Haha yeah it's that easy get all your stuff from a book
As you saw in the data above a 300,000 dollar home is not going to cost you 30,000 dollars a year. It would be around 6-7 thousand dollars region dependent of course, so just maybe rates are higher in Chicago. Have you lived in Chicago? How would you find out? The US is a big country and thus the Internet is useful. It shows that the US system is more progressive than the British one too, but still very expensive considering the infrastructure out there.
Do you think it is a good thing to pay so much or a bit of a rip off?
I think he was being hyperbolic. I think the houses for 8,000 dollars are probably best avoided, but there are likely nice neighborhoods with nice properties at a reasonable 200,000 or even less.
Land is readily available it's just if that's where you WANT to live and what that means for your lifestyle.

Yeah, trailer parks or 50 miles from civilization and jobs, if you want it.
Plus alpha is beanz
Try 500,000 and up[/QUOTE]
That's not how I read the quote.[/QUOTE]
That does sound even more hyperbolic. Granted I have never been to Baltimore, but houses appear to be reasonably priced. You get a house, space above below and besides and a garden. And looking at some of the inside pictures some look really nicely upgraded. One looks shabby from the outside, but has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms for less than 300,000. A small family wouldn't need the space so could easily go cheaper. Looks splendid. Maybe the area sucks, I don't know, but in terms of value seems within reason.
As long as you avoid mega cities, America seems reasonable to me. Not so bad really.
