Here’s a gorgeous huge detached 7 bedroom, 4 bathroom house for sale in Chicago, about 10 minutes to downtown.
Here’s a detached 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom house in Toronto for sale, about 10 minutes to downtown.
So what’s up with these houses? Well, the house in Toronto is $698,000.00 and the house in Chicago is $249,00.00.
Why is the house in Chicago so cheap? Because it’s in the bad area of Chicago, where there’s crime, gangs, drugs, and all that fun stuff.
Why is this house in Toronto so expensive? Because it’s sandwiched right in between Regent Park and Moss Park, the just as bad area of Toronto.
So when people tell you that you’re just complaining about real estate prices in Toronto because you’re being too picky and only choosing “affluent” or “good areas” of the city to live in… you should direct them to this post. #TheresNowhereLeft
