A 100-acre New Hampshire compound at the center of a 2007 armed standoff with federal agents is for up for sale again nine months after it was sold at auction.

The auction followed a two-year effort to sell the compound and a dental office belonging to tax evaders Ed and Elaine Brown. Authorities couldn't guarantee the compound wasn't booby trapped. A real estate agent believes it's safe.
