3rd Times the charm, if you are reading this, that is…I have attempted to write this blog 2 other times this week and have been unsuccessful both times…obviously. In my original post I was going to address the subject of what I would spend my money on if I win the lottery in light of the purchase of my very first powerball ticket. I decided that the majority of my money would go to buying a house…and not just any house, a Dream House. So, I went to the crème de la crème, best of the best for luxury realty: Sotheby’s Realty’s website. . There I went “window shopping for my perfect home. Using their “Find A Property” search I was able to find a house from almost every state. Originally I had included a property by property commentary but that took a little over 2 hours to do (which then deleted itself) and I don’t have time to do that again. I will leave the list here of my top result state-by-state. If the house made my top prop list I will be sure to let you know by marking it TOP CHOICE PICK. There are 9.

Alabama 4192449 NO

Alaska 4183710 NO

Arizona 4168661 YES
this house was given as my #1 choice for the entire country.

Arkansas N/A N/A
apparently Arkansas does not have any luxury real estate.

California 4145537 YES
A yes, but not a top choice.

Colorado 4179096 ???
I’m not 100% sure on this but I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt.

Connecticut 0064405 YES

Delaware 4177697 NO

Florida 4125584 YES
TOP CHOICE PICK. I was literally salivating over this house.

Georgia 4182436 YES
Still under construction. I could do virtually anything I wanted with it. But I’m looking for something that is simple and easy.

Hawaii 4093270 YES
It’s Hawaii. Who wouldn’t want to live there?

Idaho 4136886 YES

Illinois 4193818 YES
Three things saving this property from the NO list: Kitchen, Media Room, Pool.

I’m still on the fence about this one.

Everyone knows I love Minnesota but the best house I got there was only OK for a luxury home.

Mississippi 4063248 NO
beautiful porches but overall, not a fan.

Missouri 4192258 YES

No properties.

Nevada 4164702 YES

New Hampshire 4088757 NO

God Bless.
Go Pokes.
