I am not a economic wizard or a financial guru. But what I do possess is common sense. So this year in doing my fifth annual Luxe Home Tour of million-dollar-plus homes, I was not surprised to see a home that had been on the market for three years still sitting unsold.

Even my favorite home from last year is still unsold. As the economic market suffers a major meltdown, I always wondered who was making the money to buy all those homes?

Anywary the tour is still worth the time and effort that it takes to do it. I saw some wonderful homes and even went all the way to wisconsin to see the one off of Lake Delavan.

For anyone not familiar with the Luxe Home Tour, it occurs once a year in September. It is co-sponsored by Caribou Coffee and the Merchandis Mart Luxe Home. I may not be able to afford a multi-million dollar home, but I can take the time to see designs by local decorators that I can use to improve my beloved bungalow.
