asking $35,000

For Sale
Next door to me, right across from the river. Said to be in decent shape. Owned by a Michigan couple now too old to come down. Very large yard. Taxes @ $60/ year. Not an investment property. I have a feeling they'd take less to off-load it. (Good luck with that! On the other hand, I was sucker enough to buy here. Fortunately the carrying costs are minimal, because I might have some difficulty selling. Though I could easily rent for, say, $150 a month. At that point I could recoup my investment in 12 years or so. . .)
  A fair number of people have suggested I import my friends to repopulate Thomasville, which seems to be losing faster than it's gaining. Don't all clamor for this place at once.

What's the interior like?

Haven't been inside, but I'm told it's in good shape. Of course, I have to consider the source: The owner of the dump immediately next to me.
It looks big, too.

PS Bill says that inside is the original log cabin that the rest of the house was built around. Pretty cool!

Instead of you looking for a place in Cianciville, what about Cianciville moving next door here?
