Along the 26.2 mile course I set about the task of counting FOR SALE signs in varying areas and neighborhoods to get a better understanding of the current housing market in this rarefied territory. A cursory evaluation told me that the larger seasonal dwellings had signs in evidence while those homes with year round residents did not.
Maybe those contractors, landscapers, painters and pool maintenance people are not so bad off after all?
