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:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Daily Mail:

The purchasing and selling of private property was legalized by President Raul Castro in Cuba last November in a bid to keep the struggling Communist state afloat.

Only citizens and permanent residents are allowed to buy properties in the Communist country but many Cuban exiles in America are entering the property markets through friends and family on the island – bumping up property prices.

Reform: Cubans can now buy and sell real estate for the first time in more than 50 years – but many still won’t be able to afford that option

Now many homes in Havana are being sold at $250 per square meter – 12 times the average monthly wage of $20.

One family, Yoel Cruz and his father are selling their three bedroomed house for $22,000, more than a thousand times their monthly income of $19.

Mr Cruz told The Times: ‘It’s incredible. In Cuba incomes are very low and house prices are very high.

For those of us who don’t speak the metric system, $250 per square meter equals about $25 per square foot.
