AKRON, Ohio (WTVN) -- The childhood home of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer is on the market. The home, which sits of a wooded lot of nearly 2 acres, was also the scene of the murder of the first of his 17 victims.
"The house didn't kill anyone. It's still a good solid home. It's in a fabulous area," said Richard Lubinski, the Realtor tasked with selling the property.
The owner is asking $295,000 for the 2 bedroom home with 2.5 baths and a 2 car garage. Lubinski says the owner lives out of state and is renting the home to a friend and no longer wants the home. He's tried to sell it before, but with no luck.
"Certainly challenging. It's an interesting home with a colorful past," said Lubinski.
The house has so far been getting more attention from reporters than potential buyers. Lubinski says a TV crew from Japan visited to do a story and he had already been called about 15 times by reporters before 11am Tuesday.
"I have two people that are very interested in it, but no official offers at this point," he said.
Lubinski is only showing the home to people who are actually serious about buying the home. He requires a copy of an acceptance letter from a reputable bank before you can take a look.
The housing market has picked up, and Lubinski says Bath Township, where the house is located, is a popular area for home buyers.
