Man In Ohio Is Giving Away A Free House. Wanna Know What The Catch Is?
There's a man in Ohio who wants to give away his house. But there is one big catch.
It's in Bellevue, about 45 miles southeast of Toledo, and whoever takes it will have to get it out of there.
Mike Bassett's house is a big one. It's 3,600 square feet, with a fireplace, built-in cabinets, a bay window, two full bathrooms and walk-in closets. He estimates it's worth between $125,000 and $150,000, not including the land on which it sits.
One woman offered to buy it for $200,000, if Bassett would leave it in its place. But he said no. And, if he doesn't find a taker by July 1, he said he will raze the structure.
Bassett said he needs more parking for the supermarket and gas station he owns next door.
It's estimated moving the house could cost $50,000 to $80,000, depending on where it's going.
