One example: the former Millstone golf course outside Greenville, S. Overgrowth shrouded rusting food and beverage kiosks.The land’s proximity to a trailer park depressed its value.Tell her that if she wants to be at “profit level” and really start bringing in money for her family, she needs a lot of products.
