Grafton, Illinois Will Pay You to Move There – Kinda
There are a lot of towns who are trying new things to convince potential residents to move there. For example, Grafton has a program where they are more or less paying you to move there. In this case, the details are extra important here.
- Grafton, Illinois owns 26 lots which they're selling for $5,000 each.
- If you buy a lot, you have 3 years to build a home on it.
- If you can't get that done, Grafton will buy the land back for $4,000
I'm not a math genius, but that doesn't sound like the city paying you to move there. I'm not saying it's a bad deal. Getting land for cheap and having 3 years to build a home could be epic. But, when I hear that a city is paying me to move there, just pay me.
The Fox 2 Now report says this reimbursement program in Grafton originated with funds from FEMA's 1993 Great Flood Buyout program.
If you're thinking "sure, I'll move to Grafton, Illinois", the Fox 2 Now article says you need to contact Stan Gula with Dream Homes Realty at 618-806-2747. He is apparently the wing man for this new land offer.
