Jeff Koopersmith takes a look through the real estate listings – and has a laugh at the McCain's expense.
October 31, 2008 – Geneva (apj.us) – Here's a good one.
McCain and his wife put up one of their homes for auction last week. I received email from the auction house about it because I was in the business.
Anyway – they claimed the house, which looks like a whorehouse-quality Holiday Inn motel type job, was worth 15 million.
The house didn't sell.
Now they have it at Sotheby's for $12 million.
Paying $12 million for ANYTHING in Phoenix – unless it's an office tower – is nuts.
