What Do You Get for a Million Bucks?
A selection of million dollar (plus) homes all around the country, as recently listed on Craigslist. I've tried to pull a sampling of the more A&C-ish properties, and have only included those that had photographs. It's amazing how much more you get for your money in some parts of the country, although when you get way up at the top end, it seems like quality has very little to do with the price - it's all about veneer, aesthetic, style and nothing else.
