Auction company J.P. King opened the auction of Duane Hagadone's old residence on Thursday afternoon, and 20 minutes after 2 p.m., the auction ended.
Two registered bidders were interested in the property, at 3155 E. Harrison, on 15 acres of Stanley Hill.
Neither bidder came up to the reserve price of $7.5 million. Look for a story later this evening on Spokesman.com that fills in some of the blanks.
Perhaps the bidders were turned off by some of the glaring inadequacies of Mr. Hagadone's home on the hill. Such as: No built-in vacuum system; no trash compactor (the shame); no air purifier (admittedly not needed in these parts); and no sauna.
No doubt this fine property has other stuff, such as a tennis court, helicopter pad, pool tables and what have you. But no sauna, no trash compactor? It's no wonder Mr. Hagadone shut the place down and built a nice, big house along the lake.
That was a no-brainer.
We love any decent web visualization that explains interesting trends or developments. This map, developed for Forbes.com, nicely illustrates the movement of U.S. residents to and from different areas of the country during 2008.
The link is here.
The map takes some time to load initially.
By clicking on the county you want, the resulting black or red lines illustrate the relative flow of population, to or from that location.
Click, for instance, on Kootenai County to see where people there have moved from.
My only quibble is that it's not fully up-to-date. It would be even better to have a data map for the years 2007-2010.
McGraw-Hill Construction just published these numbers for construction in Spokane and Kootenai counties during September.
For Spokane, the most obvious big leap in in residential construction, comparing this past September to the same month of 2009. Two other major building trends are evident: Even with Spokane having a 34 percent year-over-year gain in residential building this past month, Kootenai County shows more robust construction in that sector.
And nonresidential buldings (which are basically all commercial, manufacturing or school-related projects) continue lagging along. It’s clear the abundant supply of office vacancies plays a key role in holding down nonresidential construction.
