for those of you planning on living in NYC and DC, do you really think youll be able to afford a nice house?

I don't think I would ever stay in the City.  If we're talking "nice" places, NYC has the following:

Uptdown apartments run:  $4600/mo - $29,000/mo

Midtown apartments run:  $4200/mo - $28,500/mo

Downtown apartmetns run: $3900/mo - $30,000/mo


I'll keep a spot in Jersey somewhere and gladly take the 15 minute subway into manhattan everyday, thanks.

That's why a brother is leaving NYC (though I'll likely end up in DC -- little to no improvement there).

My bet is that the DC & NYC markets will slow down a lot over the next 5 years. So I'm going to rent and wait and see.

Sure the markets will slow down, as with anything of that nature, but the markets here will always be high.  You'll find me in the ATL within the next 10-15 years

Atlanta is nice, but after spending the summer in DC, I see many ways in which it is lacking.

Cultural offerings, architecture, public transportation, proximity to other major cities, general sense of being at the world's political center and the concomitant concentration of brainpower and elite/powerful organizations.
