Man Tries to Sell Not Just Home But Life on eBay
August 13, 2012
A man is offering up not just his Florida waterfront home and rental condo, but also basically all of his possessions and investments together on eBay, with the asking price of $3.5 million.
Shane Butcher decided that instead of dying owning a bunch of his investments, he wants to cash out now so he can reap the financial benefits earlier. He’s offering up a waterfront Tampa Bay home, a rental condo, three cars, kayaks, video games, his gaming business called “RU Game?” with three chains, Blu-Ray players, kitchen appliances, paintings, TVs, and more. Butcher says his homes, cars, business and everything else is all paid off in full. He says he’s looking for a fresh start.
“With $3.5 million, it’s just painless. I can go buy another house,” Butcher told Forbes. “I can go buy things, things are there. The main item for sale is the business itself, the rest I’m throwing in just to throw in.”
