Ha. $89k for a house in LA? That's laughable. $89k for a down-payment is more reasonable.
$89k for a down? Not sure what frum neighborhood in LA you live in! These days that wouldn't cut it even in the Valley

It is the Median (ie middle-point) priced house. Not Average priced.
Right, I know, hence I changed my verbiage in a subsequent post.
Obviously does not reflect Hancock Park. Median home price includes 30th and Hoover.

I read a lot of the pages of this thread and I see there is a Dallas section in the Wiki. Can someone who lives in Houston write something up please. Considering of possibly moving there.

You probably need to factor in that housing is more expensive in the frum areas. But quite interesting
Definitely. Baltimore is 52k... If you go to Freddie Gray land,  that will you 5 houses. In my area,  that's a fifth of a house

Elaborate? Ok. Houston is great. The property values are awesome. Jobs. Good economy. It's just really, really, really humid and hot.

look at the shuls and schools first. There is a wide range of styles, and they are far apart (in geographical distance).

As far as I've heard, the only true lubab school is LEC. I have an interview for a job located in NMB. But I dont feel the need to live in NMB if other communities are nicer/better quality of life.
