Thirty years ago, house moving was a big business. You rarely see it anymore. Here in Texas, moving a medium size, pier and beam house a few blocks is around $15k. More for distance, plus power line obstructions and permits.
Plus you have to have a lot. Then you have to have the plumbing hookups, etc. Is the house valuable enough to warrant this?
It makes me suspicious in that if there was more profit to be had, why would the owner be giving it away? Used lumber that old is not that valuable.
Could be a deal, I’m just suspicious, that’s all.
