Bristol Palin -- The House that 'Dancing' Built

12/27/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here it is ... the $172,000 Arizona home that Bristol Palin just HAD to have .... the one she paid for with  straight CASH, homie!

Palin's 3,900 square foot home -- which boasts 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a 3 car garage -- is located in Maricopa, AZ.

As we previously reported, Bristol has been telling friends she's thinking about enrolling in college classes out in the desert ... and so far, it seems the likely choice is Arizona State.

Go Devils.

As reported by John Faherty of The Arizona Republic on 12-24-10:

Bristol Palin, 20-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, has bought a home in Maricopa, an outlying Valley suburb in Pinal County.

Aside from the celebrity buyer, the political family and Dancing With the Stars, the purchase of the five-bedroom house represents a typical real-estate saga in Arizona.

Public records show the home was built in 2006 and bought for $329,560.... It went into foreclosure in January of this year. The home was then purchased in May for $137,200 by Michael and Cynthia Smith, a couple from North Dakota, as an investment.

They fixed it up and put it back on the market.
Bristol Palin bought it this month for $172,000 in cash.

Sarah Palin has been a frequent visitor to Arizona since she ran for vice president on a ticket with Sen. John McCain in 2008.

The Arizona Republic could not reach Bristol Palin to ask whether she plans to become a young snowbird or a full-time Arizonan.

"I'm not sure why she wanted to buy that home, but we are real happy for her," said Michael Smith, 55.

"She seems like a nice girl. We're excited for her."

What is wrong with you mentally ill posters..$172k is chump change "Free and Clear" - no burden to banks or taxpayers. I couldn't even by a rat infested condo here for that w/extreme assoc. dues and special assessments to compensate the fund from property managers with payouts and embezzlement with nothing more than a slap on so she did great..let her be and quit with the chinney jokes..excess fat can vanish, lame attitudes and hatred are a bit tougher.

Maricopa is Maricopa County, it covers a huge range of Arizona. The house is probably in Tempe. Just FYI.

It takes MORE than "just thinking" to make college happen. And that could be the roadblock for Bristol's brain.

Hey @ ifuseekamy (we don't) or currently #78 - want to eliminate her breeding..take a look at yourself..and promote this concept to all the ILLEGALS kidnappers, murderers, rapist, home invasion, free loading, multiply like rats invaders..this should be a focus..they are a burden to the average taxpayer, Little Bristol has done right and will not subject us to the breeders of this land with handouts at our expense..what don't you get Amy - how many f'in kids do you have?? and how much are YOU costing us????? Think twice knucklehead..post your name and address so we can investigate your welfare or State claim..NO MORE..stand up or get out..Time to change the State of CA. If I was in charge - 75% of freeloaders would be cut..the budget would be in order.

Are you serious, yikes?? Arizona State isn't Harvard, it's a four year party with a few classes mixed in to allow the students time to sober up. Bristol Palin will be friggin' valedictorian at that place if she just shows up for most of her classes.

Truth    

The best thing about the Palins is how they make liberals and whiny gays cry.

Every single person here bashing on Sarah Palin sounds like a mentally inferior highschool drop-out. Morons.

As for the house, good for Bristol and she was smart to pay cash for it. Except for the fact that it is an ugly charmless home, at least from the outside. I cannot understand how people can't see how plain old ugly a house looks when all you can see are garage doors on the front of it. It's just bad architectural design.

Remember this is Pheonix, so hope she turned on the taps to make sure that the house comes with the water hooked up.
