If you think Denver home prices are high…check out Nantucket’s

by | Nov 26, 2018 | Blog

Housing prices in Denver can seem off the charts—that is, until you compare them to other places. Contrasted with Nantucket, for example, Denver is a virtual home buyers’ paradise.

A recent article in the New York Times titled “What you get for $800,000” offered readers a peak at what sort of home that money will buy across the country. On Nantucket, it will apparently get you a one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage as big as your average concession stand.

In fact, it was previously just that: a small stand that sold sodas and candy.

In other words, to say that it’s small is an understatement. And it’s not necessarily a little “gem” either. The home has no granite kitchen counters – just chipped and cracked tile. No stainless steel appliances, but an old white oven/cooktop.  No large master bedroom; instead, it has a room so small you can lay in the middle of the bed and practically touch both walls.

On a good note, the bathroom includes a shower. Hey, even owners of $800,000-plus homes need to freshen up every now and then.
