School for sale: This university and surrounding property is available in B.C.

VANCOUVER —
Real estate is not an uncommon topic in B.C., and the pricier properties come with everything from ocean views to elevators.

But it’s not often these listings come with a university campus.

Colliers International is selling just that. The 55-acre property that includes the Quest University campus is now for sale.

The school and sports centre take up about 21 acres of the property.

Ideally, the school hopes for offers to sell the development lands around the campus, but the listing says Quest University would consider a sale that includes a long-term lease back for continued use.

The liberal arts and science school that opened in 2007 was forced to seek court protection in February after being unable to pay its debts.

Other parts of the original site have already been sold off or developed.

The land is located in Squamish, B.C., a town about 65 kilometres north

Interested in a foreclosure sale property? It can generate a bidding war and is likely for sale ‘as is’: Ask Joe

I recently came across an ad for a property that’s for sale saying, “power of sale.” How does this differ from a traditional home sale?

Property sales due to lender foreclosure are often also referred to as a distress bank sale, or a power of sale.

A foreclosure sale is a method available to lenders, banks and non-traditional lenders to cover the unpaid mortgage. In foreclosure proceedings, the property is not being sold by the owner — rather, it is the mortgage lender that has taken action to sell the property.

In the case of a property being sold due to foreclosure, the lender may become the owner of the property and in that case may retain any profit realized from its sale. Lenders have an interest in recovering the amounts owed to them under the terms of a mortgage.

A significant difference between a foreclosure sale and a traditional

Sunshine Coast nudist retreat in Noosa goes up for sale

The owner of a Sunshine Coast nudist retreat has bared all as he prepares to sell his beloved piece of paradise – and so have his real estate agents.

Rainer Mueckenberger, 71, who has been a practising nudist since he was a teenager, is finally putting the controversial Noosa Edge Nudist Retreat on the market, The Courier-Mail reports.

The 2.5-acre property and business in the Noosa hinterland, surrounded by a seven-foot fence to ensure guests’ privacy, comes complete with BDSM rooms and offers courses on bondage.

One room dubbed The Cave features voice-activated lights, a giant bubble bath and ropes, handles and oils.

“Here, everything is confidential. It’s safe, secure and private,” the German businessman told the paper. “Whatever you want to do here you can, as long as it is adult consenting activities.”

Mr Mueckenberger was tight-lipped on his clientele but hinted there may have been the odd famous

Embattled video gambling owner was in line for $2.5 million, taxpayer-funded windfall by flipping land. Now it’s off the table.

Tinley Park has not fared well in its dealings with video gambling operator Rick Heidner over the last year.

Land at the northeast corner of Harlem Avenue and Vollmer Road in unincorporated Rich Township is seen on Sept. 30, 2020.

First, the southwest suburb signed onto Heidner’s plan to build a horse racing track and casino on state-owned land, only to have Gov. J.B. Pritzker derail the project after a Tribune investigation revealed Heidner’s long-standing business ties to people connected to organized crime.

Now, the Tribune has learned that Tinley Park officials have been secretly negotiating a real estate deal that would provide Heidner a $2.5 million windfall on land he purchased less than a year ago as a possible alternate casino site.

Under the proposal, Tinley Park was prepared to pay $7.5 million for 114 acres — about $2 million more

Southwest Florida Military Museum & Library closing in Cape Coral

| Fort Myers News-Press

After 11 years, the Southwest Florida Military Museum & Library will close its doors Wednesday in Cape Coral.

“It’s just the end of the road,” said founder and CEO Ralph Santillo. “That’s it.”

The closure comes after a financial dispute with the museum’s former business partner, which owns the building and had wanted the museum to pay $5,000 a month in rent, which would go up to $8,000 next year. Until recently, the museum wasn’t required to pay rent at all.

The other option: Buy the building for $1.8 million — money the museum’s leaders say they don’t have.

Santillo and the museum’s board of directors tried raising the money earlier this year, but only received about $6,500 through a GoFundMe page and other donations.

“It was never enough to really make a dent,” Santillo said. “We had to really face reality that we’re

How Bruce Kenan sued for a tax bargain on his Skaneateles Lake homes; “a slap in everybody else’s face”

In 2018, Skaneateles town officials raised the property tax assessment on Destiny USA partner Bruce Kenan’s two lakefront mansions to $7 million.

Unhappy with that, Kenan went to court and argued that was too high, that they really should be valued at $2.7 million. They settled somewhere in the middle: $4.7 million.

Then, less than a year later, Kenan put the properties up for sale.

Kenan’s asking price? $8.4 million.

That’s three times the amount he argued in court they were worth.

The Kenans are like other wealthy landowners in New York who use their money and lawyers to negotiate more favorable tax bills, town Assessor Michael Maxwell said.

Maxwell said he sees it again and again in Skaneateles and in Lake George, a ritzy Adirondack town where he is also a part-time assessor.

“The whole thing to me is just a slap in everybody else’s face,” Maxwell said.

Leading off for Mets new owner Steve Cohen: a deal to buy SNY

Billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen, who closed on a deal to buy the New York Mets on Monday, has one more item on his shopping list: SNY, the cable television home of the franchise.

Fox Business Network’s Charles Gasparino reports “discussions about his possible purchase of @SNYtv will likely occur after the owners vote in November.”

Sportico, which first broke the news that Cohen closed on the Mets, reports his purchase of the club did not include the TV network.

While financial terms of the agreement haven’t been disclosed, two people with knowledge of the deal have said the sale values the team at about $2.42 billion. That would make it the most paid for an MLB franchise, topping the $2.15 billion paid for the Los Angeles Dodgers and surrounding real
