Where we poach from our readers and their comments to show all you folks that don’t follow or contribute to the comments what you’re missing (and hopefully shame you into getting your ass over their and chiming in). Today, we steal from “anon” (wish you gave us a name) on “Verbatim: Why is Housing in some Cities Still Booming?“:
The words deal and San Francisco don’t jive together. You either get one or the other!
Au contraire…deals are all relative. To a five year old, getting a deal is trading 4 marbles instead of 8 for a piece of gum. To Paris Hilton a deal is getting out of jail early for committing to save alcoholic elephants. To Donald Trump a deal is trading a skyscraper for a golf course. To a San Francisco home buyer a deal might be $995,000 instead of $997,000 for that fixer on the corner. You see?
…and thanks so much for commenting. We really appreciate it.
