A Wee Piece of Paradise

April 29, 1999|BOOTH MOORE

As you grow older, it makes smart business sense to invest in property. But who has the money for a beachfront lot in paradise? Maui Buy the Inch makes that dream a reality. The online business at http://www.aloha-mall.com/buy-maui/ sells land on the Hawaiian island for just $15.99.

Per square inch.

Each bit of land comes with an official certificate of deed, personalized with the owner's name and individual number. A grid map to locate your piece of the planet, a picture of the property and visitation rights are included.

It makes a unique and affordable novelty gift, even for that person who has everything--except land on Maui. Or, buy a square inch for yourself and brag that you're going to Maui to inspect your property. Then visit your inch and have a photo taken. And don't worry about paying taxes on the land. Maui Buy the Inch has established a perpetual trust fund to pay taxes and maintain the land. Where else can you own a piece of property and have no expenses?

Only in your dreams.
