Investment Info:

Other other investment in Rohnert Park.

Purchase price: $27,000
Cash invested: $27,000

just under 4 acres of land in the path of progress.. when we bought it .. the land was unbuildable because of Sonoma county very strict septic system rules. And it was zoned residental.. however it was on a free way off ramp access road.. and they had just built a shopping center one block over with a Home Depot Anchor.

Then about 15 years ago One of the Vegas gambling concerns was able to lobby a local tribe to establish a casino.. 230 million for the land across from us..
