What South Floridian's are Doing for Extra Cash...

There may be a new business in town - forget selling Real Estate, how about burial plots?  

It was supposed to be their eternal resting place.

But hundreds of South Floridians are trying to trade in their pre-purchased burial plots for cash – or in at least one Craig's List ad, a minivan.

People are saying that it's not like in the olden days when familes actually visited gravesites. Times have changed, and money is short. These sellers are using websites, burial plot brokers and funeral homes to market their final resting place. And while nobody tracks the number of resales, ads show single plots start at about $1,000 while family plots can cost upward of $50,000.

So what do you think, would you be interested in purchasing one of these burial plots?

David, that's a sad state of affairs when people resort to selling their final resting place.
