Very Pricy Real Estate

Joining a growing number of people who are selling their burial plots for some extra income, Elsie Poncher is auctioning her late husband’s crypt on eBay, hoping to use the proceeds to pay off the $1.6 million mortgage on her house in Beverly Hills. As NPR reports, Poncher has an advantage over most grave sellers: the crypt she’s selling is above Marilyn Monroe‘s. The original winning bid for $4.6 million fell through, but the runner-up bid will likely be in the multi-million neighborhood. [%comments]
