    I lived in Houston for a couple of years. 6 months of 90-90 days. 90 degrees with 90% humidity.

    Of course, given what’s going on in the plains states right now, it doesn’t seem so bad.

    The first summer I lived here one of the local radio stations used to do the weather like this: "And now the weather. You know the drill" and that was it.

    I know what you mean. “Today will be in the 90s, with 90% humidity, and a 20% chance of rain.”

    Every fricking day, lol.

    Where are you in Houston? I was up north. Spring, TX actually. But I worked downtown at Greenway Plaza. What a fun commute.

    Thats totally weird, cuz work in greenway plaza and live up northwest in Cypress. They have pretty much finished the 10 year 290 expansion though so it isn't quite the nightmare it was. Plus they have dual purpose HOV/bus lane and i ride a motorcycle 8- 9 months a year so that saves a bunch of time. Wouldn't live off of 45 for any amount, though one of the guys i work with does live in Spring.

    It just so happens that Spring was the fastest growing city in the country in 2017 IIRC. High in the mid nineties, low in the seventies, slight chance of rain. Yeah

    I hear the "fastest growing city" thing around here too..its been booming and totally transforming from country/burbs to rush hour traffic environment.
    From 25yr home owners to leasee's and junk burbs. Funny when I moved here the "country folk with horses were moving out because "we" arrived with our tract homes everywhere".....now its my turn I guess?

    Not all bad, having the stores is ok, home depots , etc...a lot of restaurants. A healthy Craigslist of used gear. Speaking of that I need to sell some stuff sitting around. preamps, studio speakers, and junk....

    My daughter put her house on the market last Friday. As of yesterday she had 3 offers on it. One for asking price, one for $20k over asking price, and one for $30k over asking price.

    I’m completely shocked.

    Of course they haven’t found a new place yet, and I think her husband is getting cold feet about moving at all. Wtf? A little late in the process maybe, lol. The real estate agent went back to all 3 buyers and told them she would present their “best and final” offers today.

    It's a seller's market here as well. Sales are down, but it's because of lack of inventory. My across the alley neighbor sold his house on the first day for over the asking price. The problem is when you go to buy a house it becomes a wash.

    Yep, it’s all funny money in the end.

    I had a friend who was talking about alimony once. His take was thst there was actually only one guy who really paid alimony, the rest just passed it around.

    Since I never remarried, I guess I was the guy who paid.

    Its sellers market in North Dallas too.
    For me its no good, Ive been here forever and the house is run down and the "appraisal" goes up and up and up....
    Last time I fought city apprasiers the real estate agent said my house was under $60k of appraisal but...the City Tax crew sent me a letter saying the decided my house was appraised right. Its tripled in value in 25 almost to the dollar.
    I suppose I need to get a Real Estate reviewer to check my place again.
    The thing is when I fought the appraisal and won, the amount was $10k lowered and then savings wasn't much.

    Im paying about $6k taxes for 1/8 acre lot, with house....its ridiculous. Texas doesn't have state tax, but they bone you on property taxes to make up for it.

    If you don't plan on selling your house there is no advantage to a higher appraisal.

    During the 00's housing boom a lot of people were buying out of their price range rationalizing that it's their retirement account. Stupid, stupid, stupid. There's going to be a glut of McMansions in the future. Some people identify with their house or their car and I guess it's a personal choice, but it's not a good financial decision. Besides paying more for the home you are paying more for taxes and more for interest, not to mention energy and upkeep bills. If you put that money into some kind of financial account you would be w-a-y ahead. Of course you wouldn't get to live in a big house, again a personal choice.

    I'm somewhat taken aback when I hear people say their house isn't big enough. I grew up in an age where a family of eight would get raised in a cigar box home. We had six in our family, I shared a bedroom and we only had one bathroom.

    The trend around here has move from a focus on the suburbs and country to city living. People want to be near things and be able to socialize. I was at a wedding and in a conversation with another guest the guy told me that he could never live in the city and that he hated it. I told him I liked it because I like to go out and do things. His wife had this sad look on her face.

    The Wisconsin Illinois border has a lot of housing development on the Wisconsin side. A lot of people work in Illinois but live in Wisconsin because the housing and cost of living are so much cheaper here.
