If you are a sad single, please close this tab and go sit alone in the corner. Couples? Keep reading—you found love, the greatest thing on earth, and for that you shall be further rewarded.
We kind of feel like there are still some singles reading. Seriously, there is nothing for you here... or anywhere else. You probably won't find love, but if you do feel free to come back at that time.
Okay lovebirds, listen up: Newark, New Jersey is offering up a special land sale on Valentine's Day (specifically, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.) at Newark City Hall (920 Broad Street).
"In the spirit of St. Valentine’s Day, we are doing a sale of city lots exclusively to COUPLES [emphasis theirs]. Transforming non-tax producing city owned lots to occupied, tax producing properties with new homes built on them. We will be selling 100 lots at $1,000 a lot. This sale is NOT for developers or investors. The sale is exclusively for couples who are looking to live in Newark."
Here's a map of the open lots:
You can find all of their rules here, but note this will be run on a "first come, first served” basis, and buyers will be required to make a $500 down payment. Buyers must also complete construction within 18 months of closing. While single folks are being shunned, at least they're including both straight and LGBT couples. [via Brick Underground]
