A New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal.

The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15yrs.; the owner and wife both had died, and there were no heirs.

The house was sold to pay taxes.

There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property anyway......so, nobody made an offer on the place.


The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property's worth, moved in, and set about to tear in to the barn.......curiosity was killing him.

So, he and his wife bought a generator, and a couple of grinders.......and cut thru the welds.

What was in the barn...............?


Go to; www.intuh.net/barnfinds/afa70.htm and start wishing it you had bought the place.

That totally blows my mind!! That would be like most of us hitting the lottery. Just in the condition they sit in right there I bet he could easily pay out what ever he paid for the house and property many times over. Some of those only need a little clean up work and they would bring some BIG $$$$$ Kahunas!!!

that would be so awsome to find that. like Larkin said, would pay off for him in the long run to sell some and keep some and still never touch his retirement fund.

The wife and I looked at buying that place before we moved here.
I took a peek in there, I could not tell exactly how many were in there, but I could tell it was alot.
I did not really feel like dusting them all off, having them appraised, insurance and all that (I am sure you guys understand) so we just passed on it and moved in here.

I stand by my decision. :))
