The Boulder house where JonBenet Ramsey's body was discovered 14 years ago is for sale — again — after its owners pulled it off the market
more than a year ago.

The 7,240-square-foot house at 749 15th St. is listed for $2.3 million by two Realtors with Boulder-based Metro Brokers/Kearney Realty. The
home, where the 6-year-old daughter of John and Patsy Ramsey was found dead in the basement on Dec. 26, 1996, was last purchased in 2004.

Tim Milner and his wife, Carol Schuller Milner — whose father is “Hour of Power” televangelist Robert H. Schuller — bought the home for $1.05
million at that time. They tried to sell it in July 2008 for $2.68 million and again in May 2009 for $2.29 million.

It was last taken off the market Jan. 26, 2010, after 244 days. Realtor Neil Kearney said no one is currently living in the home.

The Ramseys bought the home, which had an address of 755 15th St. at the time, for $500,000 in 1991, according to Boulder County assessor
records. In 1998, the Ramseys sold the house for $650,000 to a group of investors who vowed to resell it and donate the profits to the JonBenet
Ramsey Children's Foundation.

The new listing can be found at Zillow.com.

The online posting describes the house as a “stunning, updated, classic Uni-Hill home.”

“Elegance of past generations combined with modern updates make this home unique,” according to the listing. “Huge rooms, great light and an
over-sized, gated lot on a fine street just a short walk from CU and Chautauqua.”

                                                       Ramsey house up for sale again

                 Home where JonBenet's body was found is on the market for $2.29 million



The former Ramsey home on 15th Street in the University Hill area of Boulder is back on the market.

Boulder Daily Camera


BOULDER, Colo. — The house where JonBenet Ramsey’s body was discovered more than 12 years ago is back on the market, again.

The 7,240-square-foot house at 749 15th St. is listed for $2.29 million. The home, where John and Patsy Ramsey’s 6-year-old daughter was
found dead in the basement on Dec. 26, 1996, can be found listed at the Re/Max of Boulder’s Web site, www.boulderco.com.

The online listing describes the home as a “spectacular and stunning 1920s Tudor masterpiece on gated oversized lot in coveted Uni Hill.”

The Ramseys purchased the house, then known as 755 15th St., for $500,000 in 1991, according to Boulder County assessor records.

In 1998, the Ramseys sold the house for $650,000 to a group of investors, who pledged to resell it and donate profits to the JonBenet Ramsey
Children’s Foundation.

In 2004, Tim Milner and his wife, Carol Schuller Milner — the daughter of “Hour of Power” televangelist Robert H. Schuller — purchased the
home for $1.05 million.

Carol Milner did not return a phone call Friday, but Julie Meko, who is showing the home for Re/Max of Boulder, said she doesn’t think there will
be a problem selling the home despite its association with the decade-old slaying.

“It’s been 12 years” since the murder of JonBenet, Meko said. “The Milners, who have lived there since then, have loved that home. It’s a house
that’s had lots of loving families in it.”

Meko said it’s important to note that the Ramsey family only lived in the home for a few years of its 84-year existence.

She also said that, despite the downturn in the national housing market, “the good ones still have a chance of selling.”

“We have more inventory than usual,” she said. “But there are homes that have gone under contract and sold in this price range.”

JonBenet Ramsey house back on market for $2.68M

Boulder Daily Camera
By Alicia Wallace

Wed. July 2, 2008



The former Ramsey home on 15th Street in the University Hill area of Boulder is back on the market.


www.dailycamera.com/news/2008/jul/02/ramsey-house-back-market/


The house where JonBenet Ramsey’s body was discovered nearly 12 years ago is back on the market.

The 7,092-square-foot, four-story house at 749 15th St. — the former home of John and Patsy Ramsey, whose 6-year-old daughter was
murdered and found in the home’s basement on Dec. 26, 1996 — recently was posted on the public listings for $2.68 million.

The listing price is more than double its $1.05 million sale in 2004, and is comparable to or slightly more expensive than other similar-sized
houses on the market in the neighborhood, according to local real estate data. During the past six months, 11 houses in the neighboring area
sold at prices between $1 million and $3 million. Of those 11, two sold for more than $2.5 million.

Thirty-seven other neighboring homes, in the $1 million to $3 million price range, are active on the market. Three homes are listed higher than
the 749 15th St. asking price.

When it comes to real estate stigmatized by past crimes and catastrophes, time sometimes can be a healer in terms of market value, said
Randall Bell, an appraiser, economist and nationally known expert on damaged real estate.

Bell, a principal of Bell Anderson & Sanders LLC, has consulted on economic damages caused by crime scenes including JonBenet Ramsey’s
home, the Heaven’s Gate Mansion in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., and the Nicole Brown Simpson condominium in Los Angeles.

“Emotionally, it may not go away, but in terms of real estate values, it does go away,” Bell said, noting that the Beverly Hills house where actress
Sharon Tate was stabbed to death in 1969 sold for its full value 20 years later.

Generally speaking, Bell said, it takes about seven years for values and the neighboring area “to get back to normal.”

A house with a sordid past “will bother some people, but it won’t bother others,” he added. “As time goes on, the situation gets better.”

John and Patsy Ramsey purchased the house, then known as 755 15th St., for $500,000 in 1991, according to Boulder County assessor
records. In 1998, the Ramseys sold the house for $650,000 to a group of investors, who pledged to resell it and donate profits to the JonBenet
Ramsey Children’s Foundation. In 1999, E.J. “Doc” Kreis, a University of Colorado strength and conditioning coach, rented the house for two
years.

In 2004, Tim Milner and his wife, Carol Schuller Milner — the daughter of “Hour of Power” televangelist Robert A. Schuller — purchased the
home for $1.05 million.

When the Milners bought the Tudor-style home, Tim Milner told the Camera that the house’s size made it seem like a “perfect fit” for him, his wife
and four children.

A year-and-a-half later, a for-sale sign appeared in front of 749 15th St.

At the time, Tim Milner told a reporter that the value of his home dropped when news stories or television features appeared about the JonBenet
killing. Milner also complained about a continuous stream of onlookers and sight-seers who would stop and sometimes take pictures in front of
the house’s gated exterior.

The Milners, who live and work in California, could not be reached for comment for this article.

A year later — when John Mark Karr was arrested as a suspect in the JonBenet crime — a Florida newspaper reported that the house had been
pulled off the market. A 36-year-old Florida man, who reportedly signed a contract to purchase the home for $1.7 million, claimed to the paper
that his deal had fallen through.

Karr was later exonerated of the crime when his DNA did not match crime-scene evidence.

A few days ago, the Ramsey house was back on the selling block. Listed by Colorado Landmark Realtors and its founder Joel Ripmaster — who
brokered past sales of the house — 749 15th St. is touted as a “spectacular 1920s home on (a) large lot with incredible trees and landscaping in
the coveted University Hill district.”

A slide show of pictures on the property’s Web site show a handful of rooms in the spacious house: a serenely staged dining room; stainless
steel appliances that sit among stark, black cabinetry; a master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace.

The basement, which is listed as a “Rec. Room” on the property detail, is not pictured.

Ripmaster did not return calls seeking comment.

{{{ Note from HAUNTED COLORADO:   I do not know whether or not the Ramsey house is haunted.

I have it listed on my website because it is a widely-publicized and stigmatized property where a murder took place.

August 5, 2006
The Rocky Mountain News


The former home of JonBenet Ramsey in Boulder was included this week in a Wall Street Journal story about "stigmatized properties." The home,
on 15th Street, is on the market for $1.7 million.

But the home has lost some of its stigma.

The Journal reports that the home has had three different owners since the girl's death 10 years ago. During that time the sale price has
appreciated 60 percent.

That's pretty good, even in Boulder where prices are inflated. Tim and Carol Milner paid $1.05 million for the 6,866- square-foot Tudor-style
property in 2004. The couple is moving to California, and the home is again on the market.

"There's no doubt that some people will be put off by the home's history," Carol Milner told the Journal. But it's easy enough to get over, she
adds.

"I really believe that, like we did, the people who ultimately buy this home will simply appreciate the property and not worry too much about all the
headlines."

The room in the basement of the home where JonBenet's body was found has been walled off.
