It was a high school trip with Bands of America and we were staying downtown at the Embassy Suites (I think?) and I don't remember much. I remember that we thought the glass elevators in the lobby were cool and that EVERY DAY we had chicken and rice to eat. We were stumped why we had to eat some variation of it EVERY DAY. Even the plane served it.
I've never been to the Embassy Suites so I dont know about the glass elevator. Thats odd? chicken everyday including the plane ride?

Sheesh Tigger, you need to find you a man! Get them bills straight and get a new townhome/home or something. That sounds horrible, I'd move back in with Mom/Dad before I dealt with that.!

LOL...I am married but the economy stinks. I have a job that pays decently but he does not at this time. The bills are straight but housing up here is very expensive. I saw an ad for some townhomes today...starting at $385K.

When we move we will probably rent for a year, maybe two but we want to get into a house.

Holy crud, where do you live??

You can get 2 acres, inground pool, new construction two story home.. for that here. I have a pretty new mortgage that I pay now, and I get a lot more sq.ft. than that for the price I paid.

The same applies here. I live in an apartment, but my friend who lives within sight distance of my apartment, his house cost around $830K and they dont have two acres. They have a tiny inground pool, 3 story house(counting basement) I don't know the square footage of his house though but his house is pretty big.

Housing here in Indiana is very expensive.

Houses around 800-1mil. here are normally "Estates" not really a single-family home. I thought Indiana housing would be cheap. I think I did OK building my home.. and I imagine if moved to Indiana with my home.. That house you described would be 200k... More than 4x... $4,980,000 for mine.. which can't be right?? haha

I'm in the Bronx, NY. This apartment in Manhattan would be probably $3K or more; it's pretty big at 670 sf.

What I described is what you would see in most of the urban areas of Indiana. You probably wont necessarily run into home prices like that in rural parts of Indiana.

some yes but when you venture out towards the edges of the city and the suburbs the prices of housing goes way up. The average price for a new home in my town is around I $240K?

While the average price for an existing home is around $175K.

Downtown Indianapolis I think their price of housing is proposterous.


Also different realitors show different houses so just because one shows affordable housing doesnt mean that all housing is affordable.



How is housing prices down in Louisiana?

How are you guys tonight?
