There are a lot of unusual properties that are put up for sale, and recently a small town was sold on the eBay website. This town is located in Washington in the United States. It was first established in 1898 when the Gold Rush hit the area and has been there ever since. Now one person owns it all including a log cabin that is 100 years old, a four bedroom ranch, a gas station with a restaurant and now one person also owns the zip code..
When it was sold, it was the second time that the town had been put up for sale. It was previously being offered for $1.1 million US, but it recently sold for only $370,601 US in April. The town was not listed as a distressed property since businesses are being leased for approximately $3000 monthly. It also has a great location close to Whistler BC in Canada.
