Mayne Island Nightmare: Selling rec property in a collapsing market.

RE: Mayne Island Nightmare: Selling rec property in a collapsing market.
No man is an island, entire of itself;
Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were.
Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Meditation #17 By John Donne from Devotions upon Emergent Occasions (1623), XVII

OMG! Skook and I are on a Mayne Island Binge!

I just looked to see what the competition is for Wilfred Klingsat’s ‘Distress Sale’ property.

At present (search date: 24 March 2014), the ‘competition’ is (drumroll):

Time share residences: 5

Vacant land (ready for your trailer or building plans according to V1007866): 36

Lot with trailer (also magnanimously called a ‘manufactured home’): 1

Lot with ‘cottage’ (maybe the trailer isn’t such a bad idea after all!): 8

Lot with partially finished structure: 2 (the ‘distress sale’ featured in this thread, priced at $539,000.00 appears on page 9 of 12 in my search for all property for sale on Mayne Island).

Actual finished house on lot: 61

Total: 113 properties for sale. Take your pick.

All this listing activity on a rustic 21-square kilometer (8.1 square mile) island according to Wikipedia. Population 900; you can find out much more on the Island’s very own website!

More than you probably ever wanted to know, but there it is. I know one thing it isn’t: Nantucket!
