$300K investment = $29.7M profit

7 Replies

Check out this video on Yahoo about two guys that paid $300K to buy a house to flip. Turns out the garage was filled with artwork worth $30M. Guess I need to be more careful what I throw away when trashing out a house!

Wow! The oldest thing I found was a local paper from 1966.

This is like the time I found an old beer can from the 80's, only it wasn't worth millions, and instead of getting it appraised, one of the laborers drank some of it and threw it out...

I found some Playboys where the girls still wore a little something.

Well I've found roaches!!! Sorry nothing I've found can even compare to the beer from the 80's let alone a cache of artwork.

I found two rusted out water heaters and got $12.50 at the recycling center!!

I found were the previous person cut all the circuit wires behind the breakers in the panel, no value though.

i found a hornets nest behind the kitchen window mullion :)
i sure hope that they contacted the sellers and gave them back a good portion of the profits they made? that would be the honest thing to do i think
