$1.1 million, this house is for sale on a street full of homes worth around $500,000-$600,000, yes this house has been empty and for sale forever a year, the HO will not lower her outrageous asking price.

I know that nobody here has implied otherwise but it's been my experience that there is zero correlation between price of customer's house as it relates to my net profit . . . I've made the same profit painting kitchen cabinets in a trailer as I have painting the interior of a multi-million dollar home.

Eh, the bottom one's not that fancy. If you look closely you'll see an old abandoned tire in one of their flower beds as well.

I know it isnt a fancy house but for the neighborhood they are asking way to much. 1.1 mil and its worth half that.

It is kind of a neat thread but the value of the house is usually only because of the land it is situated on . That house that is over priced in the pic above by half a million can be had around here for about $ 240,000.00 . Our land prices are quite reasonable which is why so many Eastern seaboarders are moving here and buying up shore frontage . We also have a lot of people from Ontario that are moving back and retiring after selling their homes away . They can build here for a third of the cost and pocket the rest for retirement . As an example...a nice water frontage can be had for 100,000.00 bucks and that is a big lot .


Plus we are only about a 15 hour drive from Boston !

Just to clarify, my reply was referring to my post of the pictures of the crappy place and the palace - not the pics of the houses you posted.

IT is a bit weird because housing prices here are so so so high. I have done houses that are worth between 2-15million. In fact, the average house worth in the area I work in is about 2 million. They are not even huge houses, just water front or in wealthy areas.

There are tons of Million dollar homes here. With all the waterfront we work on, its nothing to have a million dollar lot. Needless to say we have done many homes worth well over a million, and to be honest, none of them felt like anything special.

We currently have 2 ongoing jobs, both on lakes, that are worth over a million. Nothing special, but they are decent places.

for about 15 years about 1/3 of my year was for a couple of CEO's , interesting jobs, my best stories.
But in a way my best clients are regular folks who get more than they were expecting, not those who wanted all you had and then some..

You are right about the land the houses sit on land has a lot to co with price, the big green house has around 250 acres but only 15-20 acres are going with that sale.
I am more or less just curious as to different prices and sizes of the homes probably should have called the thread biggest house instead of most expensive.

We have a population of around 130 Thousand in our province...very small ! We might have about 10 houses in the more than 3 Million range . There was one built about 3 miles from me that has a value of around 7 million . Anywhere else and that home becomes 10 Million easy ! I thought we would get that job . I was ticked that we did not . The woman who was responsible for the interior finishing and decorating had all her favorite buds there . Obviously she was getting kickbacks off of them .

Earlier that Winter I received a call from a woman asking me a ton of questions about the paint and gloss we had used on various areas of another home that she had assisted that owner on . I suggested a few changes and he went with my ideas over hers ! Needless to say...she did not have us at the top of her list !!! The woman that called was her...she tried to use a fake name...but I knew what was going on . Anyways ...to make a long story short...the lady of the house , the one I missed out on...fired that designer but she kept the painting crew that had started the job . They were good fellows...I knew them well and they were there a long time . I assume they made a great job !!! Oh well...we stayed busy and in all honesty...spending 6-8 months in the same home could get darn monotonous know matter how much you are making...especially when you would have to look out and see the golf course every hour of the day !!!


Keep posting the pics of them beautiful homes ....they are a treat to look at !!!

This is true, in my case with the 2 big homes we had a great view of lake Wentworth and one right on lake Winnipesaukee with it's own private cove, we actually stayed there in the 5,000 sqft inlaw apartment that was such a treat to wake up to every morning. The 2 houses took us a total of 14 weeks, we did leave for a week a couple of times because of work in our home area.
I know some big jobs can bog us down but once in a while it is a treat to be able to say hey I painted that palace.
