The Resurrection of This Trash-Infested "Zombie House" Is Shocking

Nicknames say a lot about a person or a place - especially when they're negative. Case in point: This "Zombie House" in Portland, Oregon. After it was abandoned, it ended up becoming home to squatters who eventually left it filled with trash. When neighbors started to complain about the eyesore, Jason Rucker stepped in. In a matter of eight months he and his company, 2nd Story Investment, took the home from total neglect to cute-as-can-be.

They bought the property for a whopping 336,670 back in June of 2016 - a.k.a. less than one year ago. After investing $150,000 into a total home renovation, it was just re-listed for $599,000. Not too shabby. The flip took 248 days to finish and the results are startling - just look at the living room.

The kitchen is the last place anyone would want to cook in before, but now it's open and welcoming.

And the bathroom used to be a place to go and get dirty, not clean up. But we can imagine soaking away on a Sunday (okay, every Sunday) in here now.
