The four-bedroom, two-bath East Meadow home where convicted serial killer Joel Rifkin used to live has gone on the market for $424,500.

The 1952 expanded ranch is on a 61-foot-by-109-foot property and has hardwood floors.

Howard Kaminowitz, listing agent for Century 21 Laffey Associates, has marketed the property as "a handyman's special."

Rifkin told police he killed 17 women, but was convicted of murdering nine. He is serving several life sentences in upstate New York.

His mother, Jeanne, recently died.

Rifkin stored one of his victim's bodies in the one-car garage. Other evidence was recovered from Rifkin's bedroom and the basement, where prosecutors said he murdered some of the victims.

One of the photos on the real estate site is of a room with old newspapers on the bed. During the investigation into his crimes, police removed hundreds of newspaper articles dealing with serial murderers and Long Island crimes. There also is a photo on the site of the basement.
