An Interesting Idea - Will It Work?

The owner of a Maine country inn valued at $905,000 has plans to give it all away to the winner of an essay contest.

Janice Sage, the owner of the Center Lovell Inn and Restaurant, said applicants must be eager to run the business and convey their qualifications in an impeccably crafted 200-word essay. Sage hopes to get at least 7,500 paid submissions by May 17. At $125 per entry, that would be enough to cover the estimated value of the 210-year-old establishment, plus an additional $20,000 for the next owner.

The hotel is located about 55 miles northwest of Portland, Maine, and offers sweeping views of New Hampshire’s snow-capped mountains.  (Details of the contest - Centre Lovell Essay Contest.)

Buy The House - Bride Comes With It

When a listing for a house in Yogyakarta, Indonesia appeared on a real estate website many people assumed it was a joke. But the home’s current owner says the ad is completely serious.
The ad reads: “Offer of the century! Buy the house and you may marry the owner (terms and conditions apply). Only for serious buyers and without negotiation.”

The 40-year-old widow and salon owner said she has had trouble finding a suitable man, having already tried to date a few times since her husband’s passing 15 years ago, but without success. After mentioning her romantic troubles to her real estate agent, the agent suggested that she include the marriage offer in her ad.

The woman said she doesn’t have any specific “terms and conditions” for her new husband/homeowner, just that he be a responsible man.
