I'm sorry, but why would most people these days in this economy want to see what they can not have? Perhaps you you should feature property thats 60,000+ and promote good deals and helping the ecoomy for what we can afford. Will we ever learn, less is MORE!

Laura, you took my thoughts right out of my head. Who really needed to see that ridiculous story. "Will we ever learn, less is more"? That only happens when people value themselves over their possesion. there is hope. I know and believe alot of people due.

Right on Cheri and Laura! The thing that get me is most of us "boomers" grew up in a house with less than 1000 square feet!

Yep, my parents raised 4 kids in a little 3-bedroom bungalow back in the 1960's. We got by just fine. Life was much simpler back then and people generally seemed much happier than today.

Instead of listing a couple of McMansions that few of us can afford, why not do some real investigation and try to find some homes for sale that appear to be good values and that are within reach of the average reader of this publication?
