Visited friend of a friend in their flat in the village / Bowery area of New York. They pay more in rent than my monthly house payment for a flat which no exaggeration could fit in my bedroom. They were so chuffed to have it they were gonna sub let rather than lose the lease!Had family in LA living on the border of redondo and hermosa beach. 2 bed house no garden and about a 15 minute walk to the beach. 5 miles inland directly east was Compton. They paid over a million dollars about 15 years ago. Fuck knows what it would cost now.
Quick look and average house price in California is $750,000. LA $800,000 and Compton $400,000
