The world around us evolves so fast it sometimes makes our heads spin. You can see this most graphically in big cities. So imagine this: a brand-new mall is gonna be built right where your house is standing, and you’ve been offered a generous sum of money to relocate. Would you do it? Well, if you’re anything like these property owners, that’d be a big fat “Nah, I’m good, thanks!”
