It sold for $990,000 in 2012, I would offer $1,050,000.

Owned by a local executive who is most likely moving up somewhere else.

The property taxes are reasonable around here.

I do research!

Wow I thought it would cost around 3-5 million.

    It would be that much elsewhere.

    And the property taxes are about $15,000/year!

      This one will be over $3,OOO,OOO,OOO before it is won.

      Fatigue will set in and sales will collapse.

      Highly, highly, highly Unlikely!!!! Sales might plateau but certainly not fall precipitously. Remember, most tickets sold this time around were a mere $1 or $2. If it gets to that prize range those people will up it to $5 or $10 dollars. Furthermore, people won't "run out" of money for the lottery, the darn thing cost a buck to get in on the action. Worst case scenario they'll simply skip the friday night movie, skip the dinner date, give lottery tickets as gifts, have lottery parties, join big and bigger pools at work, with friends or with family etc. If and when it gets to a $1 Billion plus, i guarantee you, no such thing as fatigue. Just more and more purchases with new innovative ways of getting in on the action. Believe that!!!

          I have two questions. Who would do a blind trust? And if nobody wins Tuesday how much would it be on Friday?

            Blind Trust is a good idea but wouldn't do you any good in most States. The reason for this is because in MOST States, not all, even if a prize is claimed under a Trust, the person/trustee/beneficary's name is STILL public knowledge. It all depends on the States you're in. No winner Tuesday will certainly yield a $800-$900million range.....EASILY!!!

            Wait!!! I take that back. The Blind Trust is actually a TERRIBLE idea i think. Because its you who will have little control over the Trust i think. Remember, a  Blind Trust does not necessarily means blind to the public, it can mean blind to YOU, the beneficiary. Thread carefully my firend, they can be complicated so do your research and plan wisely for your SECOND prize win. ; ))

              We are very active in our own security out here in semi-rural Pennsylvania.

              Last evening a druggie got 1 warning shot into the ground. He was held by the neighbors until the State Police collected him.

                Someone in PA collected via trust & their name & the name of the trust was published! Mission NOT accomplished!

                  Sounds like winning could be a headache for some people with all the expectations of relatives, friends, neighbors and even strangers.  The first thing the winner might has to look into is security before even talking to a lawyer or financial planner.

                      Its already a headache now dealing with all those people and i'm broke!! LOL.. So i'll gladly take the cash and the new problems that may arise as a result. I'll trade my current problems for new ones any day. At least with those new headaches, I'll be able to eat exceptionally well, get the best healthcare, travel at will and quite comfortably, have the freedom for myself to nurish and rejuvenate by simply getting away. Trust me I'll find comfortabe ways of dealing with these suposedly new problems, i'm sure of that!!!!
