the laws of supply and demand
For the past few weeks, Joe and I have been combing the rentals on craigslist.com and realtor.com for properties to check out during our trip to Atlanta in two and a half weeks. I think that despite the fact that neither of us have actually spent any prolonged period of time there, just from looking at hundreds and hundreds of listings, we are starting to get a reasonable grasp of the housing market in Atlanta, and what the going price is for homes is based on square footage, recent renovations, location and whatnot.
And then I passed by this poster on a lamp post in our neighborhood last weekend.
Wow. The housing market in New York is...different.
