Just For Fun - Home Catagory Question

4 Replies

I spoke to three people about a block I plan to purchase a home on, and without asking a thing from either I got a description from each. “You buying a mansion…”, “You buying a mini-mansion…”, “Dam, you buying a big a$$ house…”.
Not to call them out because I’ve been hearing those sayings for years. I honestly never knew how to distinguish one from the other (outside of the obvious Oprah Jordan Buffett’s homes).
Is there a set stat to separate the three classifications? If not and you use these terms what are your specs to determining the difference?
Big A$$ House

lol! I have no idea what would distinguish a mini-mansion from a big-a$$ house, but I'd guess it would be a mini-mansion when you're talking to the pastor and a big-a$$ house down at the bar...

FYI Buffet lives in the same house he bought in 1958 for $31,500 so you may not be able to tell those "mansions" from the others.

Otherwise I don't think there is a standard definition for any of those, just what you, I, your friend each decide that is.

is that so where? I imagine $32 grand bought a lot of house in 58.
