Yeah, that pretty well sums it up.

I live in a boring suburb in fly-over country. Nobody *particularly* wants to live here... but it's low-crime, decent schools, an easy commute to a mid-size city. On a 15 year mortgage we're paying significantly less than the OP's price for a 1 bedroom apartment.

I prefer financial security over a cool zip code. Some people choose otherwise.
