Speaking of insane deals on fabulous homes, a woman named Alla Wagner of Alberta, Canada is selling her home, which is valued at $1.7 million, for just $25. Seriously.
Wagner had previously put the 5,000-square-foot home on the market, but wasn’t receiving the kind of offers she was looking for. So now, she’s decided to just basically give it away.
She explained why she is selling her dream home for just $25 in a post on Facebook…
Being someone used to a cosmopolitan lifestyle, living in the country was doubtful for me, until my family visited my friend in Millarville. Straightaway, I fell in love with the rolling hills, rich vegetation and felt a sense of belonging and freedom. Every time we travelled to our friend’s property, we would drive by the beautiful pond and the new development area that mesmerized my family, so we were determined to live here.
My dream came true, and now waking up in the mornings my first sights are spectacular views from my bedroom windows – whether bright sunny days, clouds rolling across the sky, or a mysterious fog rising from the pond. I love watching flocks of geese and ducks travelling to and from the pond, seeing the open skies, starry nights, wildlife, and views of the snow packed mountains. No matter which window in the house I look out of, the view is beautiful. This area and our home is a writer’s or artist’s paradise!
Great memories of the blessed life my family has had in this home are priceless.
We love our home and would never consider putting it on the market, especially in the current turmoil that Alberta is experiencing. We had to list our house because of my poor health, which has been especially bad the last 6 months or so. Being confined to only one (upper) floor is becoming unbearable and it is taking a toll on my work and life in too many ways
