Just when you think the train is off the track for good, America begins to correct itself.
We are so blessed to have the conveniences of the internet and social media, the wonderful experience of instantly communicating with family, and business associates, and sharing our thoughts and ideas with others.
Then, after a few years, we discovered that this wonderful social media was not only changing our comments but in many cases shadowbanning our message entirely because it didn’t fit their ideology. In other words, they became the dictator. We watched with disbelief how they took control of the news feeds in America. My personal belief is they were responsible for the outcome of the most corrupt election we have ever had!
Now comes the correction that could only happen in America! One man, Elon Musk, proposes writing a check for $44 billion to buy Twitter and protect free speech. Money, I might add, that he earned. So perhaps we can have a free exchange of ideas without interference from the dictatorial staff going forward. In other words, he wants to play by the rules America was founded on that are based on free and open debate.
The reaction of the Twitter staff says it all — they are beside themselves.
They are no longer going to be able to put out their left-wing ideas or continue the perpetuation of criminal activity, disrespect of law enforcement, and the list goes on.
We can all be thankful for what ELON MUSK HAS DONE TO PUT US BACK ON TRACK. We are hopeful his promises of free speech are realized. I can’t wait to see how all of this comes out.
But I digress. I need to get back to our topic, and that is the sale of real estate at auction. We will be selling a number of properties across America this summer, so keep an eye on our website: higgenbotham.com.
I just talked to one of our out-of-state associates, and he says the farmland market is still crazy, with prices in the $10,000-to-$15,000 range per acre. Farms that have never been sold in the last century are being sold.
If you have real estate for sale, give us a call! We will do the work, answer your questions, and get you top dollar with no commission charge to the seller. My recommendation is if you have real estate and are considering selling, now is the time to pull the trigger! Tomorrow is not guaranteed, nor is today!
See you at the auction.
