This week I’m getting back to pricing that is not necessarily absurd…but don’t hold your breath.
$500K seems like a reasonable amount to spend if you were wanting to buy a decent family home, right?
Sure…in Scottsdale, Arizona (where the sun is always shining) you could buy this house:
This new home has 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms (2 ensuites) plus a sparkling pool, above ground spa and amazing views as far as the eye can see.
Maybe Scottsdale is too hot for you, or maybe too many “Snow Birds” are there for your liking. On the other side of the continent, how about this?
5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms located in Dartmouth, Halifax. The home is situated on an “exquisite and mature acre and a half of land with…300 feet of waterfrontage.” But, perhaps, this is too far away from an “urban” setting for you…how about Portland, Oregon?
Wow. Just. Wow. $500K in Portland buys you 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that span over 2500 square feet. This house looks like it came straight out of a design magazine. Nothing to do here…just move on in.
And…back in the Land of Absurd, half a million dollars can buy you this (and I am ashamed to say I was surprised at what a bargain this beauty is):
Sold “as is, where is.” No kidding. Someone is actually paying $1500/month to rent this house right now, and you are advised to “not walk on the property.” Don’t worry…I won’t.
Vancouver…are you f*%#ing kidding me??
