Man Purchases “Villa” For 9K But It Turns Out To Be A Strip Of Grass

A Florida man is now stuck with a patch of grass after believing he bought a villa for $9,100.

The Daily Mail reports Keville Holness purchased the “villa” through an online auction for Broward County properties that defaulted on their taxes. After winning the bid, he discovered that he purchased a one-foot-wide, 100-foot-long strip of grass that was worth $50. Although he was ripped off, state officials say that Holness will not receive a refund despite him being a first-time bidder.

‘It’s deception. There was no demarcation to show it’s just a line going through the [villa duplex], even though they have the tools to show that. If I’m vindictive enough, I can cut right through the garage wall and the home to get to my air space, but what use would that be to me.”
