With so much discussion on the SEV, fair market values, etc. etc... how does one set a price on beauty? WE know the camp property has value. The state determines a "value" and the market determines a value. As a cottage owner you get the benefit and "value" of the camp property but you can't sell it. The value is in "having it".
As Mr. Meyer worked (not) to put together his "instructions" for bidding and picked a starting bid (sort of out of thin air)...all we could do is try to persuade him that he wasn't "getting it". Remember, he was supposed to go up and take a look himself? Yeah. Well, I can tell you this. When we made the last trip to the cottage to get our things, he was there. He was "getting it". Too bad, too sad, too late. He got it. Course, he couldn't have been nicer then. Compared to the other two kooks..David and his counsel? He said they were acting like little boys.
Back to the story... we packed and went north. We scrubbed, hosed down and cleaned every square inch of the place. Windows, floors, inside and out. It looked mighty nice. We watched as a number of "interested" parties made their way through. We heard from our attorney from time to time about who had requested information etc. and we tried to enjoy what we thought would be our last time there. It was a bit tough. We had one last goodbye party. The Dinner Party from Hell. It was the day the power went out in the morning and we had about 100 people coming for supper. And..it was HOT. But of course we had a great time. We love to throw parties and we are already planning one up there sometime in July. Stay tuned.
