Receiver Stephen E. Anderson's Motion to Confirm and/or Approve the Sale of 3788 Century Drive, Island Park, Idaho Property came on regularly for hearing in Courtroom 4 of the 21 above-entitled Court on November 7, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., the Honorable Lawrence K. Karlton 22 presiding, with counsel appearing on behalf of Receiver. The Court having considered the 23 papers submitted in support of the application, and the arguments of counsel and for good cause 24 shown, 25 THE COURT FINDS AND ORDERS AS FOLLOWS:
Receiver's Motion to Confirm and/or Approve the Sale of 3788 Century Drive, Island Park, Idaho Property is hereby GRANTED.
According to the Receiver's Declaration (Dkt. No. 439-02): Receiver has complied with 2 the procedures to sell the luxury residential property on a private reservoir located at 3788 3 Century Drive, Island Park, Idaho (APN 214-210-07) (the "Island Park Property") set forth in the 4 Court's September 20, 2011 Order (Document No. 426); 5
Title to the Island Park Property is held in the name of EIMT Properties, LLC, over 6 which Receiver has been appointed as Receiver (Document No. 128);

The high bid of $1,030,000 was submitted by L2 Limited Partnership and L3 Limited Partnership (the "Purchasers") and included a deposit of ten percent (10%) of the proposed 11 purchase price ($103,000); 12
Although the sale will result in only approximately $1,500 being transmitted to the 13 receivership estate, it is in the best interest of the receivership estate since continuing to hold the 14 Island Park Property will result in significant additional expense without a realistic prospect that 15 the Island Park Property's value will increase in the future to cover those additional carrying 16 costs and result in greater proceeds being remitted to the receivership estate; and The Purchasers have requested that title be issued in the name of Lewis J.

Accordingly, Receiver is hereby authorized to execute and convey the Island Park Property as is, with no representations and warranties, to Lewis J. Newman and Dana Newman 22 21 (husband and wife) and Lane L. Newman and Loni K. Newman (husband and wife) or to any 23 other designee(s) directly by the Purchasers, for the purchase price of $1,030,000, with Receiver 24 paying all closing costs customarily paid by a seller of real estate in Fremont County, Idaho; 25
Receiver is further authorized to pay the balance due and owing on note and the deed of 26 trust on the Island Park Property from the sales proceeds;
Receiver is hereby further authorized to execute all documents necessary to legally convey the Island Park Property as set forth in this order; and If the confirmed and approved sale is not closed by the Purchasers, then the Purchasers ...
