No joke. You can by sweet, huge, early 19th century home in Wichita for like 160k but then you'd have to live in Wichita. Yuk!!!!! I'd rather live in a trailer park in FoCo and enjoy the landscape, weather and adventure sports access.

Try Collbran, Cedaredge, Montrose or Paonia Western Colorado.
Definately one of the most beautiful and less expensive areas of Colorado.

Coloradohh hit it on the money w/last response.

All the folks going on about relativity are duped. Credit is the sole reason this madness is allowed to occur. That and the madness of the average Joe who thinks because he can get a mortgage for a $150,000 home that he should.

The average Joe working at the average Joe salary is NOT going to pay for that home in his lifetime. That is simple math. But because simple math is beyond the average Joe, and the average banker knows this, the whole merry-go-round keeps spinning.

Uhm, hello? Did no one in America learn anything from the first housing bubble? Is there anybody home???

I'm afraid you're correct and therefore, I'm afraid.

Living in a state of fear won't change the situation for the better. You are only hurting yourself by hanging out in a state of fear. You'll do more good for yourself by following the great advice of Bobby McFerrin....Don't worry - be happy!

@CosmicWizard I cannot be happy about ppl and govs who live beyond their means, drive up prices artificially and then crash the system. Nope. Can't be happy with that.

^^^^I have no desire to limit your right to be unhappy if that's what you choose. Simply pointing out that being unhappy is not a healthy place to be. If you are unhappy about one thing, you'll keep finding other things to be unhappy about. Unhappiness leads to more unhappiness. It's a vicious circle!

And here's the other side of the coin.....when you are in a happy state of mind, you keep noticing other things to be happy about.

I'm not totally unhappy. My house is paid for and I'm grateful I had the wisdom and perseverance to do it.

So, maybe you're in the wrong forum @CosmicWizard? Maybe you should be on the streets spreading your msg of peace, love and optimism with those who are foreclosed and homeless... to those who just need one more loan and this time it'll work...

Don't get me wrong. I know there's ppl who are less to blame than others, and I'm not without a heart, but tough love is better than another loan any day of the week.
