Your only problem is that demand will stay high for housing in DC. All the people (even the negroes) who come to town with a new administration will need a place to live. And with gas at $1.7 million/gallon, paying a premium to live in the city will make sense. On the other hand, some of the other stuff seems likely to happen. So there's that.

That's where the surprise comes from me. I've lived in the Bay Area and New York and found New York at least to have slightly cheaper (shared apartment/house sublet) rent and cheaper (non-sit-down-and-be-served-at-the-table-restaurant) food. People with higher class tastes and actual social lives might disagree with my assessment. Just as there seem to be more things to spend less on in New York than in DC, there are surely more things to spend more on.

I signed an offer for a house today. The asking is probably a good $200k under what it would have been a year ago, and I offered $45k below asking plus cash back blah blah. I doubt they'll accept that, but I don't think they'll get their asking price, which is about 30% off from a year ago.

I, for one, am thrilled. And I don't feel bad for profiting off someone's foreclosure, either, b/c it belonged to a 95 year old woman who owned it outright and had lived in it for 23 years, so her heirs are going to pocket a nice chunk of change regardless.

Congrats on the offer. Stressful yet relieving at the same time.

I hope the sellers don't accept it and you can come back and lowball them in a few months, or that they sell it to you immediately at less than your asking.

My sense of the DC metro area was that it was a comparative backwater at least through the 1970s and that it was during the "hogs feeding from the trough" Reagan administration that both the beltway sprawl and incredible rise in housing pricesreally got going in high gear*. Much as I hate to share a pont-of-view with John McCain, but last time I flew through Dulles**, I looked down at the sprawl around the airport and could not help but view it as a physical manifestation of pure evil.

Bitch is saying she doesn't have to feel guilty about buying a house that was foreclosed on, because the house she's trying to buy wasn't foreclosed on. Geez, people.

And one thing that makes NY livable, expense-wise, is that it's (I have the impression, rather than any data) geographically compact enough that areas poor people live are reasonably conveniently accessible from areas rich people live. It's still not cheap, but there's a lot of stuff for sale aimed at a large market of people who aren't rich, and for those of us who aren't, that makes life practical. (I haven't lived for any really extended period of time anyplace else, so maybe everyplace is like this, But the way people talk about the Bay Area, it sounds more economically residentially segregated, in terms of shopping and such.)

But the way people talk about the Bay Area, it sounds more economically residentially segregated, in terms of shopping and such.

It isn't, exactly, it's just that pretty much the whole city is gentrified (rather like Manhattan, really), and the lack of a good subway means that outlying areas (approximately equivalent to the boroughs) are difficult enough to get to that people who can afford it live as close in as they can. Also, the older, denser neighborhoods are much smaller, so that you get into traditional sprawl much sooner, which (a) pushes everything out and (b) gives people the idea that they could drive another little bit, here, and be able to live in a nice single family.

There are western cities with basically no geographical stratification (e.g. Vegas) that still aren't particularly livable; unless you have both the density and the transit there's not much you can do.

LA, of course, is very dense but also uncentralized, has lots of geographical stratification, and has practically zero transit from most parts of the city. So it hits the trifecta of crappy planning.

Maybe back in the day, by buying a foreclosed house, you are creating a market which thrives by ruthlessly kicking people out. But it seems in this market, there are certainly home-owners who are acting in their best interests to fold and get out of a horrible situation.

Foreclosures don't equal cheap homes. There is never equity in the property (if there were, there wouldn't be a foreclosure!), and the judgment obtained by the lending institution is almost always in excess of the property's value because attorney's fees and other costs are included. Sheriff's sales almost always end with the lender bidding its judgment, obtaining title to the home, and then selling it for less on the market.

[in a rapid narrator voice]
Gay sex is not for everyone. Do not try gay sex if you have a heterosexual marriage or a family history of homophobia. Avoid driving or operating heavy machinery while engaging in gay sex. Before trying gay sex, tell your doctor about any symptoms of hemmorhoids, constipation, or flatulence. Possible side effects of gay sex include Santorum, stigmatization from certain social groups, various legal disabilities, and dissatisfaction with your interior decorating scheme. In rare cases, gay sex has resulted in death from violent attacks by ignoramuses. Gay sex is not recommended for children under the age of consent. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should consult with their doctor about the risks and benefits of gay sex.

Actually, she's been lobbying to get a girl rat to breed with her boy rat because it would be educational. I'm (bizarrely) considering it.

From the link in #178:

"Of all of life's many funs, Bill loved to toy with caramels, especially sticky ones. The day was warm, the caramels—a large and dusky pile which lay a-snoozing in the sun made Bill sweetly smile. He braced himself for one big butt, as gazing up aloft he murmured, 'Ah, ye caramels, I love you good and soft!'"

DK DO NOT BREED YOUR RAT. One mistake sexing the offspring, and it's endless rats all the way down.

Unless (1) you are really ready to enter into an ongoing rat breeding program and (2) Rory is really willing to cull, both of which I seriously doubt.

Re. guilt and foreclosures, Cala got it right. And by "foreclosures" I meant short sales, etc.--anything that basically means some poor fucker way overpaid for a house, as we would have done if we could have afforded to do so a couple of years ago, and now found themselves losing their home. Good sense to get out or not, it's gotta fucking suck.

203: Well, given my propensity for making mistakes with the sexing of vermin... Seriously, thanks for reinforcing that fear. The books, magazines, webpages (the kid has been doing her homework!) make that task sound soooooo easy and, you know, cute little helpless baby rats that are so cute and it's educational mom! Still, I feel way guilty that we bought a single rat who has no playmates and will apparently fight any boy playmates to the death and will need fixing ("vaccinating") before he can have a girl playmate...

The solution to this is not one but two new pets: a female rat and a nice cuddly snake. My son thinks ball pythons are very cool (but can't have one--importing an illegal animal is a felony here).

207: She originally wanted a snake, actually. And when I told her we would have to feed it cuddly little mice, she said "Maybe we could just feed it male ones." Because she's a feminist. But she didn't get a snake. Because even boy mice are cute and cuddly.
