Why not invest in an igloo?

Something for the weekend ...

Inventory is low and competition is high, but since there’s so much snow outside, some playful investors might want to head outside and build their own investment property.

A new AirBNB listing is charging $10 a night rent for a one-bedroom igloo in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The description includes: “Comfortably fits one, or two if curled up. You can use the house bathroom and kitchen if you need. Tarp and yoga mattress provided. You’ll need to bring your own sleeping bag.”

An igloo might not be the best long-term investment, since the snow is bound to melt eventually, but it might be a fun way to survive the deep freeze – and the inventory shortage.
