## ....in the high \$20-million range

He bought a house in a high \$20-million range

Does "high" here mean high price or value and expensive?
Or it is used to imply the price of the house is close to 30 million dollars?

thank you

The high 20 million range, or "the high twenties (20s)" means more than twenty five and less than thirty (million).

In British English, I'd assume it to be a bit hgher than twenty-six. Here, it would be closer to thirty; say, twenty-seven and up.

I'd use 'high'. I wouldn't use 'high' for something just over 25- that would be mid-twenty million range for me.
