Asking Price For Childhood Home Of KURT COBAIN Plummets

According to The Pulse Of Radio, the childhood home of late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain has had its asking price cut drastically for the second time in two years. The four-bedroom, 1,500-square-foot bungalow in Aberdeen, Washington has just had its price slashed from $400,000 to $329,000. The house was originally put on the market for $500,000 in 2013, before the place was re-listed for $100,000 less last March.

Cobain lived in the house twice, first from when he was just a few months old until he was nine, and then again from age 16 until 20 or so.

The home allegedly still holds traces of the time that Kurt lived there, including holes he allegedly made in the walls and band logos he allegedly drew on the wall as well.

The realtor offering the house calls it a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of rock history" and suggests that "there are a number of exciting possibilities for this unique property, including moving the building and incorporating it into a larger institution or private collection."

The current asking price is still around $200,000 more than the average price for homes in Aberdeen, which is located about 110 miles southwest of Seattle.

Despite a park named after Cobain and a statue erected last year, NIRVANA biographer Charles R. Cross told The Pulse Of Radio not long ago that he doesn't think Aberdeen has done enough to honor its most famous resident. "Kurt's the most famous person that was ever born in Aberdeen and maybe the most famous person that'll ever be born, and the city has done almost nothing to honor him," he said. "The city is kind of waking up to it. Aberdeen is a city that has really struggled economically for six decades, and if they could boost their tourism just a bit, I think it would help everybody involved."

A journalist and NIRVANA fan started a GoFundMe campaign in 2014 to raise $700,000 in order to buy the house and turn it into a museum, but failed to meet the financial goals.
