Maybe this will help you make up your mind. Over the past year or two, prices have gone through the roof! The real estate prices here are just stupid-high. If you had been lucky enough to get in 3+ years ago, you'd be sitting pretty in terms of equity right now. Prices continue to rise, although it is starting to level off a bit. I don't know what kind of money you'd have to spend on housing, but it's now up there with lots of other big cities.

There was time when lots of folks from California moved here... escaping from the prices there. I think NOW, though, it's pretty comparable.

Thank you Z. That's what I guessed. Same here. Real estate has gone thru the "roof," literally. I'll have to "sweat" it out & see if the prices will drop - HA. Here's a dollar, bet it all on RED.

Well... I'll put a dollar on a number for you... Unfortunately, betting on a 'color' is only 1:1 so your payout won't be much (plus, they don't let you bet that little)... Now if you want to pick yourself a number between 1-36 (plus '0' or '00') the return might actually be worth the bet.

Hee, Hee, Z. You can tell I know nothing about gambling. I'll leave it up to you.
