We’re Looking For A Home…

No, we are not going to stop living in our trailer and working at wonderful places like the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. But with the prices of real estate what they are right now, we would be crazy not to buy a house if we find the perfect one.

So, what is the perfect home for the FabGrandma? I am looking for a little white frame house, with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and 1.5 to 5 acres, out in the country. A sweet little grandma house. One with a yard big enough to park our 34′ trailer in while we’re there. Something like this. Or this. Or this.

We want something ready to move into, no fixer uppers for us, please! We are looking in the west Georgia, east Alabama area, from roughly Franklin, Georgia, to Lineville, Alabama to Anniston, Alabama to Rome, Georgia. Roughly the area outlined in blue on this map:

That is a pretty big area, I know, but we don’t want to limit ourselves to one place and miss out on a good opportunity. We do like the Franklin area, though it is not the only area we want. If anyone out there reading this knows of a nice little place that fits the descripition, and is under $40,000, let me know! We could wind up being neighbors for the winter.

  1. Sally in WA says:

    Wow, don't move to the Seattle area! Even with prices dropping, it is still very expensive around here. I like the house in Grantsville. I think because of the kitchen.

    Here I want to sell our house and live in a fifth wheel. 🙂

    Good luck with your search.

  2. I like the first one, looks the most farmhouse like.

  3. Sally: I like that kitchen too.

    Gaelyn: I love that first one! It is exactly what I am looking for. All it needs is a white picket fence.

  4. I can't believe how cheap those places are. Nothing like that here.

  5. wow I can't believe you can find a house for that great price. I like 1 and 2

  6. Wow! Yeah, that would be a great price. I keep hearing how the housing price bubble has burst, blah, blah, blah. But you wouldn't know it around here as not much has changed and things don't seem to be moving on the market. I do hope you find a place though. Sounds like a good idea to have a winter place and at that price, who could resist?

    oh i wish there were sweet homes like these under $40k in my neck of the woods!

  8. I vote for Franklin GA….I have family there in Heard Co. Wish I had a piece of land there. My ancestors all lived in and around that area for the last two hundred years.
