Specifically, the answer to "where are the Sears kit houses located?" is found in the following list. Keep in mind that this list is based on the 300 plus homes that were identified using Sears mortgages. There are many more homes from Sears that have been identified where the builder and/or owner purchased the house from Sears without relying on a Sears-financed mortgage. Also excluded from these numbers are any houses from other kit house companies or any homes that were built and later demolished. To be included in this list, it has to be a Sears house with a Sears mortgage that is still standing today!
