Walking Dead town goes on sale on eBay

Grantville

(From Daily Mail) Fans of The Walking Dead series have a chance to make a killing in real estate by buying up part of a ghost town that was featured in the popular zombie show.

The former mayor of Grantville, Georgia, has put nine downtown buildings up for sale on eBay for $680,000.

Grantville was used as a setting for the popular zombie-drama during during the ‘CLEAR’ episode in season three of the show.

Jim Sells bought the properties, which feature 25,000 square feet of usable space and include commercial spaces, apartments and restaurants, during the recession.

He wants to sell the renovated buildings to someone who has experience owning commercial property.

Sells said: “The hard work has been done. We’re looking for somebody to put it all into action.”

Although $680,000 is the asking price, Sells is open to offers.

Grantville fell on hard times after the town’s cotton mill closed, but the Walking Dead has helped breathe new life back into the economy.

Sells runs the Grantville Walking Dead Tour and charges $10 per adult and $5 for kids ages five to ten.

He said: Our main industry right now is Walking Dead tourists. We have people coming from all over the world because of The Walking Dead. That’s paying the bills downtown.”
