Steve told me of an article in the Sunday New York Times about young home owners in the city: "Young Buyers, Prepared and Fearless." Read it before it's off the website.
It's sort of delightful to read it and think about how minuscule our investment is here in Buffalo compared to that of a 24 year old art director who "recently put down a deposit for a two-bedroom, two-bath condo at 555 West 23rd Street, priced at $1.1 million."
I think I'll print this story out and frame it. Anytime Steve and I feel nauseous about our $55k closing price--plus some money for rehab--for two houses, we can look at this "art director" and laugh and laugh and laugh.
