Love your house but not the location? Pick it up and move it.

Well I guess if you really love your house and don't like the location you could always move the house to a location you like. I first noticed these homes on Glenmore and Sarcee trail on Tuesday, a friend called me yesterday saying she saw them on HWY 549 and then this morning I saw them near the Okotoks overpass. I wonder where they're going? There's never really a bad location when it comes to real estate, I prefer to think of certain properties as locationally challenged. They just have to be priced properly.

If you decide you love your house and want to move it, no matter how big your truck is, leave it to the professionals.

Karen:  What a great idea.  Usually when I see a home being moved, it is a much older home that is being pulled out of a poopy neighborhood... so this looks really cool.  I would love to see a video of them taking the home to it's new lot, and placing it down and anchoring it.  That would be so interesting to watch.  [ ps... what a nice name you have... :) ]

Hey Karen- don't have a clue where these are heading! We often see small bungalows being relocated from inner city lots to acreages but these ones surprised me. They're two storey attached homes.

Moving houses should be a lot better today than it was years ago. I remember watching a three-story house being moved. And each day, it looks like they moved it just a few feet -- and of course, traffic had to be re-routed. But the outcome was spectacular. The house rested in the best possible place.
