Got the key for our new house today. Man...it took two years of looking and saving and cleaning up my credit to get this place. It's kinda small but at least it ours. Buying property in Seattle is rough. The prices just keep going up, it's because we have a real dot.com economy around here. Alot of new money, that drives real estate up and up. Houses that would sell in other areas for $120,000 go for close to $300,000 here in Seattle. It's getting outa control.
