House hunting is literally the worst. Not only can the process take forever, but if you mess anything up, you might have to start all over again. So might I suggest a new approach? How about looking at a completely abandoned ghost town in the Colorado foothills?
Welcome to the town of Cabin Creek — a ghost town in Colorado that's not too far from the city of Denver.

The town is currently owned by James Johnson. Johnson bought the town in 2000 and funded the sale by selling everything he owned.

Johnson had hoped to turn the town around and make it into a destination for tourists and travelers the way it was before the Interstate was constructed.

Sadly, Johnson's dream never came to pass. Now he's trying to unload the five-acre town via Craigslist for the surprisingly affordable price of $350,000.

While Johnson actually has a number of interested buyers lined up, none of them have been able to secure financing from a bank yet. The reason for this, he says, is because of the mixed residential and commercial zoning of the town along with the dangerous conditions of the buildings.
