My wife and I have a nice apartment -- two bedrooms, two porches, big kitchen, etc. But this rent thing is killing me. I feel like I'm flushing money down the toilet (although if it clogs, I can just call the landlord, which is nice).
So we'd like to buy a house someday. But we live in Westchester County, NY, the most expensive county in the country. So on a whim, I decided to see what a million dollars would get us.
A mere $1.5 mill gets you this house, whose description starts with "HOUSE NEEDS UPDATING." I'm sorry, but for 1.5 million dollars, I shouldn't need to update anything... ever. $1.5 million is 145 miles of one dollar bills. For that much money, I want a team of men to show up at my door whenever a lightbulb burns out.
I should go see if I can fish some of that money out of the toilet...Posted by Kevin at May 24, 2004 05:09 PM
