I've never been so vicariously excited about a friend's purchase. After blogging about it here: http://721pm.blogspot.com/2013/07/land-for-sale-small-town-usa-business.html and here: http://721pm.blogspot.com/2013/07/just-missed-it.html, my friend Jonas found the same exact lot up for sale once again. (I guess someone didn't pay.) He got it for half of the original price!
So, what's going to happen with this piece of land? Something? Nothing? I don't know. But I'm sure glad that a braver man decided to jump in and kick the ball in the right direction.
