Susans Scribblings: August 2012

WOULD YOU WANT TO OWN YOUR OWN TOWN?

I remember the first time I ever heard of someone buying a town for themselves.  It was back in 1989 and it was the actress Kim Basinger who bought the town of Braselton, Georgia after she divorced Alec Baldwin.

I thought that was pretty cool back then (even though it didn't really turn out well for her)

In current times it seems there are many towns privately owned and many more are now available for sale.

From bankrupt towns, abandoned towns, towns like Buford, Wyoming population: One,  to different towns around the world

it seems everything is for sale these days!

And today, you can own a piece of history:  Custer's Last Stand - The entire historic town of Garryowen, Montana, will be auctioned off to the highest bidder on August 15.

What would you do with a town of your own?

I live in a tiny town of 5200 that seems HUGE in comparison to the above towns but it is a great place to call "Home"!  If you would like a small town experience, come to Gananoque.  Or even a small city, I can help you find the perfect place in Kingston or Brockville  . . .

Give me, Susan Emo a call if you like the idea of living in a place with history.  Not Garyowen's history, but history none the less!

 

If you're thinking about selling, I'd love to meet with you and provide a Market Analysis and go over my Marketing Plan - it is the little things that make the difference.**
