FT Lauderdale houses are insane and rising. My friends do real estate down there, plus i had a boss who still does real estate down there. Some nice homes but certain areas the homes while are good arent worth the money imo.

Family old house there in 1972 was bought for 45 grand ..is now being sold for 500 grand with no remodeling or anything in Ft. Lauderdale.Any shlt hole down there is worth over 200 grand . A trailer with a pool is prob. worth about 200 grand.

My rent = duties. Take out the trash, clean the bathroom, bring in the groceries, change the cat litter and thats it. Crib looks like a Weekend from Bernies.

What other duties are included when living in moms basement.

Down here in central NJ, the cheapest one bedroom I was able to find (ignoring studios that are too small for my girl and I) was $875. Not as much cheaper than NY as I thought it would be.

Gotta love that real estate tax. That'll **** you up that ass good.

waterfront homes in the suburb I grew up in are insane too. My parents bought a house for 40k in the early 80s and now it is worth like $3-400,000 just because of the location. All these richs people from the States or Ontario keep moving into the area driving up property prices, it's really annoying but good for anyone that owns property already

$1550, one bedroom Upper East Side, Manhattan. Yeah it's a lot, but I eventually want to purchase maybe a brownstone in Brooklyn or even Hoboken, NJ.

Funny you mention a trailor with a pool costing that much because its not far from the truth. In Mirmar you can find trailor like homes with a pool in the back for that much. Garage included. Driveway. Homes are like mini models of bigger homes. But cost just as much as the bigger version.

Whoever had a home or homes down there years ago are happy campers now.

Only $700 a month... Me & wifey are about to make a settlement on a crib in overbrook.... it'll be about a 1000 a month... not too bad. Prices for homes are skyrocketing right now (in Philly)... better get yours soon or be assed out.

Exactly and If they decide to sell they can basically be rich in middle class America an just about anywhere north of Florida up to where I live in Michigan. I phucking hate my family for selling there damn house down there because we would be in the money now dammit. I heard the big price jump happened around 2000. Everything was a little less cheaper but all of a sudden Boom....Cousin Tucker trailer went from 40 grand to 100 grand..

2 mins of searching and a trailer for 110 gran..Where Im from they dont cost that much

I rent the upstairs of somebody's house for $300/month in Dearborn. Used to have a 2 bedroom apartment in Westland that was $750. Both are western suburbs of Detroit. The northern burbs are more pricey.

It was on Madison Ave, and no I was at work in mid town. Also, I live far east near the river so I wouldn't have been that close even if I was in my neighborhood.

$1700 for a 1 bedroom in Costa Mesa, CA that I share. Yeah LA people have it pretty much the worse if you don't want to spend 3 hours on a freeway to get to work.
