On a lark, we decide to go see open houses that are well outside our target budget, just to see what things are like in that market. We're talking houses that are listed at 1.5 – 3 Million dollars. The most expensive house was large, nice finishes (but not spectacular), great water with and reasonable privacy. Another house had the charm of old post-and-beam construction in parts, but most of it was badly and cheaply finished. The third house had spectacular waterviews, but was on a difficult lot and oddly laid out. None worth their asking price, in our opinion.
