Which house would you buy if you HAD to buy one?
For me it's the Seattle house all the way. Love all those windows!

I am with you Pinks, the Seattle house is the winner by a wide margin.

I'm in love with where I live (Seattle area) so this is a no-brainer for me. Having said that, these are three nice houses, and the Florida one is a close runner up -- perhaps for winter visits.

The Seattle one, absolutely no contest.

Seattle. Open, bright, contemporary but warm, amazing views.

Had I known one of them was in the Florida Keys, I wouldn't have had to look at the other two at all. Florida Keys house, because . . . Florida Keys.

Seattle, definitely! A lovely house and, wow, that view!

As always, this makes me think about what that money could buy around here - this or this or this.

This is kinda tough. I was initially pretty primed for the Keys house. It's beautiful outside, and has the dock with space for 2 boats. Gorgeous. But the architecture itself? Pretty generic, ticky-tacky vacationland/open-plan/cheap materials, plus it looks like it's in a boring community, even if it's in the Keys. There are the Keys and then there are the Keys, and this looks like it's in a Gated Community Boringville Retiree part of the keys, not laid-back Jimmy-Buffet-Sunset-Party-Land keys. So, I think I'd go for Seattle as the best combination of house + view + community. The PA house is really nice, great history, well preserved, but you'd be stuck in Dullsville there too. It's the kind of place you'd live because you got an awesome job there, so you found an awesome old house, not because it's an awesome place to be in and of itself. Seattle FTW.

Actually, I want to live in Boringville. I plan to spend my declining years studying some obscure subject, yet to be determined, and writing things on the typewriter that nobody wants to read. Screw community.

Seattle. It's not even close.

The Florida place would be my distant second. It looked cozy, but I'm not a big fan of Florida, and that pic of the walkway out to that raised platform really killed any consideration for me. The enclosed pool looked pretty dumb, too.

Seattle, for the weather and the culture. You couldn't pay me to live in Florida, period, and Pennsylvania is just meh.

The Pennsylvania house all the way. I hate the Seattle house and Florida scares me.
