Turn it off…

By | January 15, 2010

So I’m watching House Hunters and they’re in Chicago looking at condos.

Right now the perky couple is looking at a place with exposed brick, hardwood floors and high-end appliances. Not to mention the stunning bathrooms and huge walk in closet.

The place is 1300 square feet and is listed at $250,000.

Insane. Just insane.

You can get 430 square feet in my condo for about $250,000. Very young people in skinny jeans live in those units.

I’m not sure where I am going with this. I realize Toronto is an expensive city and we don’t have to live downtown. No one twisted our arms.

People do live — happily they claim — in Whitby and Vaughn.

Maybe I should just stop watching this godforsaken show. Or else move to Oshawa and shut the hell up.

    Just think of it as investing on margin. PS: you misspelled Vaughan. It’s not like Vince.

    We did the walk of shame back to the burbs. It was the realization that someone would pay us half a million for a piece of crap, uninsulated, 92-year-old semi-detached and leave us with almost nearly mortgage-free in a two-year-old, insulated, energy-efficient house where homeless people don’t panhandle from door-to-door and then take a crap on your front porch when you decline (can’t prove it but don’t believe it was coincidental, either).

    Sometimes I think the same thing about moving to the ‘burbs. Almost mortgage-free is music to my ears.
