Before watching movies at home was as easy as the click of a mouse, renting videos was an event that required a car trip to a video rental store where one would peruse the titles and finally choose several to stock up for the weekend’s entertainment.  The video rental had a time limit and inconveniently had to be returned by the date provided or the user would pay a late fee. Entrepreneur H. Wayne Huizenga identified the folly the meager offerings of local stores provided so he bought into, co-owned and developed Blockbuster, which changed and soon dominated the video rental playing field.  No one else could compete with Blockbuster’s massive selection and it stayed well in the forefront of the video rental industry until the digital age. Among Huizenga’s myriad of other business holdings, Huizenga’s net worth at his time of death in 2018 was well over $2 billion. The waterfront mansion he chose to live in was in the boating capital of the world, Fort Lauderdale, Florida surrounded by water on three sides.  Named Tarpon Pointe and previously priced at $27 million, it will be going to auction on March 26th with no reserve.  Read & See more at Top Ten Real Estate Deals
