When people say you can buy anything on eBay, they’re not joking. In 2004, the five-person town of Albert, Texas as put up for sale on eBay. An insurance broker by the name of Bobby Cave scooped up the town for the cheap price of $216,000. After investing another half a million into the ghost town, Cave put it on eBay in 2007 and sold it for $2.5 million.
