Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
A bottle of soda or a house?
In a 2008 eBay battle-of-the-highest-bidder, 30-year-old Joanne Smith beat out eight other bids with her generous offer of $1.75. Back taxes were about $850 and she was responsible for yard cleanup costs. She told the local newspaper she hoped to sell it for a profit. Maybe we’ll see an eBay listing for $2 soon?
The Fiscal Times has a slideshow of eight cheapest homes in the nation.
The home in the photograph is in Saginaw, Michigan. In addition to the $1.75, she also had to pay $850 in back taxes. Photo via USA Today.
