I don't buy it. Money isn't everything. Maybe he likes the life he's living and chooses not to let others dictate how he's going to live it?

The Pig Farm is 165 acres. $60 million is not a very high price for that. He could also sell off chunks very easily anytime he needs 10 or 20 million.

Note that he can probably sell off half or more of the property with no effect on the business.

For that area, what's the average amount of homes you think can be built on 165 acres?

I had no idea he had that much property.

I stand corrected.

Around there? 1500 to 2500. Depends on the zoning they can get. At $20K profit- 30 to 50 million in PROFIT.

Seems high. I was thinking around 500-700 when you take sidewalks, common areas, concrete walls, etc into consideration.

Unfortunately not how it works. They net to the zoning number. So 10 to acre does not mean .1 acres each. It means that the tract will net 10 per acre when all is said and done. So maybe 2500SF lots.

They could run into problems on that land in that it is in Clark County and presently at 2 per acre. So they have to fight through to get a higher density zoning. In that area however I would expect no organized opposition so they may not have a lot of trouble.

That was my estimate also. 1500? Sounds like some pretty small parcels.

He actually has a little manufacturing and processing going on in there too. Not only do strip and local casinos pay him to take in the leftover buffet food(slop), he takes in slop from outside of the valley as well. Since I live down the street from the farm, I see trucks pull in and out of there from Mesquite and as far as California.

That's not even the best part...

The by-product of the casino buffet food slop boiling process results in lots of oil that is then purchased by cosmetic companies to make lotion, soap and make-up.

That's money made twice without even selling a single pig. Genius.

8 miles puts you west of I-95, south of I-515 or in the center of Nellis airforce base, you gotta be joking? Also, wind swirls up here, I don't think there's a direct wind line either. Also, there is nothing unsightly about the grounds, it looks way better than all the abandoned lots up here.
