Surreal Estate

What do I know about real estate? As a college student all I know is that ten people are supposed to live in a two bedroom house. Is that what real Estate is? I hope not. When are people my age supposed learn the ins and outs of buying a house, or how property ownership really works? Today? Is it today?

The other day I was looking through the magazine Dwell and, more important than the showcase of crazy modern houses, was the location of all the houses. They were all out in the middle of nature--not neighborhoods. Why isn't the world like that? One of the houses was built on a dock half over the water. Uhh, let's do that. Are these people just buying real estate and then building whatever they want on it? That is such an obviously a good idea that I can't stand it.

Not to mention all of these houses were small; they were just big enough to fit the owners and their necessities. So if you live in a college town like Glendale Az, start looking into real estate and a better life. None of us need mansions, but we also don't need to be crammed into a house like stuffing into a teddy bear--unless that teddy bear is actually the shape of your ultra-modern home. That one is mine, please don't take it.
