What's really funny is that as a white person they rip up the check so it never affects your balance when you do pay rent. Paying for things is for minorities.

cloud_van_dame: Serious question:

Wife and I just moved to LA a few weeks ago. We're staying with a friend near where I work until we can find a permanent place. And negotiating neighborhoods and rents is like Chinese algebra (in some cases LITERALLY, since some real estate listings are actually written in Chinese).

Can a native-type person let me know where I should be looking to live?

Difficulty:

1) Job is in City of Industry. Wife's job is in Redondo/Hermosa. Yeah, I know.
2) Need a single-family house with fenced yard, as we have a rescue Greyhound.
3) I can't live where there are bars on the windows. I want my parents to come visit.
4) $2,000-$2,200 would be a good rent window.
5) At least 2 bedrooms.


Culver City, El Segundo?


if you see my wallet, lemme know?

I don't see what the problem is. I know this woman who moved to L.A. from Nebraska to become an actress. She got a job as a waitress at the cheesecake factory until she makes it big. Her place in Pasadena is really nice. Last I heard she was dating some nerd in her apartment building...

//and Minnesotan winters


So. Very. Much. This.

I lived in or near Milwaukee for most of my life. Did the last six years in Minneapolis.

I never chose to live someplace where it's colder than Santa's nutsack...That's just where I was. I'd hated the weather with every single ounce of my soul since I was a kid, but I just always figured that a warmer climate was out of the question financially.

It wasn't until the winter of '10, (when it was -20° for about 6 weeks, and we got 20 feet of overall snowfall) that I finally got fed up, and said "enough." Luckily, I was at a point in my career where the affordability of coastal living had started to look pretty feasible. And that was BEFORE I got a $16K raise when I jumped gigs.

So...Here we are. And it's BEAUTIFUL. And yeah, it's more expensive. I about shiat the first time I gassed up my Jeep. But frankly, I can't see ever going back to shoveling. Not for anything.

MaliFinn: Dingleberry Dickwad: que.guero: Ok, so here's what I don't get. From what I understand jobs don't really pay more in places like California, Seattle or New York, so why the fark is the cost of living so much higher, and why are houses so much more expensive? I've been told once that my simple little 2 bedroom house with a moderate sized back yard would sell for twice as much as it does around here in bumfark Wisconsin. What gives?

Because very few people dream of moving to Wisconsin...

SF/LA/NY/SEA are desirable because they are actual places -- opportunity abounds for most anyone who has the determination to make things happen.

Places like Wisconsin are where people end up, nothing personal..

Bwwahahahahahaha! You, I like you. If you want to call higher chances to get shot, mugged, ripped off, have your kids go to overcrowded schools and all the other problems you constantly hear about places like NY, LA,SF, etc opportunity, then I guess you're right. I'll grant you that in those places you don't have to deal with dipshiat backwoods bigoted rednecks as much as you would in WI, but still seems a small price to pay for lower cost of living and lack of the issues I mentioned.

NO DOUBT.  People say they want to live in California, and then they spend all their money trying to get what we have for free in small-town Wisconsin.
- I have an IT job with a good wage and full health coverage.  My commute is five minutes, with a WalMart in between.
- My kids have no problems with schools.  If I have an issue, I walk over to the Principal's house and say 'hi.'
- Our crime consists of angry neighbors fighting over fences, and drunks.  Mostly drunks.
- I don't get litterbugs or vagrants in my yard, but on rare occasions, deer.
- No 'gated neighborhoods' or 'homeowners' associations'. My neighbors are two churches, a county sheriff, and a retired doctor.  When a pet runs free in our neighborhood we recognize it and call the owner to tell them which way it ran.
- Guns aren't ...


Cool list. Do you moonlight as the person who writes the "99% of you won't share this" pics on Facebook?

Jon iz teh kewl: megarian: They should move to Detroit. Being in the USA illegally would make them better off than most of my neighbors.

And you can BUY a house for $100. "Fixer-upper" comes to mind: http://www.businessinsider.com/cheap-detroit-homes-2011-6?op=1

Yeah. No.

so for only $1500 i could buy all of them, and be the next John McCain?


Damn, for $1500 you could have bought the Silverdome.*

So yeah.

Or you could buy a block of Lansing and become a Romney.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Torrance, or San Pedro.

Although I don't know where City of Industry is.  Sounds like something east of the 405, where I dare not venture.  On a map, anything east of the 405 might as well say "Thar be dragons", except for Disneyland.

Every time I've walked out into the cold here in Columbia, MO., I've thought, "Sheesh, it'd be nice to live somewhere warm during the winter. Or all year long."

timujin: Wow, that's rough.  I have a 1050sq ft 2/1 SFH with a 1-car garage and a yard about three times the size of the house in a good neighborhood.  I pay $1400.

Moving, though, to the west side into a 1-bed with a loft, a 1-car garage and a small (15x20) yard.  It'll be $1600, but it's 4 miles from the beach and, more importantly, about 2.3 miles from my favorite bar.


Gotta love priorities.
