Would you like to move to the Bay area ? Yes, How does Green Bay sound ?

It sounds like a steal! At a time when the country is in an economic crisis what better time to buy up land ? The purchase of Favre’s old Green Bay home could be turned into a Graceland for Packer fans. Can I get whoop whoop ?

There’s no “for sale” sign in front of the ranch-style home at 2085 Shady Lane, at the corner of Shady Lane and Morris Avenue, but it’s listed by local real estate agency Micoley and Company for $475,000. The nearly 3,000-square-foot home includes four bedrooms and three baths, according to Micoley’s Web site.

Brown County land records indicate the home’s value at $424,900. D.L. Tynes is named the property’s owner, and tax bills are sent to a Hattiesburg, Miss., address. Tynes is Deanna Favre’s maiden name. The Favre family’s permanent home is in Hattiesburg.

Real estate agent Wade Micoley wouldn’t confirm who owns the house, but said it’s been on the market for about 48 to 72 hours.

“I really can’t get into any more than that,” he said.

The sale is one of the final pieces of the Favre retirement drama that gripped Green Bay for much of late summer.
