    @YMO, you might have to give up the "character from a Frank Zappa song" thing first. @Deep Funk probably doesn't need anyone that keeps bags of chest hair in the kitchen cupboards.

    I'm guessing. Maybe I'm completely wrong? And you can rewrite "Let's Make The Water Turn Black" together?

    Same in many parts of the US, man. As someone who was starting over after living overseas it was depressing to being back to buying basically a starter home for almost 3x what I paid for my first starter home. Especially paying more than I paid for a big 2400sq ft/223sq m. house with a big yard full of 100 year old native trees that I lived in before going overseas. That house is now worth double what we sold for.

    Interesting anecdote... I'm in Cleveland making a movie and some guys we know from another film production are in town working on the new "Blade" Marvel movie... some of it is set in 1920s Chicago, but Chicago has been so gentrified, they've had to come to Cleveland to capture that 20's architecture that Chi-town no longer has!

    Here it is mostly just a helluva lot of people moving to the Waco area.

    I've heard from realtors that N Texas is the #1 California expatriate area in the country.

    So prices are through the roof here. I hear stories of people getting $50-100k over ask, no contingency. Sometimes waiver of inspection.
