Haven't yet been priced out of my beloved Ballard neighborhood (I've rented the same apt there for 12 years now), but I'm waiting for the day I get a letter saying they're tearing down the building to make shiny, new expensive condos or apartments.

So time to start shopping while I'm not under pressure. Hoo boy.


i'll be passing through next week. but literally passing through -- i'm being brought to some lake in the Cascades, and have brutal flights. i'll try and wave again.

i still have no idea why i never lived there -- i always sort of assumed it would happen given where i grew up and my chosen field, but i've made it work in DC for over a decade now and life has happened. it's hardly cheap here, but it's still like 1/3rd less than NYC or SF. reading what you've written, it kind of solidifies the decision that Memphis and i have made about NYC -- unless someone wants to, like, double my salary, there's little that could get us to move there at this point in our lives, especially when it's an easy train ride away and a perfect weekend trip. if we did move, it would be to head to the West Coast and really change our lifestyles. there are times when the East Coast combination of blizzards, humidity, and congestion make one long for the cool air off the Pacific. but then again, i like that i can walk everywhere.

maybe we should start an FYM real estate thread.
It is crazy... Everytime we travel and either he a VRBO or visit friends in other cities and find out what they have for what they've paid it does make us want to vomit a little. Eventually you remind yourself that "yea, but it's Cleveland" and the small space in NY doesn't seem so bad anymore.

We've actually looked at DC. Wife has family in Arlington and went to school at GW, so we're in the area often. Might still be the plan at some point... but I'm with you, if we're going to move I'd prefer to just pack up and hear out somewhere with minimal snow and minimal humidity.

Near record heat this weekend. Triple digit temps and high humidity pushing heat indexes towards 110.

It may one day be worth 8 months of clouds to avoid such meteorological atrocities.

Or go to San Diego, where both summer is 75, winter is 65, and clouds don't exist except for the beautiful and refreshing summer marine layer.

Or you could come to Newport Beach, I just leased out this property for $4500 a month

You can still buy it, though I think I may have it sold to a money manager from Pimco

That's a fantastic property. Needs a gay's touch, but great bones. ;-)

Absolutely great bones, it's across the alley from me. Lucia, the lady that owned it moved in in 1956. She had two sons, 8 and 12, she had the 3 bedrooms, living-room and art studio added on the front doubling the square feet. The sliding paper walls are way cool. Anyways she passed away a year ago she was 98 and her son came down and I help them rehab it to lease out and sell. Great bones is correct. Buyer might scrape it and build 2 condos on the lot.
