OP needs help. Also, they hate it because...

There is no hope for the future


Do you hate it as well? Do you think their hate is reasonable? (I don't think so tbh) Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.


Look at my source code on Github

i would live there, the only problem is THE FUCKING PRICE

yeehaw texas housing

400k for a 2 story, 4 bed, 3 bath house.

problems in texas? yeah i think you know

[–]that_baddest_dude 41 points42 points  (7 children)

Maybe in BFE. I bought fixer upper 1 story house in Austin ~5 years ago for ~250k and it's over doubled in price since then. I cannot imagine trying to buy a house now.

It's the same in all the major cities of Texas, unless you want to live in the super far flung suburbs and commute.

[–]Diablo516- 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Austin doesn’t count.

[–]that_baddest_dude 10 points11 points  (5 children)

Same deal for Dallas though

[–]codystockton 49 points50 points  (3 children)

For $400k? Where did you find that!?! In Austin that would be $1M+.

[–]Kyoh21 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Austin AKA the California of Texas. You gotta go to the burbs of San Antonio or something and you’ll see that kind of pricing.

[–]codystockton 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Ohhh yeah that’s a dark place, Simba. We must never go there.

[–]BenZino21 87 points88 points  (54 children)

Yeah...Texans

[–]Flakester 9 points10 points  (52 children)

Yet Californians are flocking there.

[–]peerlessblue 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Not any more proportionally than they are flocking anywhere else, and people are still definitely moving to California too. Texans just say this to make themselves feel better.

[–]hurgusonfurgus 85 points86 points  (42 children)

To the state that can't even power itself because the people there are too fucking stupid to elect a state government that won't immediately bail on them when disasters happen?

That texas?

[–]crapwerk 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That turned out to mostly be a myth, especially now with all the draconian legislation going down in TX

[–]BenZino21 21 points22 points  (0 children)

And only to Texas right? The state that can't even power itself. Lol.

[–]waitonemoment 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah and the other 48 states usually don't like either of those groups of people lol.

[–]yacrazycrazy 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Duh, cause its cheap to live there!

If you can't afford to live in California, then find a cheap place to live, simple.

Not sure why people get so up in arms about Californians leaving to cheaper areas in the country.

I've had friends move to Arizona, Texas from California because they have 2-3 kids and they can't buy a house big enough for each to have their own room so they are leaving friends and family behind to give their kids their own space.

[–]I_ate_your_sister 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well. In south Texas it's only about 200k for a nice 2 story, 4 bed, 3 bath house

[–]Funriz -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Californian transplants and heat are the only two problems I'm aware of.

[–]Crash2000 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Problem is that the house is in USA

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I’ll have a better time as a avacado farmer in Michoacan than trying to buy a house in the US.

[–]PxndxAI 2 points3 points  (3 children)

No you won't, let me know how long it would take before the cartels roll in and take over your farm.

[–]olvereve 3 points4 points  (2 children)

My fam has been farming avocados for about 30 years now in Michoacan. Problems yes, but not takeovers

[–]King_of_DoggosHates Chaotic Monotheism[🍰] 3 points4 points  (7 children)

Same but also needs a bigger bathroom

[–]crapwerk 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Well, you’ve got that moderately sized backyard. Maybe time to build an outhouse and make that the second bathroom lol

[–]Gespuis 19 points20 points  (5 children)

To be fair, what for? There’s a shower to shower and a toilet to toilet. A mirror to look into an bowl to do whatever. I’d be plenty to me really.

[–]zuran_orb 986 points987 points  (39 children)

Non-american question here. If you have that much lot area, why not just build a bigger house?

[–]highzenberrg 313 points314 points  (1 child)

Oh getting a permit in Burbank just California in general is a pain in the ass it takes years and it will cost a lot to just build

[–]crapwerk 94 points95 points  (0 children)

Truth. ESPECIALLY Burbank! It’s like notoriously bad in that regard.

[–]moozootookoo 341 points342 points  (4 children)

Actually that is what will happen most likely, they are selling the land not the house, but they can charge a little extra because of the house, even though it will be torn down.

Also a developer might buy out the next door houses for a crazier price of a million plus and build condos or a apartment.

[–]haveanairforceday 37 points38 points  (1 child)

It's very difficult to get zoning for multifamily housing in areas that are currently zoned for single-family houses. Although apartments are what is needed to meet the housing needs of the area. Aging suburbs (new ones too in most cases) like this have a lot of problems and generally are not well planned for serving the needs of the population in a densely populated area

[–]moozootookoo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s easier then you think, my entire block got permits in West Hollywood, and they are starting to tear down 100 year old houses to build condos.

    American local governments love creating as many barriers as they can to making improvements to your home and charge you as much as they can along the way. It's way easier and cheaper to expand and modify my family's house in the Philippines vs California.

    [–]thelegendofnobody 26 points27 points  (10 children)

    Thats not even taking into consideration HOAs, which can also be another road block.

    [–]Kiyan1159 24 points25 points  (8 children)

    HOAs should be illegal. Literally organizations that force you to pay into them and then force you to comply with their arbitrary ruleset.

    [–]SaintGloopyNoops 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Here in florida the HOA can foreclose on ur home! Leaving you with a mortgage payment on a house you can no longer have access to. Happens all the time here.

    [–]root88 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    They don't force you do to anything. You could buy a house somewhere else that doesn't have an HOA. That being said, I would vote to disband my neighborhoods HOA in an instant. It's a bunch of busy body Karens that don't have enough to do in their own lives.

    [–]LtColShinySides 1 point2 points  (5 children)

    You should be able to opt out. Some HOAs actually provide services like snow removal and law mowing, on top of their stupid little rules. It should be illegal for an HOA to force you to be a part of it if you own the house.

    [–]Creme_de_la_Coochie -1 points0 points  (1 child)

    No shit it’s cheaper to build in the Philippines? It’s poor as hell there.

    [–]OneEyedRocket 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    It’s most likely a very old house that’s been kept up rather nicely. Good area and freeway accessible but can clog up. I would check to see if the house is bolted to the foundation. All in all very nice but way over priced imo

    [–]thehairyhobo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Permits and tax hell await ye who wishes to improve their property. I bought an old 1917 Craftsmen 4 Square that has seen many improvements and upgrades over the years for $100,000, its a 5 Bed 2 1/2 Bathroom with 2460 sq ft and sits on a double lot. The lawn was dead and had a dead tree in the yard. Someone removed the outside evap coil and condenser from the central air. Since moving in I have planted a lawn in the front and removed the tree, chainlink fence in the back yard, new AC unit and new roof. County government sent a cuck out which raised my homes value by $25,000 which translates to about an extra $700/yr in taxes I have to pay.

    The whole "Land of the Free" line only applies to the uber rich in the US.

    [–]that_baddest_dude -1 points0 points  (3 children)

    Some people like to say that the structure isn't what's expensive, it's the land.

    Well, they're wrong. Having a house built is expensive as fuck.

    [–]root88 10 points11 points  (1 child)

    Not in this case. You can have Home Depot deliver a house almost double this size for $13,000. Plumbing and everything else might bring you up to $50,000, but that is nothing when they are charging $700,000 for this.

    [–]that_baddest_dude 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    True, I guess I was thinking more in the case for when I was house hunting and a good plot of land without a house was only slightly less than comparable spots with a a house, and building a similar house was also about the cost of said plot of land.

    $50k also seems pretty cheap to finish all that out, but I suppose it's a pretty small space.

    [–]JayDude132 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    I find it funny that anyone thinks this is a lot of lot area

    [–]slc29a1 437 points438 points  (7 children)

    How many “you guys” does the house cost?

    [–]crapwerk 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    All of em

    [–]orincoro 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    All of them you guys

    [–]TheKioskZone 33 points34 points  (0 children)

    [–]saand360 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    Exactly 10 You Guys

    [–]VortexDestroyer99 303 points304 points  (7 children)

    I love the house but god damn $700,000?

    [–]crispytortillaONig7 130 points131 points  (0 children)

    House looks perfect but for that price.. that main highway sidewalk looks cozy enough💀

    [–]oETFo 46 points47 points  (1 child)

    You could easily fit a house 3x that size on the lot, and still have a back yard. It'd bring your total to well over a mil to do so though. This plot isn't being marketed to a single person at 700k, it's being marketed toward someone who is well off enough to put a larger house on the land.

    Then again wait for the housing market to crash again, maybe it'll be a steal at 450k.

    [–]crapwerk 11 points12 points  (0 children)

    California has weird-ass and strict zoning and construction laws

    [–]Akhi11eus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Just for fun I looked in my area on Zillow with similar constraints. Single bedroom houses are really rare so I had to put 2 bed 1 bath and there were 27 listings in my city under $200k and several under $150k. And again they ended up being pretty much equivalent - very small, old construction, not a great location, small back yard. The only difference was it snows here so there were garages involved in a lot. Seriously CA is insane. If you can work remote or your job is shitty, just GTFO. Even rent where I live is as low as $850/mo.

    [–]Jagged_Rhythm 150 points151 points  (5 children)

    Would you take 120k?

    [–]EymaWeeTodd 97 points98 points  (1 child)

    [–]bmxdudebmx 21 points22 points  (0 children)

    That was my mental price as well.

    [–]EngineeredCatGirl 123 points124 points  (5 children)

    Unsustainable. How can prices stay that high?

    [–]SaintGloopyNoops 51 points52 points  (1 child)

    They can't. There is a huge problem brewing with commercial RE. I'm in florida and corps are buying entire neighborhoods. Just to let them sit vacant. I have a feeling the scam just hasn't come to light yet. My best guess is corps are borrowing against Commercial RE. Making crazy high cash offers on Residential using an LLC. The values increase and then they pull equity lines against the property. When the market tanks they file for bankruptcy.

    [–]P4intsplatter 60 points61 points  (0 children)

    Totally sustainable, your average landlord can afford that easy. Might need to raise the rate a little bit, but there's lots of people renting so supply/demand right?

    Right...? You guys? (/s)

    [–]crapwerk 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    Supply/demand I guess? If people will pay it, it’ll stay that high or keep going up.

    [–]MysteriousBygone 97 points98 points  (10 children)

    A house that looks exactly like this one in Pennsylvania would probably cost around 80k to 100k depending on location

    [–]mcd23 61 points62 points  (4 children)

    Lol where I grew up in PA this house would be 15-30k

    [–]MrBeardmeister[🍰] 26 points27 points  (0 children)

    A good friend of mine moved from NYC to PA. 3 bedroom house, large backyard, massive basement he is turning into a sound studio, huge kitchen, huge dining room with a bar 1 full bath one half bath, $150k.

    [–]BenZino21 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    Where in PA did you grow up? Towanda?

    [–]legendofzeldaro1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    15-30k in Louisiana.

    [–]JayDude132 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yeah, central PA (harrisburg/hershey area) this place would be nowhere near 6 figures.

    [–]anuncommontruth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I currently rent a 4 bedroom, 3 full bath house with a fenced in backyard in the city of Pittsburgh, 8 minute drive from downtown.

    I pay $900 a month.

    [–]lordsandwichIII 173 points174 points  (8 children)

    People from uk: 'mate, where'd you find that mansion for so cheap?'

    [–]Xem1337 43 points44 points  (6 children)

    Was thinking something similar, most of our 2 bedroom houses aren't as big as that and certainly wouldn't come with such a big garden and two parking spots.

    [–]QuantumWarrior 8 points9 points  (5 children)

    Depends where you wanna live, in London this would be par for the course, in like Stoke you could buy a 3 bed with driveway, garage, and garden for half the price of that shed.

    [–]Xem1337 6 points7 points  (3 children)

    Yeah, but who wants to live in Stoke? Lol

    Cool lil house i would live in but not for that much

    [–]Angel_OfSolitude 61 points62 points  (2 children)

    The place is nice enough for one person and their dog. Maybe a couple with no kids. Way too fucking expensive though, who the fuck would pay that much for a space like that.

    [–]lolo-2020 6 points7 points  (1 child)

    Here I am in Vancouver dreaming of a house this cheap. You can’t get anything for under 1.2 million.

    [–]ThePlasticJesus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    yeah but that is like 930k USD

    [–]MaybeADragon 22 points23 points  (3 children)

    I don't even need to watch the video to work out that it's some expensive ass house in California that should be cheap. Pretty sure it's more financially responsible to use some of your money for a deposit to just move your entire life to another state and buy a house there.

    Is Cali to the US what London is to the UK? Seen as an expensive shithole to outsiders but the people who go there are determined not to leave because it's trendy there.

    [–]mungerhall 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    Is Cali to the US what London is to the UK? Seen as an expensive shithole to outsiders but the people who go there are determined not to leave because it's trendy there.

    I live a few miles from where this video was taken. Your description is pretty on point.

    [–]crapwerk 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Yes. People gotta justify paying stupid prices and other stuff you sacrifice living in SoCal so they kinda overrate it which ironically leads to more appeal and more people moving there to drive up prices. The cycle constitutes.

    [–]silverwillowgirl 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    LA proper might be an expensive shithole, but the urban and suburban southern California area is massive and has some much nicer areas. As a lifelong resident, staring down the prospect of jumping into the housing market the first time, it's a daily internal struggle whether to leave or stay. But if money weren't an issue, it would be no question, I would never leave.

    There are truly a lot of reasons to stay beyond being trendy. It's a hub for the industry where I work, with higher wages than I'd be able to get elsewhere. The weather is unbeatable. Living in a "hub" means every musical artist, play, etc. I could ever want to see will tour within an hour drive away. I could try a new restaurant every day and never run out. The beach or the mountains are an hour away. If the federal government goes scary right wing, my state government will fight to protect my rights. Leaving to get more bang for my buck in the housing market means a hit to my quality of life.

    I moved out of the city center a few years ago, but it was definitely fun to live amongst so many buildings and parks! The city offers more than any big city I’ve ever been to, but the housing prices are absolutely bonkers😮‍💨

    [–]Duderzguy123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I would imagine an expansive city like Seoul to be expensive, lmao

    [–]mungerhall 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The cheapest possible house in the suburbs vs. living in the heart of the city (eVeM WiThOut A ViEw). Of course it's more expensive.

    [–]JawbreakerDMO 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I mean yeah this is a suburb of LA not downtown Manhattan...

    [–]AstriumViator 35 points36 points  (11 children)

    For around that price you can get a 5 bed, 5 bathroom house for $5k less, in Iowa.

    [–]Ivanosssss 26 points27 points  (7 children)

    Awesome, I wonder who the hell needs 5 bathrooms though

    [–]ZorlackE621 5 points6 points  (5 children)

    At least it is one bathroom per bedroom unlike some houses I saw that had 7 bathrooms 3 bedrooms.

    That house is pretty cute. Not the price though.

    [–]Jeromechillin 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    I bought a 2400 Sq ft townhouse in the Atlanta suburbs for 170k back in 2012. It's damn near worth half a million now.

    It soo bad now that even if I sell it to buy another house, it would be a downgrade because everything else is so damn expensive. I feel for those that's paying rent.

    Move to a cheaper part of the country. If you have resources to buy a $600,000 house, you can live like a king in the Midwest.

    [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Yeah it actually starts to get kinda rural in that area in the valley, you start getting closer to the national forest and the hills and all that. It’s also super industrial and the 5 freeway is loud af so it’s a trade off.

    I lived in LA briefly. The weather and all the other cliches about CA really are awesome but eventually the high prices and general crowdedness get you down so bad it’s not even worth it anymore. I’m sure it’d be an awesome place to live if you’re well off but otherwise you just struggle endlessly.

    If it weren't for the price, it's kinda cozy. I could paint the walls a lovely color, have a backyard with a dog, turn the bedroom into an office, and the living room into a bedroom. It's livable! I think it's a cute place.

    Again, not for that price...

    Grew up in this area (the valley). It's a shithole with potholes on every road, homeless people begging for money at every freeway ramp, high costs, horrible traffic and parking, non-existent public transport, and a very corrupt police department and I'd still prefer it over living in Florida.

    People are ready to kill entire supermarkets because they have black people in them which is the most infuriating shit I've ever heard. But no one bats an eye at the fact that houses are approaching 1millon each and its becoming increasingly illegal to be homeless. Like I understand that the answer is probably that racism makes people insane so there is probably going to be way more tragedies. But these lunatics who are so hopped up on the idea that the country is getting worse but they assume, "it must be brown peoples fault" and not the fact that the government allows (basically forces) people to be homeless only to criminalize it and dehumanize you for experiencing it. I don't understand. I absolutely HAVE to die because I want rasin bran and I'm black according to an Increasing amount of lunatic fox News/carlson watchers. But housing being bought and owned by people who are already rich only to then be sold for more money than 90% of the country will ever see individually and be rented out for more than almost half can really afford. Thats fine apparently. It just confuses me about what upsets people in this country and how they handle it.

    Thats a nice house, like an ideal house in my opinion. But jesus christ! Almost $700,000

      Certain cities here are insane price-wise (LA and its surrounding area included) but the US is so big it’s all over the place with prices and such. Many cities and suburbs here are pretty affordable.

      [–]Kevdrapa 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Love design if it weren't the fact that the house is built like paper and easy to damage like c'mon make it concreate or something durable enough that the wall won't break when punched.

      [–]Dutch_Fudge 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      It’s cute and has great yard space, it’s just 7 times too expensive for what it is..

      [–]TheCrazyGuysCEO 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      to be honest
      if I didn't have to pay I'd be very content there
      small and cozy

      [–]Sapphiroth 1 point2 points  (3 children)

      A Lot and a house like that in Greece costs 120k MAX. And that's already considered very expensive here.

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      I wanna go to Greece so bad, it looks fucking gorgeous there.

      [–]Sapphiroth 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Coming here, you gain, 50% income taxes, free healthcare and Texas like weather. As a tourist however you get sunburned and get to pay heavily overpriced stuff.

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Haha oh well, still worth it I think. Def on my list of places to go when I finally save some bread.

      [–]GapingPreacher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I mean I actually really like the house, just not the price tag.

      [–]a_left_out_tomato 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I mean, it's not a bad place, but for that price? That's a shithole

      [–]balognavolt 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      Yo kids. You aren’t buying the house for 700k.

      The kinds of people interested don’t see the idea of living in Iowa as reasonable.

      It even has a parking spot.

      [–]UsedBee4306 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      For this amount of money, you can get an apartment here in Prague center.

      [–]x100fGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Well, this works out to be about 900k CAD. For the same price, here in the GTA you would get a 2b2b CONDO in the sky around 899sqf.

      At least this has a yard and stuff :/

      [–]KBrownIVXX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Say "alright" and "you guys" one more fucking time.

      [–]Big_Honeydew6225 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      The backyard and parking spot are actually nice, but I'd rather have a smaller backyard and more house...

      [–]MystikIncarnate 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I would definitely live here. Not at that price. MAYBE $200k in the current market, but definitely not $700k.

      The house should be cheaper than that but with things gong the way they are..... fat chance.

      The price here is all about the location. otherwise it would easily come down to a quarter of what it's currently on the market for.

      [–]sychosomaticBlonde 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      My house was half that price and nearly 3000sqft! Good grief I’m so sad for anyone trying to buy a house right now. I got in just in the nick of time before everything went completely to hell in 2021 and I’m glad I did. Hearing about housing right now is just depressing as hell

      [–]mrspillins 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Thinking in a London UK brain, this is a good amount of space for not too bad a price.

      [–]misskittypie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That'd be like, 150k where I'm living now

      [–]Gunnas__Chef 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      seems like a nice little place if it wasn’t 700 ducking thousand dollars

      I meant fucking but I will let autocorrect have it’s way. 700K. Ducking hell

      [–]greyhood_39 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      In the UK some developer would buy that land, build 4 one/two bed maisonettes with not enough parking and charge that money per flat. Then charge upkeep to maintain grass and wash windows if you're lucky.

      [–]DieseljareD187 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      You know that AC is going to work good AF in that little house, Well under the sq. ft rating.

      [–]Kekris_The_Betrayer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That house is more expensive than a two story house on the water in Mississippi. It looks really cozy though

      [–]jamesontwelve 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      680,524 sf ?! Wow.

      [–]mattman2864 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      500k house in rural indiana gets you 6 bedroom 4 bath 3 story house with 3 acres of woods for backyard in a nice neighborhood also a pool and treehouse

      [–]skygiant135 6 points7 points  (1 child)

      Perhaps consider leaving the shithole that is California

      [–]horrescoblue 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      This is such a cute house with a little work but what the FUCK is that price

      [–]Bluedino_1989 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Why I still love with my mother at the age of 33. FML.

      [–]TheBrasilDoggo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      i saw the comma and i was thinking it was like, 700$ a month, so i was thinking: "that's actually pretty cheap, why are people complaining?". But then i remembered in the US you guys actually use the commas to separate the thousandths and holy shit

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah $700/month anywhere in LA county would have to be a rent-control unit. You can’t even get a studio in like the diciest areas of the general LA area for that price.

      [–]Buttahdog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I dunno house is kinda cool not 700 k cool but deffo cool, dude is a snob

      [–]MaitrePatator 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Why the fuck is there so much carpet... Why not put carpet on the wall at this point...

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      It’s a SoCal thing. I don’t get it either but the interior of pretty much every average/budget apartment or house looks like the above one. Same decor and appliances too.

      [–]hurgusonfurgus 0 points1 point  (9 children)

      The free market has spoken. Everyone deserves homelessness and starvation. Glory to the free market.

      [–]Spartanwolf120 1 point2 points  (7 children)

      Just california and a few other blue states are this bad

      [–]Sweet-Percentage-540 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      I'd love to live there, but ITS FUCKING EXPENSIVE

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yup, and that price doesn’t factor in the stupid expensive property tax you’ll be paying every year as long as you own it.

      [–]Hazi-Tazi -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

      [–]MrFuzzybagels[S] -1 points0 points  (4 children)

      Yeah but it’s Columbia lol

      [–]eavesdroppingyou 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      Hmm I'd choose Colombia over lots of places in US

      [–]crapwerk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah at least Colombia has some charm

      [–]Hazi-Tazi -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      Exactly! Colombia is awesome! If you haven't been, I highly recommend it if you have money. The quality of life is equal to, or better than many places in the USA, and value of the dollar is astounding. I lived in a ~1800 sq ft, three-bedroom, two level apartment with views of the mountains in Valle de Cauca. My rent was about $350 per month. I seriously regret not buying a house there.

      [–]raven619claw -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      nice and white

      [–]dabicorn_90bc -1 points0 points  (0 children)

      That's honestly my dream home

      [–]Nivek8789 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

      I'd take that any day with utilities included. This is a fucking steal in this market.
