A "for sale" sign is now in the yard of the vacant, foreclosed two-story Victorian home where police once unearthed seven victims of convicted female serial killer Dorothea Puente, reported the Sacramento Bee.

The 1930 tan home with navy and white trim, listed for $309,800, is on the Sacramento historic register. A 1,834-square-foot duplex at 1426 F Street, it went through foreclosure in June 2009, with a previous price tag of $335,750.

"It isn't exactly a real estate agent's dream sales pitch: How would you like to live in a house once owned by a serial killer?" wrote David Knowles for AOL News.

But you wouldn't have to live there. The home, with a bay window in Puente's old bedroom, has a history of rental income. "It's a duplex, so it's good for an investor," bank-appointed Realtor Andrew Chechourka of Kraft Realty told the Sacramento Bee. How easy would it be to find renters willing to live in a home were murders occurred?
