    4,233 Sq Ft; 5 bedrooms; 4 baths for under 200 grand!?

    In Manhattan, you can get a kitchen cupboard for that kind of money.

    Maybe it's like the free drinks in the casinos. They know you're going to spend all your money on hoes and gambling anyway.

    This WOULD be a fantastic opportunity for someone who wants to harnass the desert sun for power and experiment with terraforming it. If such a person had the cash on hand. But only capitalists have it, and they don't think in terms of physical reality.

    Awesome! The several thousand mile commute is holding me back a bit, though.

    I'm sure there's some piece of glacier you could buy for an equivalent price up there in Finland.

    The land value up north is pretty low. Unfortunately I'm in the far south.

    I'm a few hours drive from there. That's as close as I dare to get.

    Expensive. Might be better to commute from Richmond or Oakland.

    I just returned from Vegas awhile back. Housing is cheap alright. I'm not sure the 112 degree summers are for everyone though. Bring your own job too, not many of those in Vegas.
