An Indiana couple who spent the past 20 years renovating a 1950s gymnasium into a home in Indiana received at least a $299,000 rebate.
Better than Zia? The realtor who sold it graduated from the same gym.
It was built in 1950, according to Realtor Roy Wilson of Talk to Tucker Realtors, who listed the property.
As of Friday afternoon, Wilson said the offer on the home has been accepted, but they are still working on closing. He didn’t say how much it would cost, but told USA TODAY that “it sold for at least the asking price.”
It’s not the first time Wilson has worked with Jeff and Christy Brody, the couple who own the property. He sold them in 2002 for $85,000. This year, Wilson Jim hosted 20 shows on June 30 and the third day on the market and collected four concessions.

The 3.6-acre property in the small town of Wilkinson, Indiana, was formerly a hardware store and the couple often visited to shop, Wilson said.
The couple owned an antique sign business and had previously used the building as a showroom for their signs, he said.
The gym had two classrooms attached to it, one built in 1902 and the other in 1922, he said.
“This gym and the buildings that are no longer there used to be Wilkinson High School,” he said. “(In the mid-1960s) Wilkinson merged with another school district…to become the East Hancock School System.”
Wilson said the most recent buyer never went to gymnasium but graduated from the school system he once had.
The list attracted a lot of attention last month; That’s because half of it still looks like the original gymnasium, and the other half has a kitchen area, four bedrooms and three full bathrooms.
Wilson said he has sold former school buildings, but never a gym with a home. His favorite aspect of the property is the part that remains intact.
“I graduated from that building, and I will tell you where I sat during the graduation,” he said. “The gym floor is still there … that end of the floor I was sitting on, right at the free throw line, to the right of the basket.”
