Pay more to live in the same shithole!
Why has the cost of housing gone up so much in this city? The price of houses has doubled in the past few years but no other signs of prosperity otherwise. … no new stores, no BMWs clogging the streets, no new companies investing here. Just more expensive homes, suburban sprawl on the outskirts of the city, and more Walmarts. Not what I’d call REAL signs of wealth. People are just as poor here as ever so someone please tell me: where is the money driving up the price of real estate coming from? Are all the farmers selling their combines on Ebay and moving into town to be closer to Walmart? And better yet, why hasn’t the government done anything about rent controls? What a bloody joke! The land of socialism and they can’t even pass a tenancy act that protects people from getting evicted from $250 a month rent increases….
