Home Prices Are Down; So Buy a Castle!

As long as you're house hunting, how about a little house dreaming? Prices on those luxury properties are lower than they've ever been, which can make the dreams seem almost real.

Fancy a castle? Check out www.castles-for-sale.com/buy/. Some of them cost less than a two-bedroom, one-bath house in San Francisco did just a couple of years ago! (But the heating bills will kill ya.)

Or how about your own island? See Private Islands Online. I see a little one in Scotland for only 65,000 Euro. (Then again, it looks like one wave could wash away anything you build there.)

And for general luxury everywhere, don't miss www.luxuryrealestate.com/. Let's see, should I search for "chateaus" or "estates?" What I could do with a few million dollars . . . .
