I remember in early 1996 when we first moved to the Seattle area. "$750?! I’m not paying $750 a month for a two bedroom house!"
Shortly thereafter, we moved in.
And I remember when we moved to Reno in 1998. "$1,000?! I’m not paying $1,000 for a three bedroom house!"
We were in by the weekend.
Fast forward to Albuquerque in 2003… "$1200? Are you sure? I’d really rather not pay $1200 a month..”
We, of course, did.
And then rural Santa Fe in January of last year… "$1550?? Fifteen-hundred-fifty? Are you crazy??”
… and of course here we are.
Days ago, in the courtyard of a modest though terrific house near the Santa Fe plaza: "$1900? That’s not bad."
