What the Heck is This Substance?


We received a call from the STCU facilities manager who said a residue was covering their ATM at our Deer Park property.  He'd gotten a call from a concerned member and then forwarded the pictures to me.

At first, it was thought to be chemical de-icer that was sprayed haphazardly on to the ATM.  I contacted our snowplowing company and asked them to look into it.  They went to the site and inspected the ATM.  It turned out to not be de-icer, but an oily substance.


This prompted further investigation by the snowplowing company.  They had recently placed a truck into service due to a ruptured hydraulic line.  The ruptured line was spraying fluid everywhere.  Prior to being taken out of service, the last place the truck had worked was our site.  

Mystery solved and then cleaned up.  Never a dull moment in the life of a real estate investor. 

A New Vacancy, A New Opportunity

After nearly 40 years, Spokane Vitamin Supply moved out of our building at 1008 W. Rosewood.

The business had changed had several times, the most recently a few years ago.  The recent owners sold the business again and the new buyers have relocated it to their existing business in the Spokane Valley (neighboring city).

What this has left us with is a vacancy.  It's time to crank up the machine and start marketing the property.
