Man Bought Beautiful Villa For $9,000 Only To Find It's Really A Strip Of Grass Worth $50

Kerville Holness participated in an online auction of available properties in Broward County, Florida, whose owners had defaulted on their taxes. When he came across a stunningly beautiful villa in Tamarac, Florida, he knew he had to bid on it.

Kerville was initially very excited and very proud of himself for scoring such a deal, especially as a first-time auction bidder. He ended up with the winning bid and purchasing the villa, which was worth $177,000, for only $9,100.

What a steal, right?! Well ... not exactly.

It wasn't until the deal was done that Kerville learned he was the proud owner of not a gorgeous villa but rather a small piece of land — a 1-foot-wide by 100-foot-long strip of grass worth just $50.

According to the Sun Sentinel, "it starts at the curb where two mailboxes have been installed, goes under the wall separating the garages of two adjoining Spring Lake villas, then extends out to the back of the lot."

The shockingly bad rip-off deal left Kerville confused and panicked. "If I'm vindictive enough, I can cut right through the garage wall and the home to get to my air space, but what use would that be to me?" he told the Sun Sentinel.

Watch the video to see why officials are saying there's nothing he can do about it. He won't be getting a refund, and now he's stuck with his puny piece of land.

Kerville's story is serving as a warning to auction bidders everywhere: Always be wary of deals that seem too good to be true.
