A couple of weeks ago, my daughter and SIL drove by a house that is about half a mile from where we live...just on the other side of the freeway. A sign that said "Soon to be on the market" caught their eye. From the street, they fell in love with the property and could hardly wait for it to be listed. They were estimating it to be at the very top end of our budget...or a tad above.
Then we saw the listing.
Main house: 3020 square feet (with only 2 bedrooms); guest house: 1500 square feet. And way over our budget.
