The backpacker killer Ivan Milat's home at the time of his 1994 arrest, in quiet Cinnabar St, Eagle Vale, hit the market earlier this month, then became big news on the weekend.

By this morning the listing had been pulled briefly from websites as the gutted owner tweaked the words to remove the street address.

They hope it won't be now difficult to sell the four bedroom brick home with its dark past.

It last sold in 2006 at $386,000 having been sold by the Milat family in 1995 at $160,000.

It was priced at $685,000 to $715,000 through Century 21 Premier Reality.

Milat was convicted of the murders of seven backpackers in 1996 after their bodies were found in the Belangalo State Forest, near Berrima in 1992 and 1993.

Milat is serving seven consecutive life sentences in Goulburn super-maximum security prison.

The special operations police arrested him at the home in 1994.

Ivan Milat bought in 1992 with his sister Shirley Soire for $50,000, with the siblings selling it in 1995 at $160,000.

Century 21 Premier Reality agent Susan Parkes told The Sunday Telegraph that prospective buyer feedback was that “it’s a lovely home."
