Jupiter has that Great Red Spot that won’t heal.
It’s bringing down the property values in the neighbourhood.

But remember: once it’s sold, the price to get it back might be enormous.

Tanah untuk dijual

In this case means land for sale not soil or earth for sale.

So the Bahasa wasn’t interpreted correctly in the first place. Total human error. Could be avoided easily.

Tanah Untuk Dijual can be interpreted as either the sale of a plot of land to a buyer where the buyer gets ownership of a plot of land or it can mean the sale of earth (as in soil) where the original owner still owns the plot.

I guess the usage of “Earth for sale” is accurate in this case if it’s the second case – but it’s still funny though.

Tanah = Land, earth/soil
Untuk = for
jual = sell
“di” is added to a word to mean action (e.g. dijual = to sell, dibeli = to buy, etc.)
