Friday's Fences #113

Some nearby land was up for auction and J and I decided to go on the off chance that maybe it would go cheap and we would be there to snatch is up.  
 This beautiful white fence goes with the neighboring property.
 It really is a pretty area.
This is a view of the farm for sale, 100 acres no real buildings, no cross fencing, no improvements, sold in one track.
 It was pouring down rain with the wind blowing and no tent set up.   J's clothes pretty much acted like a sponge.  He was soaked to the skin by the time we got home.  Umbrellas were getting blown inside out and one man was wearing a trash bag.
It was a court ordered sale where 2 brothers were fighting so the sheriff was there too.  It turned out that the only bidders were the 2 brothers bidding against themselves.  We left after an hour when the price was up to $540,000 and they were bidding in $100 increments.   We heard it eventually brought $640,000.  The only real winners here were the auctioneer and the lawyers.   Of course, at those prices maybe we should be thinking more about selling than buying.

It is amazing what property goes for these days! It is a beautiful place, though.

That is a lot of money. Can't image two brothers bidding against one another.
