The Acid Test

How do you tell if a larger, upper bracket home really is “great for entertaining?” (as many tout that they are).

Put 50-plus people in it — as happens every Thursday a.m. at Edina Realty’s weekly Exceptional Properties meeting — and see how well the house accommodates them.

When everyone fits comfortably in the house’s most generous-sized room (typically, the Living Room) . .  . the house passes.

However, when the Realtors are backed up into the hallway, craning their necks around corners, or otherwise crammed into a too-small room . . . the house flunks.

P.S.:  this morning’s listing passed.
