You Can Buy Kurt Cobain’s Childhood Home for $100,000 Less Than the Previous Asking Price

Redfin Listing / Aberdeen Realty, Inc.

Kurt Cobain’s childhood home was put up for sale in 2013 for $500,000 and it sat on the market at that price with no buyers. Recently the seller, Kurt Cobain’s mother, decreased the list price by $100,000, so a buyer can now snag the house $400,000. According to Puget Sound Business Journal, this asking price is $300,000 more than the average price for homes in the east Aberdeen neighborhood where the 1,522 square-foot home is located.

Back in 2014, a journalist and Nirvana fan started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $700,000 to buy the home and turn it into a museum. You can check out a video of the inside of Cobain’s childhood home which was made for the campaign below. Right now, they’ve only raised a little over $2,000 to buy the property.

The 1210 East 1st Street home allegedly still holds marking of Cobain’s existence, including holes in the walls that were supposedly made by the Nirvana singer, as well as logos from bands like Iron Maiden and Led Zeppelin that were drawn on the wall by Cobain.

Redfin by Aberdeen Realty Inc. is in charge of the listing, which you can check out here, and they’re open to a buyer moving the building or selling it someone “incorporating it into a larger institution or private collection.” They call the property a “once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of rock history.” How much would you pay to own this piece of rock history?
