lack of warmth: Look at the recent reports, crime is rising in suburbs with big houses and dropping where the houses are small. The criminals have learned to commute.

/the less it looks like you own, the less someone will try to take it

Yeah, here in Chicagoland, all the crime is in the North Shore. Lake Forest is the new Bronx.

breadprincess: I'm a Michigander who works in real estate, and it's actually not as bad here as people think (though, granted, I work in what is easily the most affluent part of the state). The market, for the most part, has stabilized. There are some really, really nice houses on the market on the outer edges of Wayne county (e.g. Belleville), but the closer to you get to Detroit proper? You don't want to live there. A former coworker of mine had a house in Dearborn with her fiancee because it was cheap, and the whole thing ended up being gutted by looters (one of which her fiancee shot, and the police didn't give a damn). They ended up saying fark that and found more expensive but ultimately safer housing in Ann Arbor because she had a baby on the way and didn't want to deal with any nonsense.

Who says no one needs van AR-15. And pit bulls.
