City sells $43 house, may save thou­sands in deal

Waterloo Region Record - - WORLD -

A city in Ne­braska has sold a house for only $43. But that may turn into a bar­gain for lo­cal tax­pay­ers. The Lin­coln Jour­nal Star re­ports the city of Lin­coln paid $675,000 for land that will be used for a new fire sta­tion. As­sis­tant Fire Chief Pat Borer says a house on the prop­erty was re­cently sold through an on­line auc­tion for $43. The buyer plans to move the house to an­other town, which means the city won’t have to knock it down to make room for the new fire sta­tion. Borer says that will save Lin­coln thou­sands of dol­lars in de­mo­li­tion costs.
