The former tenant at the house in Colorado Springs vandalized it, spray painted the walls, and left something in the fridge with a terrible smell.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a real estate listing for the house from hell, which is how the agent described a house in Colorado Springs. A former tenant vandalized it, spray painting the walls and leaving something in the fridge with a terrible smell. Some graffiti says, you won't be able to rent this again. But the market is so hot, the realtor went for a sale. She's asking $590,000 and has received multiple all-cash offers. It's MORNING EDITION.
