Senior pranks can go right or go completely wrong. A Maryland high school was listed on Zillow for $42,069 in what school officials said was a senior prank.
The listing only appeared on Zillow for a brief period of time before being removed. A screenshot of the listing was posted on Twitter. Before its removal, Meade High School in Maryland was described as a “half-working jail” and 12,458-square-foot in size.
“All 15 bathrooms come with sewage issues,” the listing said. “There is a nice spacious kitchen and dining room, with a private basketball court!” The listing also said that the property comes with “complementary trash-scented air freshener and water issues!”
Bob Mosier, a spokesperson for Anne Arundel County Public Schools, called the listing “incredibly creative advertising.”
“But we are frankly stunned the listing so vastly under-estimated the value of a prime piece of real estate like this, especially one with such amazing amenities,” Mosier said. “I can’t imagine that there isn’t going to be a rush of bidders to snap this one up.”
School officials believe the listing was a prank put on by the seniors at the school. Mosier said administrators are taking it in good humor. “No one was hurt, no property was damaged and it was very creative,” Mosier said.
