The Lighter Side of Real Estate Part 3
# 19 - The Highest Court in the Land
The United States Supreme Court is a symbol of justice in our country but there may be more to the name than meets the eye. Supreme Court Judges are appointed for life and many reports spending long hours within the confines of the Supreme Court Building. We most often hear of what takes place in the Court Room however many of the amenities are not often reported. On the fourth and fifth floors of the Supreme Court Building are offices, sleeping quarters, a full gym and fitness center as well as a full-sized basketball court. This gives new meaning to The Highest Court in the Land.

In 2010 the average price for a single-family home in Aspen was over $6 Million dollars. The lowest-priced single-family home to sell in Aspen was a single wide mobile home in a mobile home park with no land sold for $599,000.
