Well, that didn’t take long! Fortuna Grocery Outlet building for sale already!

With all this rain, we haven’t even made it to Fortuna to check out the new GO and here the building is for sale already! Talk about a quick flip!  Here, courtesy of LoopNet,  is the listing and while you’re  at it you can also pick up the hotel on the Riverwalk. Read about it HERE.



Our wonderful, iconic hotel on the Bay is for sale for $2,850,000.  I’ve always enjoyed sending out-of-town visitors here. Whether they complain (because it’s not pristine like new construction) or appreciate it for the great, quirky property it is, is a great test of character.  Details HERE.

You’ll notice they reference a 25% vacancy factor. I don’t think the Eagle House has ever had full-time proactive management, but if they did I’m sure they could fill more rooms.
