‘Walking Dead’ Town for Sale on eBay

Who knew a zombie infestation could reinvigorate the real estate market? At least, that’s the hope behind the current eBay sale of nine buildings in Grantville, Ga., a town made famous by AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

Grantville graced small screens as the setting for the season three episode “Clear,” which saw Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) scouring the town for weapons before running into old ally Morgan (Lennie James). The town’s eBay posting also purports that “three movies just signed up to film in Grantville.”

The bidding for the downtown buildings begins at $680,000. According to CNN, Granville’s former mayor Jim Sells acquired the property in a foreclosure deal four years ago.

“It’s a great picturesque little town,” Sells told CNN. “This is a bargain price.”

The eBay sale is set to end March 26.

Atlanta’s boom in film tourism is the most recent example of a growing interest in visiting filming locations. Small towns across the U.S. have become unlikely tourist destinations, such as Forks, Wash., thanks to its role in the “Twilight” series.

Season five of “The Walking Dead” continues on AMC Sundays at 9 p.m.
