There was an old building by us that right before the Great Recession was going to be renovated into pretty high end condos. They redid part of one upper floors for displays/sales. I even checked it out when they had an open house: 3 bed, 2 bath luxury urban lofts staged with all sorts of cool furnishings and decorations. Looked great with 15 foot ceilings, exposed brick, restaurant grade kitchen, huge windows and high end finishes. Some place I could never afford but dream about.

Then the market crashed and the developer went to jail for all sorts of book cooking. The building sat there (supposedly empty) until the market had recovered enough in late 2011. When the new developer went in they found 4 squatters who'd been living in the displays for what they'd claimed was almost 2 years. They said during that entire time they kept their mouths shut to not ruin a good thing. They also said that nobody ever came in to check the place out. No cops, no security guards and nobody from the banks that foreclosed on the building.
