They're rising too fast. Too many of the purchases are being made by investors, often sight-unseen. Etc...

On the other hand, some experts say it won't pop, and if it does, prices will come down gradually, not crashing like last time.


The question is which experts are right? Which do you trust?

I trust the former more than that latter. For one thing, most of the latter (those who say prices will continue to rise) are people in the real estate industry, who have a vested interest in promoting the idea that it is safe to buy overpriced houses. They profit from the sale of houses, and profit even more when the prices are higher.
The twin cities economy is very strong and always has been. It is very unlikely that there is going to be any POP in real estate prices. This is not 2008.

Clearly you are someone who craves liberal politics, diversity, and mountains. You will get a healthy dose of all three in 5 years.


I don't think you have to be a liberal to vote Biden over Trump. Just, sane.

I was a republican until Trump. The anti-gay marriage pushed me closer to Independent, and Trump sealed the deal. Never voting Republican again. I voted Biden and I'll do it again, happily. Far from a liberal.

Seems like it has been like that the last few years.

Down side we have a huge bag of candy. I put it in the freezer. :-)
This must be your first experience living in an apartment. As Slamont said previously, most apartments set up their own trick or treating arrangements. Also, your experience of Halloween in Portland Oregon is completely irrelevant to the discussion of moving from CA to MN. Honestly, the majority of your posts here in this MN sub forum about Portland are mostly irrelevant.


This thread has completely derailed from the OP’s topic…where is the mod??

I consider myself somewhere between independent and a classical liberal. I used to be more open to the republican party until 2016/2017. Covid really sank that ship, though.

Ironically it seems the GOP has become less anti-gay but more flat out insane. We have entire state senators beefing with the muppets on Sesame Street over vaccines... Yea, they're too far gone.

I likely won't vote for Biden again, though. That's a different story for a different time lol.

" Far from Liberal " not by what you have posted in the past.

Red Wing is really nice. Affordable, scenic, has a lot of healthcare jobs, close to rural living. It’d honestly check off your whole list and be more convenient than many of the other cities mentioned.

Also, it is near/right on top of the Driftless Region and Mississippi River, nice area.
