Property Overlooking Elvis' Birthplace To Be Auctioned

A buyer for property located across from Elvis Presley's birthplace is being sought internationally through the online auction site, EBay. Tupelo, MS (PRWEB) February 25, 2005 -- After receiving much attention from Tupelo city officials, the media, and support from the public, Mr. Joey Brewer, owner of The Blue Suede Shoe Bed & Breakfast, Catering, and Gifts, is auctioning his property, located at 501 Elvis Presley Drive, Tupelo, Mississippi, on EBay, the leading internet auction site. Mr. Brewer bought the property in hopes of renovating and molding this split level home on approximately 2 acres to offer a comfortable bed & breakfast to devout fans of the departed "King." "This property is located across the street from where over 100,000 registered visitors come yearly and stand in awe of how a small Mississippian, born in a one room home, influenced the sound of music forever," says Mr. Brewer. "This place is a gold mine." The Birthplace of Elvis is the highest visited landmark in the state of Mississippi. Mr. Brewer, knowing this fact, feels this property will appeal to anyone with good business sense, and an entrepreneur or investor will jump at the chance to purchase this property. "The new Oren Dunn Museum of the American Dream, soon to be built two lots over, will increase the traffic to this area too," Mr. Brewer explained, "adding to the expected revenues this property will realize. The Furniture Market alone in this area requires that more unique housing opportunities are offered. There's only one other bed and breakfast in town. Not everyone can stay there due to space constraints. This will be a perfect location for a bed and breakfast and gift shop." Mr. Brewer looked beyond the normal boundaries of the U.S. to sell this property. "This property is unique. I felt that a realtor was not going to give the exposure that this idea needs. Elvis is known worldwide, and I wanted to provide an opportunity of purchase to Elvis fans abroad," said Mr. Brewer. "That's why I chose to auction the property on EBay." Although the home has been posted on the EBay site for almost 4 days, almost 380 people have clicked on the link to the sale of this home and property. Mr. Brewer is eager that he will receive a bid on this hot spot of real estate very soon, and the next owner could be from anywhere in the world. This property can be viewed and bid upon until March 21, 2005 07:54:35 PST at http://www.ebay.com Enter Item Number: "4359348927" or Type "501 Elvis Presley" in the Search Box.

If you are in Memphis it is worth the 101 mile drive to Tupelo to see the Elvis Birthplace house and museum. They have made some nice improvements in the last couple of years. While there visit the hardware store and the Tupelo Automobile Museum which has cars dating from 1896 to 1992. It will be interesting to see if anybody can make the bed and breakfast successful.
