People will do anything to avoid just building more houses.
Trump has real estate in your head that can't be matched ..People that go to public meetings and rant about blocking new development in their neighborhoods are almost as bad as people that do to Trump rallies and chant "Build a Wall"
It is really the explicit display xenophobia and racism that makes one group slightly worse
But the gap is smaller than most people think
8 years ago I would’ve agreed, but even the Bronx getting gentrified crazy. They’re building up parts of the South Bronx that hit for as much as Manhattan places.Upper Manhattan. Been here or 8 years. It depends on the building of course.
Bronx is the cheapest yep. East New York yep. We know why though.
Wild. NYC got some hidden gems for the low. Good thing it's under the radar cuz all these transplants would gobble them up
These transplants just want to brag that they lived in the city like it's a badge of honorEven with the high incomes, I think about what kind of property you can get 45 minutes outside of the city for a $4-5K/month mortgage and it makes the idea of dropping that much on a 1-bedroom even sillier.
Yeah, your argument is not making sense to me. First, it seemed like you are saying liberals use their power to keep others out, a causation argument. But when presented with an example where they don't have power and the same rental increases are happening your argument shifts to claiming that their mere presence of them is what is causing the issue, which is a correlation argument.I understand what you’re saying,
But Miami is one city in a larger county that’s part of a larger metro that is the bluest part of a very red state. I lived there for 25 years. Even before the pandemic, the miami metro was by far the most unaffordable part of a large state.
Once prices rebounded after the Great Recession, if you wanted a piece of land, and didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for it, you had to move north, into the redder part of the state.
