After nearly three months on the market, the Colorado property where Chris Watts murdered his pregnant wife and two young daughters appears to have found a buyer.

According to property records, the Frederick, Colo. home has been pending sale since Wednesday, July 3. It was first put on the market in April for $775,000, PEOPLE previously reported, followed by a price cut down to $750,000 at the end of April.

A second price cut in May had the home listed at $749,500 when it entered into pending sale status. The 4,177-square-foot property includes five bedrooms and four bathrooms, and the nearby Colorado Rocky Mountains can be seen from the home.

Rovena Flores of Dream Real Estate currently holds the listing.

The home played a large role in the September 2020 Netflix documentaryAmerican Murder: The Family Next Door, which dives deep into Watts’ motive behind the murders.

It further explains how the property became a crime scene after Watts strangled his wife Shanann — who was 15 weeks pregnant with their son at the time — and smothered their two young daughters Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3.

According to officials, Chris’ motive behind the unthinkable crimes was a result of him having an affair with his co-worker who believed he was already separated from Shanann before he committed the murders.

He received a life sentence in prison after pleading guilty to the murders in November 2018 to avoid a possible death sentence.

The Watts family purchased the Colorado home in 2013 for $399,954. For nearly four years after the 2018 crimes, the home remained vacant until it was purchased in 2022 for $600,000, according to property records.

Chris later went into default on the mortgage following the murders and the lender foreclosed on the property. His debts increased when he agreed to pay $6 million to Shanann’s parents after they filed a wrongful death lawsuit against him.

PEOPLE reached out to listing agent Flores for comment but did not yet receive a response.
