$1M to Move?

Money can buy a lot of things, but not this lady:

Macefield refused to sell to developers her little old house where she has lived since 1966, forcing developers to build an entire five-story project, which includes a grocery store, fitness club and parking garage, around her.

She was offered $1 million to leave. She turned it down flat.

“I don’t want to move. I don’t need the money. Money doesn’t mean anything,” she said last week.

I’m not aware of anything like that happening in Portland but there was this one in China: 26china_600_2

  1. I’ve heard of situations like this. One from a long time ago, where a man DID want the money, just thought they’d finally offer him the world to sell. He waited and waited while his neighbors got theirs and ran. They eventually told him to keep his run-down home and they built a fence around their property boxing him in. He’s in the middle of a commercial/industrial zone and if he tries to sell now, nobody will want it.

  2. Any chance of an early peek at the Sept. MLS numbers?

  3. I get RMLS Market Action emailed to me when it “hits the streets.” Last month it was on the 18th for the previous month. I usually post about it the day or day after I get it.
