ELLSTON, Iowa – Bargain hunters beware! A four-bedroom farmhouse in southern Iowa listed online for free comes with a catch: The new owner must move the building from the current owners' land.
Roger and Linda Dolecheck say in a Craigslist ad that the Ringgold County home will be torn down this winter if no one takes up their offer.
The Des Moines Register reports that the Dolechecks have been trying for years for sell the house where they raised their four children. The two-and-a-half-floor farmhouse is assessed at $52,700, even after the Dolechecks invested $150,000 in repairs.
It also has historic value as the home to landmark hybrid corn innovation in Depression-era Iowa.
Roger Dolecheck says he just needs to find somebody who would like to live in an old house with character.
