Luxury buyers want it all including the (second) kitchen sink
Today's homebuyers want more for less – a pattern that is also starting to manifest in the luxury market, say local industry experts.
"There's no question that, like everybody, we've felt the pinch," said Danny Raposo, general manager of Astoria Custom Homes, which is building in Watermark at Bearspaw, just outside the city limits.
Still, Raposo describes 2016 as "a decent year," noting an increased interest in Astoria's Watermark product during the eight weeks prior to mid-September.
