Free Land Offers ? Are Things That Bad ?

Hi All,
   Welcome to the first day of December, and the Holiday Season. It sounds like a cliche, but I cannot believe how fast the year went buy!

   Well, it had to happen eventually; things have been so bad, that there are now 7 towns that are offering land for free (Yes, you heard me...for Free !). Colleen Kane from CNBC.com put out an article titled, "7 Towns Where Land is Free", and it lists the 7 cities as Marne, Iowa, New Richland, MN, Kansas (multiple towns !), Beatrice, NE, Muskegon, MI, Curtis, NE, and Camden, ME (I've attended the "Lobster Festival" in Camden, and it is gorgeous!).

   You know, if we spoke about free land just a few years back, you might have insisted I ought to be locked away for speaking such falsehoods, but this is real, folks !

   In keeping with the topic of tough-times, the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices were released yesterday, and the figures showed this U.S. National Home Price Index drop 2% in Q3 of this year, and 1.5% off from their levels from a year-earlier. Thus the prospect of potentially more free land offers.

   What are your thoughts on these "Free land" offers. Do you know of any other towns that should be offering free land to help their waning population and decreasing land and property values? Please chime in and let us know.

Have a Great Day, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !
