Dream house lost.

I put an offer on a 100+ year old house in Galena, Illinois a year ago. The owners and I couldn't agree on a price so the deal fell through. It was a terrific rehabbed house on a hill with fireplaces in every room, a state of the art kitchen, guest quarters and a view of the whole town from the front window. I have become rather obsessed with this house and even checked up who, later, did purchase it. The strange thing was the sale price was less than my offer but it included something called "personal property" for 20k which the buyers apparently, added to the price of the house with the approval of the sellers. I've bought and sold condos and one house before but I never heard of including "personal property" in a deal. Did they throw in a car or artwork or something? Seems odd to me. I know I should get past this house but I just can't. Thanks for any input.

Which town in southwest Michigan would be most desireable to re-locate for early retirees?

I'm considering buying a house on the southwestern coast of Michigan on Lake Michigan - New Buffalo, Saugatuck, Coloma, Union Pier, Douglas, Holland , etc. - which would be the best place to buy -pro's and con's of each community.
