Here in the Ozarks, we rarely have to contend with real estate pricing being so astronomical, but I originally moved here from north of Los Angeles, so I remember well the mind-boggling price jumps that simple homes were taking in the not-too-distant past.

Enjoy the read and be thankful that your biggest concern is your neighbor leaving his garbage cans on your lawn.
