$675,000 was the highest price a home sold in the Highlands, and that was on 4/6/10. Again, because this is the Obama Depression, banks will not loan that much due to appraisal issues, and the property taxes on the home if it did sell for $875k would be over $20k......Get back to Realville folks, you are living in a fantasy world.

Actually, there was a house on Washington Circle that went for $1.1 million on 3/12 which would have been just about the bottom of the market. There are several houses in the neighborhood that would fetch over $1 million.

I just happened on to this listing which caught my eye immediately as I spent about 12 years growing up in the house. And, it was/is a magnificient home (agree w/ the interior design comments though). The pictures listed are nice but seeing the house as a whole puts them to shame. There is a lot more to the house than written and only a walk through does it justice.

That's just mean and ignorant. I know the owners, and they are not trying to impress anyone, nor are they stupid.

I think you should call it the "Bush" recession, that would be a lot more accurate.
