It’s on, apparently.

As noted by mysanantonio.com, a Corpus Christi gent Tweeting as @Tre_Potts, posted two photos side-by-side, one of a $450,000 house in Jamaica, New York (in Queens) and one of a $450,000 house in Fort Worth. As you might imagine, the houses were quite different.

New York Twitter lost its $#$%& mind.

It goes on that way for some time. 

Of course, this notion does not necessarily apply to Austin, the housing market for which is a subject of constant stress, speculation and discussion.
