People often design and build houses to look like no other structure on Earth thinking this will make it an oddity and therefore more valuable.
But a unique look can actually lower the value of a building, making it virtually impossible to sell because it only appeals to a niche market.
Case in point- this cartoon lover's casa in the Hillsborough, California known as "The Flinstone House", which has been on the market for years but is apparently too quirky to sell.
The Flintstone House was built in 1976 and renovated in the 80s after the building suffered weather damage, and even though it's now artsy and upscale in a modern Stone Age kind of way the price is dropping by the day.
Something about the house has made it sit on the market without interest for years, and the price has dropped $1 million in the last year despite the house being seen as a Bay Area landmark.
Whatever it is, it can't be this amazing bathroom setup, look at that crazy caveman style shower!
