Holdout family won't sell Florida condo to timeshare giant

CBS News


Julieta Corredor, her two sons and their families have used their two-bedroom townhouse in the heart of Orlando's tourist district as a place for honeymoons, family gatherings and college housing during the more than 30 years they've owned it.

When one of the world's largest timeshare companies bought up the surrounding condominium units and made entreaties for 81-year-old Corredor to sell hers, the South Florida family refused. Nonetheless, bulldozers for a Westgate Resorts contractor demolished the entire condo development - trees, a tennis court, and a spa - leaving only the Corredors' 1,125-square-foot townhouse standing.
