TUCSON, Ariz. - Two more decommissioned Cold War missile launching facilities have entered the Arizona real estate market after one northwest of Tucson sold for more than the asking price.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Friday that a listing agent confirmed a decommissioned missile silo near Oracle Junction sold in December for $420,000 in cash.

Agents say two more have since entered the market, priced at $495,000 each.

Officials say one is north of Tucson and comes with a dozen acres of vacant land.

Officials say the other is east of Benson and includes vacant land, an access road and scenic mountain views.
