By David McNew / CBS News / Getty Images / CBS NEWS / CBSNews.com – FEBRUARY 03: A house in California’s San Diego neighborhood is up for sale in this photo taken on February 3, 2017.
The house is listed for $3.5 million.
A house that’s in the process of being sold in California is up in flames after an apparent arson attack.
This is the latest in a series of real estate stories in the United States.
The home is on the market in the San Diego suburb of Pacific Beach.
The seller is identified only as “John” on the listing, which is for a three-bedroom, three-bath house in the affluent neighborhood of Pacific Village.
The listing is for $1.8 million.
The property is valued at $3,622,000, according to real estate agent Mark Davis.
The area around the home has a median home value of $1 million.
The property’s history is described on the home’s website as a “once wealthy family” that moved to the neighborhood in 2006.
Davis said he believes the incident may have been sparked by a dispute between the house’s previous owners and the owners of the property’s current owners.
He said the house has been vacant for years.
“The house is in great shape, and it’s just that they didn’t use it as much as they would have liked,” he said.
“There’s a lot of other stuff going on, too, so it could be a case of someone just not liking the place.”
The listing says the house was built in 1910.
A listing of the home, which was sold for $2.4 million in 2014, said it was built with two-story planks and brick, with two bedrooms, one bathroom and two baths.
Davis said the home was a “great fit” for the neighborhood.
“There are a lot people that would like to buy it, and I think it’s going to be a great fit,” he added.
The owner of the house, a former real estate executive who is now retired, has not been identified.
The former executive told CBS San Diego he has never had any problems with the house.
