Reader Anonymommy points out that this house was profiled in the Wall Street Journal today. I did not go see it today, but if the owners really did put $16 million into it, I think they were silly. It’s four acres, and the town appraises it at $8.5. That seems about right to me.

They whip their women for wearing pants, decapitate little girls for daring to go to school and blow themselves up to kill infidels. Let’s get the hell out of the Muslim world and let them have at it. But let’s not let them on our airplanes or our country.
$1.1 trillion spending bill, plus the new tax bill with its ethanol subsidies and God knows what else, the Republicans should just go home for the holidays and come back next year to sort all this out. Unfortunately, that pig in the middle is a Republican himself. Say you want a revolution …
LA bans entry-level jobs by refusing fast food restaurants, while NYC hits Walmart’s. Buy over-priced goods at bodegas, damn you!
What does a thief do with $2 million in gambling chips? They’re only good at the issuing casino, right? And that institution keeps track of its winners, so, how do you cash these in? I’m not familiar with casinos, so I’m sure I’m missing something here – just curious.
Bob Horton’s got a great article on Tod’s Point and our town’s idiocy. We are paying park gatekeepers to staff the barricades in case anyone tries to bring a dog in between November 1, when beach passes are no longer required, and December 1, when the door’s opened for dogs. Why is this?
Almost nothing on the open house tour today – a reflection of the season, so I’m staying put. There is one new listing at 125 Pecksland Road asking $15 million, but the owner paid in the 2s for its land back in 2000, and I’m hard pressed to figure how whatever she built on it is worth her asking price. Besides, no client I have needs “garaging” for 13 cars.
26 Shore Acre, mentioned here previously as “pending” is now officially under contract, meaning all contingencies: mortgage, inspection, etc. have been met. I liked this house. It sold for $1.865 in 2004, asked $2.495 back in April of this year and finally dropped to just about its 2004 price, $1.995.
Similarly, 46 Oval Drive in Riverside sold for $1.296 in 2004 and is now under contract with an asking price of $1.295. Again, not a bad buy, but 2004 pricing does seem to be our new benchmark.
Police Chief Brian Fengel said his department takes incidents like this seriously, adding that such behavior would not be condoned in the Peoria-area village
