I did a search and didn't see this being discussed (apologies if it's already come up!), but wanted to hear BP thoughts on this San Francisco nightmare: http://www.sfchronicle.com/bayarea/matier-ross/art...
I just heard about this on the radio this morning. I had no idea that a street could be privately owned when it connected multiple parcels with different owners (as it appears this does). Very educational read to me as a newbie. Super curious to see what ends up happening in this story.
For those that invest in tax liens, do you see streets come up often (or ever)? Is it hard to extract value from owning a street? The article mentions the possibility of charging for parking, but I imagine the return would be quite low...? So.many.questions.
Curious to hear how the pros here would look at this type of opportunity.

@Jana Cain I found the BP discussion link on this topic. You can read through all the posts to see how this is being played out and what people on BP are saying:
I invest in Tax Liens in Arizona and streets come up quite often. There was just a portion of a street in Sedona, AZ that was in last year's tax lien sale.
Thanks for the link, Jerry! My search skills on BP aren't the greatest (I'm either too specific or too broad). 😊
Below is the update.
More update for you. Interest to see where it will lead to.
@Tom Yung Thanks so much, Tom! I heard about this on the radio yesterday but hadn't looked up any articles yet. I appreciate it!
