Is Now the Time to Buy a $1 Million Home?

For buyers with good credit and healthy bank accounts, a million dollars buys a lot more home than it did a few years ago

The Karsentis are jumping into South Florida real estate at a risky time: Home prices are down, foreclosures are up, and for-sale signs are as common as palm trees.
