KA9FOX has a great classified site http://swap.qth.com/ . Personally I
always listed my home without towers to maximize the potential buyers. I
don't know of any homes with stations in the US that were sold to other hams
I'm sure that it has happened, but the odds are slim. You have one small
tower which is easy to remove. You can even do it after you find a buyer so
that you are not QRT. It is easier to find a buyer for your tower and
antenna if it is already on the ground and disassembled. Also having
someone buy and remove it may have some serious liability risks.

Questions about tower and property. I have the following set up:
80 foot Rohn 45G guyed with poly (non conductive - can't recall the
name right now) guys.
First question: if I decided to sell the tower and guys (buyer would
have to take down) what would be a reasonable asking price (about 6
years old - perfect condition)? This would include only the tower,
hardware and guys, and an 8 element Log (Cushcraft 2010) and would not
include coax or rotator. Only the tower, guys, hardware and beam. I
would sell the anchors also but would be difficult to dig up? They
are massive. The old install was done by a ham in the business to
install - Bill Simpson.
Second question: If I decided to sell my property complete with a ham
station any opinions as to where to start listing? That is, QRZ or
QST, etc. (one is free and one is expensive!). It is 3 BR home about
70 miles north of Dallas on one acre. I have not decided as yet but
can be viewed on QRZ.com picture.
I am thinking of retirement and moving to the Northwest. Any ideas
