affluent neighborhood near the Wasatch Mountains where houses typically sell for $800k, and the remediation fee for cleaning up methamphetamine is only $4,500, so there's some meat on the bone there.

At least... that's what the corporate investor who bought the place thought.

According to local news, next-door neighbor April Davis said the local market was hot.

This area seems to be a really popular area for investors to do quick turnovers with homes.

As far as the methamphetamines go, Shane Woodwoth – owner of Crime Scene Cleaners, a company that cleans up meth-contaminated houses – said the problem is more common than you think.

It does shock people to know there's meth in their neighborhood, for sure. A lot of what we see are just lower levels from people using and not necessarily manufacturing.

A lot of them are a little bit lower-income homes that we go into, but we see high-end homes as well…meth doesn't discriminate, it's everywhere.

My real beef here is not that this fixer-upper hit the market because its previous occupant was a meth-user.

It's that, once again, a decent family home was scooped up by an investor with seemingly unlimited capital instead of a family!
