Former bin Laden home up for auction

Osama bin Laden's brother's home is up for auction in Orlando.

Osama bin Laden's brother's home is up for auction in Orlando.

A Florida Realtor is hoping someone will consider moving into an Orlando home despite knowing who used to live there.

According to NBC affiliate WESH, a local television station in Orlando, the former home of Osama bin Laden's brother is up for auction for half of what it was initially selling for.

"The investors who own the property have $4 million in it, so they're taking a 50 percent hit," said Realtor Autumn Norris-Makin in an interview with the news station.

WESH reports that Khalil bin Laden abandoned the home shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the home has been unoccupied ever since.

The news station reports the mansion sits on 17 acres of land and is now selling for $2 million.

Though its affiliation with the bin Laden family may have some movers steering clear of the property, Norris-Makin told the station that the main sticking point for the home hasn't been its former owner, but its price.

Cheap home prices in Florida are hard to come by. According to Trulia, Florida has the second highest average home prices in the country.
