Two point Three Million Dollar Mansion

It’s a great looking house. It’s Italianate. It probably has 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths and a powder room. The kitchen probably has all stainless steel appliances and granite counter-tops or whatever the 2006 equivalent for these might be. It probably has a huge living room and a separate family room, library with marble floors, and a Florida room that opens to a pool. It’s in South Florida between the Intra-coastal and the beach. However, it isn’t on the beach, and besides, It’s just a huge yellow block (HYB)! To see other houses/small mansions and large mansions of this kind in South Florida go to Corcoran Group Real Estate.

“You’re probably just envious as hell, because you can’t afford the front door and steps, Isaac.”

Yes, I’m talking to myself again. In fact, the longer I’m away from THE BIG NEEDLE and on my own, the more conversations I hold with myself. I guess I’m crazier than a coot, or perhaps I’m my own best friend. Be that as it may, I couldn’t climb all those stairs in the HYB anyway, and I certainly don’t need all those extra bedrooms. Nor do I want to clean that huge space.

So, I’m still looking for my 2 to 3 bedroom (small) condominium, and it looks like it will cost at least a quarter of a million, probably twice that. So, a mortgage will definitely be in order. Will I be able to get one at my age?

I talk to myself all the time. I tell my children that I'm the only one that listens to me anyway.

The houses are incredible to us europeans. I like the way they provide a mortgage calculator, brings you back to earth with a bump.
