Doesn't matter. I'm from Hawaii and the saying goes, "You need to pay to live in paradise." It's true. I live in a million dollar home but it definitely isn't what people would imagine it to be. And I don't even have a pool! I'll take that $800k house any day. Repairs and all.
In my area, you can get a 6 bedroom house with a pool for under $500,000. Unless I am buying a new house, I don't intend on spending over $300,000. I am currently renting a studio so I am not bothered by smaller spaces.
