Reading the Seattle Times last Sunday I ran across an interesting article in the News section: "Not your typical U.S. surplus: posh embassies", written by Associated Press writer Matthew Lee and found the article on-line to share with you at the Boston Globe . The real estate locations sounded far away and exotic...like an adventure movie location...places like Kathmandu, Bangkok, and Jakarta...places you would expect to find James Bond or some other cloak and dagger movie spy. Very different from the Seattle Real Estate market!
Of course some of the properties are fixers having been the scene of riots or are run down and cannot be made secure for the level of terror that stalks the world today. The most expensive property "for sale" is actually a lease for 939 years remaining (of a 999 year lease) for a property in London. However, I looked at the State Department website to check out some of the properties my self and was very disappointed. I am afraid the Real Estate Marketing for the properties is nonexistent, no on-line photos, no marketing remarks...no nothing to spark an interest! Hmmm...I'd love to write the marketing for these properties!
