    Basically, every area that wasn't affected by the bubble a few years ago.
    That and you can attribute the Texas and Louisiana jumps to the jump in oil prices.

    Haha Scranton, PA?
    Probably because of The Office.


    Calgary housing prices have doubled in the past 5 years and the average house costs around $450, 000.
    It blows for young people like me who want to eventually buy a house in the city they grew up in.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I've been to McAllen a few times...it's always hard to tell if I'm in the U.S.A. or Mexico.
    Since I don't speak spanish, I can't even read half the advertisements and store names.
    Hot as hell in the summer too...no thanks.

    I looked at that and said - "Right, like I want to live somewhere where the average house price is $109,000."
    That sounds like SLUM territory to me.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Texas has 4 major cities in the top 8 market and I can tell you in person that Houston has not been affected by the real estate problems at all since I am in the market to buy a new house. I saw a house that I liked and it sold in 3 days. We also saw another one that jumped up from the asking price. Basically the seller was asking $169,000 and got an offer of $173,000 since there was so much interest in the house.
