Who Would Buy The Most Expensive House?

Who would buy the most expensive house in the town?

Many years ago I had a luxury home in a prime neighborhood with all the bells and whistles.

It may have been the most expensive listing in the Baltimore area at the time.

There was a high profiled professional who had his assistant contact me for more information.

Finding out that there was a professional video of the property,  the assistant asked to have it sent over for his review.

When I offered to bring it over for a private showing, a date was set and we met at his corporate office.

There were about a dozen people including his family, friends, and colleagues. After seeing the presentation, he made this comment:

 

”Who in the world would pay that much

for a home in Baltimore?”   

My answer…

"The same person who needs to say

 I own the most expensive home in Baltimore!”

 

$$$ 

 

A dozen people stood, applauded and recognized he was that kind of person!

 Even though he did not buy the house…we all had lots of laughs.

I suspect a number of people would buy the most expensive house in town.  There are those personality types who like living on top of the food chain.  Your last sentence is right on.

Hi Margaret,
You're absolutely right.  There is always someone that wants that honor.  As you know, it's buying the most expensive home in an undesireable neighborhood that isn't prudent.

Fun story Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland . In another life I was a traveling salesman and I found the most expensive home in many towns was owned by the local plumber.

Nina Rogoff His comment at the time was very sharp. He could have reacted differently to my comment...luckily it was taken with a great deal of humor...and truth.

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland Your answer was spot on - the person who needed to say it to feed his ego.  And there you have your buyer.
