A penny for a house isn't a bad deal. Neither is paying 6,000 dollars for it.

That was the winning bid on a historic Bryan house listed on Ebay. Bidding ended this week.

The winner doesn't even live in the country, but does have family in the Brazos Valley. He'll have to hire a company to move the house off the land.

12 bidders made 65 bids on the house, and if the deal doesn't go through, they say they'll be waiting. "Most of the bidders were local bidders. The runner-up bidders called me right afterwards and they were a little saddened that they didn't win, but they said if the winning bidder drops out, to contact them," said current owner Paul Torres.

More than 4,000 people logged on to the house's Ebay site during the ten days it was on the auction block. On the last day it was listed, the price jumped nearly 5,000 dollars in just 20 minutes.
