Real Estate's Final Frontier?

According to the folks over at MovotoBlog, it would only cost me $1,920,000,000 to launch my house into space. I don't know about you, but that seems a bit steep, as attractive as the idea is. Maybe I'll submit a counter.

If you've always wanted to know what it would cost to launch your home into space, here's your opportunity:

Dick,

that is too funny, I am sure there are people who would pay to launch a houseful of individuals into outer space!  What a clever idea! A

Earth suits me fine Dick. Heck I don't even like to fly anymore. But this would classify as a back up plan?

Funny Dick. Mine wouldn't cost quite as much as yours, but still it's pretty spendy.  I'm sure I'd miss gardening in outer space. Can't fathom having meteors and planets floating around in the back yard. Therefore, not quite ready to launch...

Too expensive for me, so I am going to wait and see if the price goes down.

Hmmmmm. . . I think I'll sell it and at least break even on it! :)  My launch cost is under $900,000, but still not worth the temporary thrill!  That was fun!  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dick -- early adapters pay the price to be innovators --- wait until the bugs are worked out and the price comes down....just sayin'.

What a funny program. I never imagined wondering how much my house would cost to "launch". Thanks for the morning chuckle.

What a funny program. I wonder what the inspiration for this was. I have a feeling it is cheaper to build there. =)

Mine would be a bit pricey to complete. Maybe I'll send my builder into space instead.
