Sotheby’s lists entire town

This one isn’t in Oakland County.  It’s not even in Michigan.  Still, we think it falls under the category of interesting real estate stories, so we are writing about it today.

Albert, Texas is for sale and it could be yours for $2.5 million. The Albert Texas web site says the population is 4, but I have read conflicting articles that say nobody lives there (which I find more believable).   Be sure to check out the photos of smiling faces on their site.  Sure makes it look like a vibrant place.

For your $2.5 million, you will get 13 acres,  a 100 year old dance hall, a goat pin (I think that is a corral), a fruit stand and an ice house.

If you buy it, let us know.  We will come visit.

    pMore often than not, you’re not tiaklng about those numbers. You’re tiaklng about an agent selling 30 houses per year in the business for a long time, or an agent in their first couple years with 3-5 deals per year. Most sellers want the person with the most experience. If you’re in your first couple years, and feel like your experience is costing you deals, find a “Mentor” in your office that will let you use his name and experience. Tell your sellers that you work closely with them. It works./p
