I was talking with a friend about buying land near us and he was shocked by the price.
He said to me something along the lines of “you could get 10 times the land here in (his state) for that price!”
I know. There are plenty of places where land is cheap in the US. And land is expensive here. An uncleared building lot often costs more than a house and a yard in rural North Florida.
But it’s the US. The idea of moving back to the states is completely and utterly unattractive to me now that I’ve found freedom abroad.
I will pay more for land to live in a nice area here and that’s okay.
Saying “it’s cheaper in ______, USA” attracts me about as much as someone saying “but land in Haiti is cheap!” or “land in Afghanistan is a STEAL right now!”
Nope, not interested. I’ll take my sleepy tropical location outside the Empire, thank you very much, and count myself lucky I can even live here.
