When Boise, Idaho leads the list as “The Least Affordable Housing Market in the U.S.,” something’s not quite right. Don’t get me wrong—Boise has access to it all. But least affordable in the U.S.? Hear that sucking sound? It’s Boise, and places like it, pulling all the monied “residents” from San Fran, Portland, Seattle, and Rte. 128 (outside of Boston) into the community. They’re looking to places of freedom like New Hampshire, Texas, and Florida, to name a few. They’re looking for a big backyard and a playground for the weekend or for six months and a day.
But what is affordable? I wouldn’t say New Hampshire. You’d be hard-pressed to find a nice home to raise your family in for less than, say, $375,000 in my favored North Conway area. That’s not exactly cheap, even when considering a dual-income household.
How much did you pay for your first home? Many of you paid about what you earned in a year. That’s not happening today. But when the Silicon Valley gang can buy every house on your street without a blink, something’s not right. It’s hard to get a street hockey game going when half the houses on your street are empty 11-months of the year.
Action Line: Starting a family. Belonging to a community. It used to be as simple as apple pie. Not anymore. The left wants what you have and what they have, and what they can’t have. And they’re bringing their politics with them. The same politics that ruined their own backyard. Find your freedom now.
