It is so frustrating when you save up money with plans to purchase a house and the market value on homes in your area sky rockets. Example: My Grandfather sold his house across the street from my cousins house(the one I live in) for $190k about 4 years ago and last week it just sold for $550k. So 4 years ago I would of needed almost $40k to put down on the house, now if I wanted to purchase that house I would need about $110k. Well I think it is time for me to start looking at other areas to live; everything about NJ just blows anyway. Anyone have any good suggestions on where I should move to? I am a single guy with no kids.
