Even The Home Alone House Can't Sell

The house made famous by Home Alone, the 1990 movie that showed us all it’s okay to be neglectful parents of obnoxiously precocious children because that same precocity will come in handy when fighting off a pair crooks straight from Central Casting, has been up for sale for a few months now. But in spite of all the press this piece of real estate has received, it hasn’t attracted a buyer.

Thus, the Chicago Tribune reports that the house’s original $2.4 million price tag has been cut by 9.375% to the more affordable price of $2.175 million. And with interest rates so low these days, you might be able to afford a mortgage… on a much less expensive house.
