A Saanich real estate listing is attracting a lot of attention on social media.

TikTok user Bobbicurtislee, whose profile is described as “Oddities on Elm Street” posted a video commentary on the “creepy” Saanich listing, taking viewers on a 3-D walkthrough while she compares the home to a horror movie.

Posted on May 16, it has since garnered more than 426,000 views (and counting). Comments on the post range from disbelief to others noting the price, such as one user stating “800K for a house in B.C.? Murder scene or not, that’s a steal.”
