Florida man refuses $600M
Echoing the Pixar movie “Up,” a Florida man is refusing to sell his cherished family home even as it’s swallowed by a massive $600 million commercial development.
Orlando Capote told CBS4 News in Miami that his father bought the humble single-family home in 1989, after escaping Cuba and working double jobs to achieve his American dream.
“The house is my soul,” said Capote. “So what good is it to sell your soul for all the money in the world?”
The surrounding construction zone “is the most mega commercial development in Coral Gables history,” according to the local report.
Capote has refused offers of up to $900,000 for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom 1,300 square-feet home – as many as 60 offers over the past six years.
