Yeah, I didn't say this to be obnoxious, I'm just happy I'm here firmly rooted before the white people gentrify and push us out like they did back at home Ermm (DC).

lol.. i cant remember the name of the show, its the one where they go to 3 properties and at the end they tell you the price. Im from NYC so i would pass out seeing those 5 b/3 bath homes with a finished basement for $400,000 with an underground pool Ouch.. i either want that or a 1000sq ft condo its apples and apples to me

house hunters i think

I love the thought of a small condo in the heart of the city and a comfortable weekend home in a rural area.

You know, I probably didn't read in-depth enough but I hope this article highlighted age in this phenomena.

Because older generations are the ones who love it here, move out here, and stay here. Also families looking for a cleaner and more stable environment.

But if you're young and or getting your wings warmed, it's terrible because it's awfully boring and the job market isn't exactly accepting due to an over-saturation of people.

I live less than a mile outside city limits.  I love it.  Quiet.  Safe.  Gorgeous manicured trails, live by a lake.  My kids schools are amazing.  They can play outside.  The house is big enough that we ain't breathing up in each other's faces all the time.

BUT when we want to shop, go on fun dates, drink too much and need to get a cab home - it ain't that far.  Best of both worlds.

These taxes though.....
