Bought a condo -- in cash

Frustrated with the lack of results in the stock market, I pulled $80,000 out of stocks and did a cash purchase of a 1,000-sq. ft. office condominium that someone was desperate to sell.

Great property, great location, and this investment won't dissipate into thin air because of a euro crisis, a downgrade or some other phantom threat.
