I guess mhays is SSP's stereotypical "tough guy". Noted.
There's an easy solution for that. Thank you ignore list.
Called on what
, exactly? Is it my fault you extrapolated what I said to mean every single neighborhood
in the city? (which is pretty moronic if you ask me) I thought I didn't have to spell every single thing out, I guess so. I guess I should have specified that Englewood
isn't exactly a happening neighborhood. My apologies.
As for $431k, it's not debatable aside from what "not a lot" means. I said "average," not "median." Average income is probably higher than you think, and I'm betting you haven't bought a place before. Factor in a normal down payment and a household earning "not a lot more than average" (say $90,000 compared to Cook County's 70,000-something) can be below a traditional 4x multiplier.
Uhh, and I've bought a place before. My wife and I make a combined 65k, and we BARELY
can afford a small condo in a decent neighbood, just the two of us (and our interest rate is an absurd 3.5%). Not to mention we don't even have kids or a car or tuition to worry about yet.
I'm betting you love your air of superiority. Sorry my views don't match yours, but no need to patronize me.
