What would you say if I told you I had a bridge to sell you? Well I don't, but Dickinson County where I live in Michigan does..
You may think I am joking, but you can place a min bid of only $450 on this "Private Bridge Over The Sturgeon River" in Felch, Michigan.. Imagine the awesome fishing spots to be had or maybe you can be a troll!
Description & Comments - " This parcel is 66 feet wide (east-west) and 278.3 feet north-south. It runs along Sturgeon Ln and crosses over the river. The parcel contains an aging BRIDGE that crosses the Sturgeon River and provides access to several properties. Those properties are likely holders of either an express, implied or prescriptive easement .... which means that they probably have a legal right to use the bridge, but no obligation to maintain it. A purchaser may assume the legal responsibility for its repair. "
WANT TO BUY AN OLD MINE SITE WITH DEEP SHAFTS? For a $700 min bid, you could pick up "10.65 Acres At The Pewabic Mine Location" in Iron Mountain, Michigan!
"This property is located due east of iron Mountain at the old Pewabic Mine site. That's right ... you can own your own iron mine ! Properties like this come with a certain amount of potential liability, so please be aware that the property includes a mine shaft .... This is nice wooded property with some scenic views of the panorama over Iron Mountain and Kingsford to the south. It is high and dry, and the local radio and TV station towers are just a few hundred feet to the north. There are no buildings on this property."
NO BRIDGES OR MINES, EH? ARE YOU INTO TRAINS? For only $1,500 min bid you can pick up this "Railroad Right-Of-Way" in Breitung Township!
"This parcel was a Wisconsin & Michigan railroad right-of-way. It may have been abandoned, but that is unclear. It runs east to west, and across the entire NE 1/4 of Section 5. That would start (on the east) at the end of Dawn South Lake Road, and run west to the centerline of the Section. Curiously, the tracks are still in place here, and these have usually been harvested by the railway prior to abandonment. So you may wish to confirm the location of the line and question any party with a contractual right (or easement) to use it before disturbing the infrastructure. There is substantial value to the steel track and the gravel bed. Whether you would have a right to remove and sell them is a question you will want to be sure of the answer to prior to bidding. If this is only land ownership and you don't have ownership of the actual track material, you could end up in deep poo-poo if you tried to remove them. Please make sure what you're bidding on here, folks.
This parcel may be subject to utility, road, driveway right-of-way, or other easements which could allow third parties access to the property. Easements are not extinguished by tax foreclosure and foreclosed parcels are sold subject to these preexisting rights, if any..
I'm not making this up, those are quoted words from the website.. "you could end up in deep poo-poo if you tried to remove them"?
SO YOU DON'T WANT A BRIDGE, A MINE OR EVEN TRAIN TRACKS, EH? SO WHAT ABOUT LAND UNDER A ROAD IN VULCAN??
A $600 min bid might get you a "Parcel Located Under A Street" in Vulcan, Michigan!
"This parcel is mostly or completely located UNDER Spruce Street in Vulcan. It is being sold subject to the rights of others to use that road. In other words, it's of little practical use. And that's why we have it. If there is land that is not under the road ... it would be a sliver located east of it ... where the pine trees are. We think.This parcel is too small to be practically useful under most circumstances. Many times such parcels are the result of survey or property transfer errors which create small orphaned slivers of land. These parcels are frequently too small to allow construction or any other practical use. They often have no road frontage or legal means of access. These parcels can often lead to adverse claims or encroachments by neighboring land owners which can be complicated legal issues to resolve."
I'VE GOT IT! I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED FOR ALMOST $45,000 AT RIVER POINTE PARKWAY IN KINGSFORD, MICHIGAN!
Unfinished Condo Project. 32 Incomplete Units. - "This is a sale of development rights for 32 unbuilt units (16 duplexes) at the "River Pointe" condo project in Kingsford. This is NOT a sale of "land", but instead the right to build the 16 duplex buildings that are required by the Master Deed, which you can find recorded at the County Register of Deeds office in Iron Mountain. If you'd like to have a look at the structure required by the Master Deed, there are already 5 duplex units built here that are examples. This project sits along the banks of the Menominee River, with Wisconsin right across the way. The seller reserve the right to create a deed restriction, prohibiting the "splitting" of these unbuilt units for resale prior to the physical construction and issuance of certificates of occupancy for each two unit duplex building. This would permit a successor developer the opportunity to build one at a time, but would discourage speculators from trying to "flip" condos that do not even exist."CURRENTLY THERE ARE 23 AUCTIONS LISTED JUST FROM DICKINSON COUNTY, MICHIGAN..
