Buffalo and WNY is if not, the most affordable real estate area in the country. No real RE boom here, just steady, steady, steady, as are the prices. Now the taxes on the other hand.... shheesh!

Wow. Prices are not too bad in the Buffalo area, but tiny lots for the most part I see. How bad are the taxes there?

Look at the cities north of Milwaukee. Not even dropping, just remaining steady around 100K. Oshkosh, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Manitowoc. Those are very liveable, old-style cities, with low crime rates and good schools.

The Bay Area's median home price is down $230,000 falling to $650,000 from $880,000. Now is a great time to buy.

Wow. Only $650k.

You can get 3 hours with that money around here, at least.

That was my first thought as well. Only around here that would buy 5 or 6 average houses. Or one with a few hundred acres.
