A Mississippi home with a huge fallen tree on the roof, branches erupting from its walls, has gone on the market for $25,000 after a major flood in Jackson.
The three-bedroom-and-a-bath at 2046 Willow Way in the southern state capital was put up for sale by real estate group Neighbor House just over a month ago, on Aug. 2, according to Williams Real Estate Auction.
Reasons why the tree fell, as well as the date, are not yet known. The property is also 1,034 square feet and has been checked out 3,737 times on Zillow.
DailyMail.com has reached out to the listing’s agency for comment.
A picture of the house appears to show the house leaning massively, as portions of its roof appear to be missing, while part of its wall appears to have been crushed by the tree’s branches.

The home’s sinking came about a month before excessive rain was reported in the Jackson area, causing many homes to flood.
Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves last week declared a state of emergency after one of Jackson’s water treatment plants malfunctioned as rainstorms caused low water pressure across much of the capital.
The low pressure raised concerns about firefighting and people’s ability to shower or flush toilets.
The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency has been distributing both potable and nonpotable water in the city of 150,000 for nearly a week, and the National Guard is also helping with the local shortage. The governor said he understands that the people of Jackson don’t want problems with the water system.
‘I get it. I live in the city. It’s not news I want to hear,” Reeves said. “But we will be there for you.”

A swollen Pearl River flooded streets and at least one home in Jackson on Monday, days after storms dumped torrential rain, but water levels began to recede.
Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba said the water did not rise as high as expected. Previous forecasts indicated that about 100 to 150 buildings in the Jackson area were at risk of flooding.
“Most of all, we thank the Lord for sparing so many of our residents,” Lumumba said Monday, hours before the governor spoke about the water system.
The National Weather Service said the Pearl River reached a height of about 10.8 meters. This is just before the major flood level of 36 feet (10.97 meters).
Jackson has two water treatment plants, and the larger one is near a reservoir that provides most of the city’s water supply. The reservoir also plays a role in flood control.
Lumumba — a Democrat who was not invited to the Republican governor’s press briefing — said flooding has caused additional problems at the treatment plant and low water pressure could last for a few days.
“I liken it to when you’re drinking from a styrofoam cup, someone pokes a hole in the bottom, you’re constantly trying to fill it up while it’s constantly leaking out at the bottom,” Lumumba said.

Jackson has long had problems with his water system. A cold snap in 2021 left a significant number of people without running water after pipes froze.
Similar issues resurfaced on a smaller scale earlier this year. The city has been under a boiling water warning since late July after tests revealed cloudy water quality that could lead to health problems.
Lawmakers reacted with alarm to Jackson’s recent water system problems.
“We have grave concerns about the health and safety of citizens,” said Republican Lt. gov. Delbert Hosemann in a statement on Monday, suggesting that the state take a role in trying to solve the problem.
Republican House Speaker Philip Gunn said he has been contacted by hospitals, businesses and schools “with requests to do something to address the water crisis in Jackson.”
The state of Mississippi will now get $75 million to address water issues under a bipartisan infrastructure bill, the Biden administration announced last week.
