It is really interesting to me to hear about other real estate markets and what things sell for around the country and the world.Â One of my favorite TV channels is HGTV.Â I love watching people compare and pick out houses.Â Â Â I also enjoy seeing how they decorate them after a few months of living there.Â It also gives you a really interesting view of these various markets.Â Sometimes you can see some very strange and exotic things.
One of show that really sticks in my mind is a House Hunters.Â The couple on this show was looking for a home in the Mediterranean.Â I cannot remember if it was Greece or not.Â They picked a house that I thought they would not because the long walk and steps to the door on the side of the hill was lengthy.Â This couple ended up buying it for $750,000 US right on the sea and believe it or not it still needed fixing up.Â It was practically ruins and had no plumbing.Â I wonder how they dealt with that on the side of a hill.Â I have no idea how they would get their furniture up there but they may need a mule.
