FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida — A South Florida man thought he snagged a deal when he paid $9,100 (about P400,000) in an online auction for what he thought was a villa. What he got was a 1-foot-by-100-foot (0.3 meters by 30 meters) strip of land.

The land, valued at only $50 (about P2,000), starts on a curb and goes under a wall separating two villas in the Spring Lake community and then out to the back of the lot.


An official told the Sun-Sentinel that there is not a lot Kerville Holness can do about his purchase.


Holness said he was deceived. He added that the property appraiser photos linked to the auction site showed the villa being on the parcel he made a bid on

But the newspaper says the appraiser’s site and information on the county’s tax site show no building value. HM/JB
