  1. Interesting how few luxury condos we have in Northern Nevada, most of our penthouses go for less than $1.5m. Yeah, we’re nowhere near seattle’s economy but our population is clost to 500,000. Over at my home country in Philippines, condos are just booming with Trump towers leading the way…shaky market right now, IMO.
