Dilapidated three-bedroom home goes up for auction - but prospective buyers ...

A dilapidated home with extensive damage, graffiti scrawled on the walls and rubbish littered throughout is being sold at auction - but potential buyers will not be able to view it before making a bid.

The three-bedroom home in Marsden, 30 minutes south of Brisbane, is described as a 'mystery box' property by real estate company Ray White.

Access to the home is restricted, and it is being sold on its 'potential' rather than as a practical living space in its current state.

Squatters moved in to the property after the last tenants moved out, and caused the damage to the house.

A neighbour had to rush next-door in order to put out a fire which had started in one of the rooms, Ray White real estate agent Ryan McHarg said.

'The majority of the damage happened once the old tenants moved out,' he said.

'People found out pretty quickly that there was no one living there and then they made their way in.' 

Mr McHarg said he has had 'heaps of interest' in the home despite its ruined condition.
