Bristol Palin, the 20-year-old Dancing with the Stars contestant and daughter of John McCain’s former running mate Sarah Palin, reportedly bought a five-bedroom, 3900 square foot house in Maricopa, Arizona.
The home purchase in Maricopa, a city that is just south of Phoenix, has everyone wondering if the Palin family will be making a move to the Southwest. The family, who currently live in Alaska, have not commented about the potential move, but Maricopa’s vice mayor Edward Farrell is speaking about it.
Farrell says he gave Palin’s father, Todd Palin, a tour of Maricopa earlier this year.
“I left the meeting thinking that maybe he and Sarah were looking for a place to live,” Farrell says.
The house Palin purchased for $172,000 cash is a brown stucco house in the Cobblestone Farms development, which is the same neighborhood Mayor Farrell lives in.
Maricopa is far from a glamorous city, but Maricopa Mayor Farrell says, “It’s not about glitz and glamour, but about quality of life. I think she bought in the best neighborhood that Maricopa has to offer.”
