Apartments in the maligned Opal Tower in Sydney are already offered for $ 1 by buyers who are looking for cash for the question marks that are still around the cracked complex.
The newly built tower in the Olympic Park was evacuated on Christmas Eve after cracks were found in the building, fearing it would collapse.
Most residents have now been told that they can return home, but real estate agents still seem to have difficulty moving their houses to the Homebush Tower.

The offerings in the basement have been reported by a publicly traded agent responsible for units in the Homebush tower, who said low-bargaining bargain hunters were the least of his concerns.
Du Yang, who works for SY Realty, said that potential buyers have withdrawn $ 400k offers and even pulled their interest in their offers when they realized where they were.
The agent also shared the e-mail with the unlikely price tag with The Daily Telegraph.
& # 39; Are you considering the controversy recently, what about making a deal? $ 1, take it or leave it, & # 39; read the email.
An apartment in the 33-storey tower is on sale for $ 720,000, and Mr. Yang said the financial blow he had taken if he himself had a unit in the tower gave him sleepless nights.

"This must have been the Australian dream and now it has become the Australian nightmare," he told the publication.

Although people have been told that they can go home, a resident claimed that they had not yet received written confirmation that they could do so.
