I'm Darrell over at SSP. I put a lot of time into this thread over at SSP earlier today and don't appreciate you highjacking it sd_urban as I was going to post it here. The least you could have done is put your own spin on it while giving me credit. No, instead, you just copied and pasted it word for word. Disgraceful!

^^My bad. I saw the same article online, but saw that your summarized version was better. Didn't mean to offend you. Please note that I didn't copy your EXACT post.

If you'd like, I'll delete this thread.

After reviewing, you did not copy my exact post, but you didn't add anything of your own to it. You only deleted items which would have answered Hybrid One's question. Thank you for responding to me. I do appreciate that.

Where's Charlotte, North Carolina? I know the median price for a home their cannot be below 82k. I'd be shocked to find it wasn't over 145k.

Twelve MSAs over 500,000 were not included and no explanation was given. Perhaps this is due to latest data not available.

Those MSAs over 500,000 not included (listed in order of population size) are:

San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA

Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC

Fresno, CA

Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA

Bakersfield, CA

Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, NY

McAllen-Edinburgh-Pharr, TX

Stockton, CA

Scranton-Wilkes Barre, PA

Lakeland-Winter Haven, FL

Harrisburg-Carlisle, PA

Augusta, GA

Darrell, I don't see how you could possibly take credit for something you directly copied off of cnn.com. Do you think they would have the same complaint against you that you are making here?

Well I'm glad to see that some of the south's largest metro's Atlanta, Dallas and Houston remain affordable. All three of these cities are major employment centers and it's good to see that not only can the executives live in these metros but so can the workers. Jacksonville, Nashville, Memphis and Birmingham also are major employment centers in the south and they too remain affordable. Perhaps this is why so many corporations find southern locals so appealing.

I wish they could have given an explaination as to why they left off some cities (MSA).

There is even a more interesting CNNMoney article from August 23rd regarding which metro areas are over/undervalued.

http://money.cnn.com/2005/08/18/real_estat...ousing_markets/

And they did include Charlotte at 2% undervalued (nice :) ). GR is a not bad at +13%, but not nearly as bad as many of the California markets :blink:

Sorry if this was covered on an earlier thread. I may have missed it.

The big difference is that I listed my source, CNN, with a link. I also took the time to root out the metro division duplicates and figured out which MSAs were not included. I then extracted only those MSAs over 500,000 as below that there would have been many more than 12 MSAs not included.

I wouldn't call that directly copying from CNN.

Most information such is this has a source and those who post it have to get it from somewhere.

Wow! I live in San Diego and I can tell that San Diego is completely out of control. Everybody keep on saying that the price bubble is going to explode soon but I don't see when and how. It is absolutely crazy to compare the difference between San Diego and Chicago, for example.

I love San Diego, the weather is great, the city is awesome, you are close to the ocean and close to the mountains, there are several great urban neighborhoods and the general vibe of the city is excellent. But... come on! Chicago is my favorite city in the U.S., is a world-class city, with lots of thriving and booming new urban areas, lots of culture and things to do, ethnic diversity and lots of great midwesterners (the nicest people in the U.S. by far). I know that the weather is awful during the winter, but... I think in a couple of years I will move to Chicago, So Cal is out of control!

According to the Tuscaloosa Chamber of Commerce web site, the average selling price of a home in April 2005 was $155,713. This from a city of just over 80,000 in 2004 (100K+ with Tuscaloosa/Northport combined) and 164,000 in the county itself.

Compared to stats from other cities throughout AL, Tuscaloosa's median home price is higher than three of the four larger cities within the state... 5% higher than Huntsville, 16% higher than Montgomery, and 25% higher than Mobile. Only Birmingham, whose population well exceeds Tuscaloosa, has a higher median home price of 13% greater.

Why? Many in the area point to the massive growth rate as a result of Mercedes opening its plant here several years ago while other think the realtors, themselves, are to blame. Whatever the reason, real estate prices have skyrocketed within the past decade and certainly the realtors have seen their share of the profit.

I noticed lots of realtors now can afford to drive BMWs. No wonder my local BWM dealer doubled the size of their lot. Take into account they make a minimum of 3% off every deal that's not bad at all.

There was some questions early on what exactly Charlotte's situation is, well here is an answer.

http://www.realestatejournal.com/columnist...ivingthere.html

The median home price was $169,400 in the first quarter of 2005 while the average home price was $213,488.

According to that CNN chart, the South looks like it is by far the least expensive area to live in the United States home wise (besides Florida of course).
