Well someone has to own the houses up there?
A lot to build on in Atlanta was 500k.
Starter homes here where 200k+.
The Average home price in the early 2000 was at least 400k.
The desirable areas will take a Million to get into.
I do not live with my parents?
Heck I pay over a 1200.00 a month just for my Kids school.
