‘You seriously took this picture two years ago?’
‘Yep. The place is unrecognisable isn’t it.’
‘But how did you manage it?’
‘I invited investment, with a time frame.’
‘I can see that, but how come you now have a complete town, medical centre and shopping complex?’
‘Easy. My time frame was a year to eighteen months, and the stipulation was that whatever was built, had to be funded by the investor, not me. You’d be amazed at how many Big Businesses jumped at the chance to extend or develop, not to mention if things went belly up, for them it was tax deductible. Besides, there would always be someone willing to take up the reins for a song to continue with their abandoned project.’
‘Clever. How much did you originally pay for the site?’
‘Quarter of a million.’
‘And now it’s worth…………………….?
‘Ten times that, and all the lease revenue comes to me plus a percentage of their profits!’
‘Can I join in?’
‘Sure. What do you want to build and how much do you have to invest?’
