    I do have to add this edit though.

    That is a huge red flag.
    In a real estate market where everything is going up in price, an enormous cut in price like that has to be for a reason.

    Don't overthink this.

    Drill a 1/2" to 1" hole in the side and run a rope through.
    Tie a big knot on the rope so it won't pull out of the hole.

    20years ago I bought a plastic one at Lowes.
    It broke about three months ago so I bought another one.
