When i watch HGTV and i see these palatial mansions in Texas for $220k and the people are complaining it's too expensive, i want to hop through the TV and smack them. But then, there are always two sides to a coin right? Those Condos in Manhattan that are 750 sq ft that people pay $2000. a month for... i guess someone else always has it worse.
Your salary here is probably double what an average Texan makes.
I get upset when I look at my brother's house back in Des Moines and realizes his mortgage on 8800 sq. feet is less than half of what we pay for a one bedroom apt in Central Square.
But then I realize... he's stuck in Iowa.
