That House Costs HOW Much?!
We love The New York Times's ongoing "What You Get For" series where the newspaper takes a set real estate price and compares what your money will buy you in various states and cities. We're particularly taken with this week's roundup of homes currently on the market each with a price tag around $1.85M. The results have us in a flurry of emotions: amused, shocked, horrified, confused, contemplating moving, and more. See the results for yourself and lets us know your own thoughts in the comments!
