A Holiday Foreclosure Nightmare

I have heard tales of mistaken identity before, but this case takes the cake...and apparently everything else in the property.

In a major foreclosure faux pas, a realty company had the condo of a woman cleaned out, mistaking her property for the real foreclosed property next door.

The homeowner is now in a battle with the Realty company to either get all of her stuff back or be compensated. And since the company isn't coming back with her belongings (furniture, clothing, dish ware, etc), she is asking for $100,000 - 200,000. They are offering her $5,000. That's a lot of ground in the middle on which to meet.

How big was this condo?

while 5,000 seems light. 200K seems like a lot of furniture and belongings. But if she had some jewelry and family keepsakes that can be hard to replace.
Was it the Realtors or the banks fault?
Did the bank give the realtor the wrong address?

These are taken before the company removed all of her stuff.

Not 100K worth of stuff and a bit depressing. but I guess she was in foreclosure process as well.
