I wonder if there are still any "plots" left. The funny thing is that some are talking of building on their plots. I guess you could put a Monopoly motel there, maybe 2 if you don't mind the cramped quarters, crime, and violence.

I would have thought that was high for Detroit real estate. You can buy houses for $15,000.

I agree (sorry to ruin your day.) Buyers need to establish that these one inch square plots extend six feet under....

Before I buy, I'd like to know if any previous owners had any liens on the property.And I need a "Godzilla right of way" clause on my deed.If my plot is in the middle of a sq. foot,,I need to have access...say
How about a tonka fire truck lane...?
What about mineral rights, you ask..? A wise inchvester should buy at least 9 sq.inches, so he can jam a garden hand shovel in the dirt and check for gold...

I still 'own' one square inch of someplace in the Ozarks. Years ago the band Black Oak Arkansas had a promotion where you could write in and get a certificate for 'One square inch of Paradise.'

I still have mine. I should go check it out one of these days to see what's been built on it.

Finally, something I can afford! I'm tired of watching Househunters and Househunters International on HGTV and hearing, "Jeff Thompson and April Has-a-Different-Last-Name have been looking for the perfect 3rd home in Sunny Aruba. They have a long wish-list, but their budget is just 1.1-1.3 million dollars." Not what I want to see in the throes of a recession (okay, let's call it what it is now--a depression).

I'll take 16 square inches for my Lincoln Log house.

Opp! the full story link has been broken. I think many people tend to invest in mobile web design in recent time. don't you think so? It's easier to get job if you know how to do with mobile web design.
