Yup, you read the headline properly. There’s a free house for you in Chilliwack, but there’s a catch.

As stated in the article on Craiglist, “the house must be moved at the expense of the party that wishes to acquire it.” It goes on to say that the approx quote to move the 125 year old heritage house is anywhere from $48,000 – $54,000. It must also be placed on a property that can accommodate such a house.

As this property is subject to a proposed development, the house must be torn down or moved. As this house has some heritage value to the community, rather than tearing the house down, they were hoping to give it away for free.
