Florida Town Accidentally Sells Its Water Tower For $55,000

The town of Brooksville, Florida made a slight mistake with a recent property deal – accidentally selling off the town’s water tower for $55,000.

It started when local business owner Bobby Read offered to buy a municipal building at the base of the tower, with plans to turn it into an athletic training studio.

But after the deal was done, Read and the City Council realized that the water tower itself was considered part of the property and now belonged to Read. After about a week of technically owning the city’s water supply, Read sold it back – for just $10.

Ever buy something only to realize you got a better deal than anticipated? Ever get a worse deal?
