article imageThe town of Swett, South Dakota is on sale for $400,000

By Walter McDaniel     Jun 30, 2014 in Business
One man has exclusive rights to the town of Swett and is now selling it off to anyone who can match his asking price. Businessman Lance Benson is putting these holdings up to focus on his core business and you have a chance to buy them.
The city of Swett was one a moderately prosperous area that was resettled by Native Americans. In recent times the town has shrunk but many people for miles around go there to visit the local saloon and relax. The town itself has a bar, workshop, three trailers, one house and around 6.16 acres of prairie land.
Located quite a distance from many industrial areas this is not prime land for those interested in factories, etc. It joins the many other tracts of beautiful, natural land that are up for sale in South Dakota. While it may not have specific industrial uses it could be handy for those who want to create a new community of their own.
The selling of entire towns is actually a fairly common occurrence in the developed world. Disney is selling a town they made to mirror the past as well. The government also buys towns on a regular basis to use for things such as Homeland Security training. Massive real estate transactions happen with surprising frequency.
This is also open to international buyers as well. In recent times we have seen an increase in foreign buys for U.S. land as well, as the story of Investor Pham Dinh Nguyen shows us. If you have the funds then you may want to consider the possible uses of this small town for yourself.
