Do NYC middle class residents get upset when they see videos like this --->


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nh2CTHk1CJI

Just curious, because the home in the above video is absolutely gorgeous. It's located a few miles outside of Austin, TX. With the added upgrades, it's around ~$460K.

$460K won't even buy a decent size 1-bedroom condo in a nice area of NYC.

No, because these other places don't have what New York does

And Austin isn't even cheap for US standards.

So, how come they never show any footage of what's around the house or the neighborhood? Are you planning to stay in all the time?

A lot of people love Texas. But it doesn't have anything NYC-esque if that's what you crave

A youtube beauty blogger; "I'm a beauty and lifestyle vlogger who's a single mom to a toddler. "

I wonder how that daddy is...

I couldn't even get past the first 3 minutes of the video. As soon as she mentioned shes going to put shelves to hold her wigs in that first bedroom room I just stopped watching...…….

Besides this is Texas, Ive been in texas for a few months and it was the most isolated feeling I ever had. Ive done Houston and Auston and if you are a NYC resident that have a lifestyle of getting food at any hour of the night Texas is more like get it before 7pm or starve till 10am.

Texas doesn’t appeal to me, but I absolutely cannot wait until I can realistically move to West Virginia or Maine.

I always thought you would be someone who would like Texas.

I went to Austin, Texas in 2016 and loved it, but I'm not a fan of the weather. I went in November and it was still 80 degrees there, and they have a lot of bugs. Plenty of gun ranges though.

It’s the weather for me too, and I’m an athiest.

Although I’m sure I could coast under the radar just fine, the areas in Texas that would appeal to me are certainly more outwardly religious than the cities.
