What's that got to do with anything?

Things are priced according to demand. It's a big house with period features in exemplary condition and a lot of land. Do you think it should be cheap?

What? You said it was cheap. "For what it is, it's cheap." I said that it's not cheap if you can't afford half a million dollars. "Cheap" is relative.

Of course "cheap" is relative. Anything subjective is.

And to your original point - what determines a "good wage" is entirely subjective as well. Your definition of what it might be could be piss in the wind compared to others. In London I'd say a "good wage" is minimum £100K.

OK. Fair point. I have a good wage for where I work. But a poor wage for where I live.

Well a good wage to me would be one that in a familial context meant the other person stayed at home.

You'd own your property, have a car, be able to save a bit and go on a couple of holidays a year.

To a certain extent I agree, but, of course, I could own a clapped out 2001 Ford Fiesta living in a broken down flat in Rusholme or a brand new Tesla in my 6 bedroom house in Alderley Edge.

The house is worth what someone will pay for it.

That is all.

That would be Tyler, Tx not Taylor. That airport can't be very big so doubt it has much traffic. It's probably for the wealthy commuters.

It's right near the current HQ of SST Records! You could be the next bass player, singer, and/ or drummer of the world famous punk group Black Flag!!! And you wouldn't have to sleep on the floor!

I've driven through Tyler (I actually thought about trying to find Robin Hood Brians' studio, which is still there and running) - it's nowheres near Austin, so I doubt Baron and Minnie would be interested.

As I look at those pictures the Gone With The Wind theme music is running through my head.
