“But land, they’re not making it anymore.” Mark Twain

“But land, they’re not making it anymore.” Mark Twain

The longer I’m in real estate, the more I appreciate the hunger my mother and cousins had for “land,” a hunger for “tierra” like no other.

Back home, when my relatives talked about the land they proudly owned, it was talked about with honor and tended to with effort, because there was a hard day’s work attached to every brick they sourced. They didn’t discuss design trends, wallpaper, style of the home, or the appliances they bought…that’s not where the satisfaction came from. Their dignity was forged by owning the land to build on…to take care of their families and pass on the fruits of their labor to the next generation.

And while every week during broker and client showings, I see and soak in new and older homes with my mother’s eyes, assessing the maxed-out square footage of it for its bottom line and top profit…I can’t help but wonder if that desire for land has been lost and traded for a numbers game. Yet ultimately, they can be appreciated and loved in both arenas. As a family home and as an investment. An investment that can be secured for the future.

This thought was reiterated when I recently read about the James F. Goldstein house. It is truly stunning. There are celebrity homes, well-known homes that families were raised in…yet homes can be famous regardless of who’s lived there…the architecture, grounds, grandeur…the properties themselves become and stay famous.

Learn about this amazing home and enjoy!
