Now? They can be millions. Apartments in Manhattan basically start a $1,000/sqft, and go up from there. Lofts tend to be at least 1,500/sqft. Originally, they weren't so expensive, but they eventually became a premium product, and prices in Manhattan in general have gone nuts.

Just for fun. I was cleaning out junk on my website when I came across this page.

Thought it might be fun for this thread. It is no longer for sale so the location is of no direct interest. Let's just say it is in the NW.

Enjoy...it is headed for the trash can but I will leave it up a few weeks.

Actually fixer mansion. Needed $300,000 for livable and twice that for great.

It is actually a super nice one bedroom home with servant and guest quarters.

And a garage for the man with 50 automobiles.

I think the OP was talking about the norm, not the exception. I, personally, like the look of the "cookie cutter" neighborhoods. After spending so many years in New England, it is nice to see something other than a Cape, Colonial, Raised Ranch, or Triple-Decker.

Interesting house, LVOC. Thanks for posting.

There are some homes with great features out here, as long as they were not built during the boom. When the boom happened, they were slapping them up so quick that they had no time to mess with things like architectural interest or specialized amenities.

There was this one model home that I looked at in 2000 or so that offered a little sunken enclave off the master bedroom that featured a fireplace that was also viewable from the master itself. It had a place to put a TV and it was very cozy. ( an escape from the kids) . Unfortunately, I could not afford 200k at that time. This was in the area that was then called Elkhorn Springs in NW LV.

I agree NLVGal. In my original post I was referring to homes in the price ranges of $200-350k. But I believe homes don't become interesting here until about $500-700k depending on the market.

Reminds me more of a commercial building than a house.
