Dustin Diamond’s Abandoned, Trashed House Has Finally Been Sold Two Years After His Death

After two years, Dustin Diamond’s abandoned, trashed house has finally been sold. According to NYP, it was sold for $276,400 to a real estate developer who is planning to tear down the structure and turning it into some type of commercial property.

Best known for his role as Screech Powers in “Saved By the Bell,” Diamond owed $269,326 to Wells Fargo, records show. He had initially put a $68,000 down payment on the home back in 2003 when he purchased the four-bedroom property for $340,000.

Before his death, Diamond revealed in an interview with TMZ he didn’t understand how he owed such a huge sum and that a busted water main had flooded his basement and made him lose 30 years of memories.

“Foreclosure means nothing when a house is destroyed … with my items I’ve lost,” Diamond said at the time. “It now feels like Wells Fargo is trying to kick me when I’m down.”

On Feb. 1, 2021, Diamond lost his battle to extensive stage four lung cancer only a month after his diagnosis. He was 44.

The home, which spans 3,000 square feet and is situated on half an acre, has since glided on and off the market until its recent sale. Only exterior photos of the home were included in the previous listing with the description: “great rehab project.”

Screech had a hard life, and then it was over quick.

In early January 2021, Diamond was diagnosed with extensive stage four small cell carcinoma of the lungs. He completed one round of chemotherapy in Cape Coral, Florida, but died from the disease on February 1, 2021, at age 44.

After Diamond’s death, Dan Block, the founder of Insurance King, partnered with Josh Bilicki, driver of the #52 Rick Ware Racing Ford to run a tribute car for Diamond, finishing 18th in the 2021 Verizon 200 at the Brickyard. Block and Diamond were close friends, and Block would say of Diamond “Everyone he was surrounded with was because of who he was,” Block said. “He had a few people who were around him because of the person. The people who were treating him not like Screech, could talk to him and give him tough love … he really didn’t have many of us around him. It definitely went above and beyond the call of a business relationship.”
