From Michael Jackson's Neverland Foreclosure to The Cave House

— February 22, 2009 — Business
It’s been a week of strange real estate auctions; while Michael Jackson is auctioning memorabilia after the foreclosure of his Neverland Ranch, another piece of architecture, the Cave House, was put on eBay for a starting bid of $300,000 after also facing foreclosure.

Trend Hunter has featured a lot of interesting real estate trends in the turn of the economic crisis. Included in this cluster are a few of the most interesting, kicking off with the Cave House, followed by Michael Jackson’s memorabilia auction, sexy real estate window dancers and more.
