Would You Buy “The Walking Dead” Town?
It takes more than braaaaains to make a good real estate investment, and fans of AMC's “The Walking Dead” were excited to see one of the biggest fandom investments of all time. The town featured on the popular show was recently listed for sale on eBay! As the location where "The Walking Dead" filmed episodes of its third season, the town of Grantville, Georgia holds a special place in the heart of fans and has been drawing Walking Dead tourists since the episode originally aired.
Jim Sells, the former mayor of Grantville, Georgia, is selling nine buildings in the town's downtown on eBay for $680,000. That's right, fans. For a starting bid on eBay of $680,000 Sells is offering one lucky bidder the chance to own 34,000 square feet of usable downtown space, including nine buildings: a pharmacy, restaurant, a pub, a pizza place, loft apartments and more. The annual property tax for the 34,000 square feet of real estate is $4,524, according to the listing, and the new owner would receive $6,500 a month in rentals right out of the gate. Films like Kevin Costner's "The War" (1994) "Lawless," with Shia LeBeouf (2012), "Broken Bridges"(2006), and "Dumb and Dumber To"(2014) were also shot in the small town.
No one's made an offer yet on the little town in rural Georgia, but several future bookings are in the works, including “83 Days" starring Danny Glover and a sequel to "The Ring." Location fees and future production opportunities in addition to the income received from 45 percent of the current tenants could prove profitable to the town's new owner. $680,000 is a killer deal for the right buyer.
