In Ontario, a 19 acre lot off Lake Erie is listed for about $80,000. There is a catch. The listing reads: "This property is presently under water. But could have endless possibilities in the future."

NOEL KING, HOST:

In Ontario, a 19-acre lot right near Lake Erie is being listed for a little over $80,000, which is a steal. However, there is a catch. The listing reads, this property is presently underwater, but could have endless possibilities in the future. Be creative. It does not say what the possibilities might be. It's MORNING EDITION.
