Which of these homes would you take if they were offered for free?

Every now and then we all dream of living a peaceful and quiet life off the grid. Maybe the thought creeps up on us when work is starting to feel like Groundhog Day, or perhaps it’s just an ongoing internal longing for some real isolation.

On this note, I’ve gathered some of the most secluded houses in the world.

So take a few minutes and venture away from the cramped crowds and tedious traffic by picturing yourself relocating to these dwellings far, far away from civilisation – even if it’s just through the land of your imagination.

2016 Real Estate Trends April-June vs July-Sep

October 5, 2016

Hi Everyone,

I compiled data for different cities for $1MM-$2MM and $2MM-$5MM properties.

Generally speaking, the $1MM-$2MM market has softened across all markets with sales prices down, $/square foot down, % over list down and days on market up.

 The data for $2MM-$5MM market is less stable as there are fewer transactions.  However, the market in Lamorinda seems to have softened while the market in Oakland/Berkeley/Piedmont is up slightly.  With this range, a single outlier can impact the averages significantly.
