The $250 Bigfoot costume was “very hot and uncomfortable,” he said.Luckily, the shoot only took an hour.“We came prepared,” Oster said.But he wasn’t ready for the reaction the Sasquatch snapshots would receive. The Zillow listing has been viewed more than 400,000 times since he posted it a few days ago, he told San Francisco TV station KGO.Even better: He’s already gotten offers that exceed the $999,000 listed price.Although some other agents have told Oster they might copy his approach, he sees his Bigfoot modeling career as a one-time thing.“I think doing it again might lead to diminishing returns,” he said.RelatedCaliforniaBigfootReal Estate AgentsWeird NewszillowBefore You GoBest States For Bigfoot
