Buyers stake out prime homes on Tulalip Reservation

Beachfront houses with prized views are going for rock-bottom prices on the Tulalip Reservation in Washington.

The homes are for sale but the land isn't. The Tulalip Tribes lease the land but since many of the leases expire in 2012, current owners have put their homes on the market.

The tribe says it is taking back the land due to erosion along the beach. Some leases may get a 15-year extension.

Some non-Indians are upset their leases will be canceled and have threatened legal and other action.
