One of my favorite features in the New York Times’s real estate section shows what properties at a certain price look like in a handful of different markets around the country. The current piece tells what $950,000 will get you in Philadelphia; Holland, Michigan; and Rio Verde, Arizona.
The place in Rio Verde is a 3,662 square foot home … for retirees. Call me crazy, but what on earth does a retiree need with such a big ol’ house? Just curious.
