'The Goonies' home in Oregon sold to super-fan of the film after being listed ... trends now
The iconic home from Steven Spielberg's 1985 film 'The Goonies' has sold to a super-fan of the movie less than a week after it hit the market.
Property records indicate that the owners accepted an offer on the Astoria, Oregon home just six days after it was posted for $1.65 million.
'After the word spread that the property was for sale, we received multiple offers, at asking price and higher, and we have a full back-up offer,' says Jordan Miller of L. Scott Real Estate
According to Miller, the new owner 'promises to preserve and protect the landmark' as he is a massive fan of the coming-of-age film.
The new owner's name is expected to be released in January when the sale of the home is finalized. Miller told OregonLive.com the man describes himself as a 'serial entrepreneur.'
The 2,000 square foot house that features in the 1985 classic the Goonies was listed for $1.65million
The house, which is now owned by Sandi Preston, was recently restored ahead of its arrival on the market

In a written statement shared by Miller, the new buyer said that he hopes to preserve the integrity of the home, and reincorporate some fun aspects from the film.
'Of course, no one gets in unless they do the truffle shuffle,' he jokes in his written statement.
The local news outlet also reported that seller Sandi Preston is planning to hand off some of the movie memorabilia she has collected from fans over the years.
Additionally, the original furniture for the home, which was built in 1896, may also be sold to the new owner of 368 38th Street.
The realtor said the new owner saw the movie when it first debuted in 1985 alongside his mom, brother, sister and his friend, Mikey, and considers himself a diehard 'Goonie.'
'My childhood friendships were, and still are, instrumental to my development and success,' he told Miller.
The childhood friendships may stay strong, too, as Miller said a friend of the new owner recently bought the property next door, which had been listed at $555,000.
Preston has gone through phases of allowing and disallowing fans from coming to see the house
In 2015 blue tarpaulin appeared on parts of the house and the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce began to discourage visits
'Buying this home is one huge step in showing your dreams can become reality with the right friends around you. You don't have to be rich to achieve your dreams, but you do need a strong support group, honesty and a desire for adventure.'
He said he believes the true-meaning of being a 'Goonie' is being a fierce and protective friend to the
