    I haven’t checked lately, but I’m pretty sure prices in my area (Washington, DC) are still hilariously beyond my reach. That’s even though I’ve got some money saved up and I’ve got a desk job that pays decently (not lavishly, but better than average for someone with only a BA).

    GOOD. I’ll be concerned when it falls below where it would have been if it had risen at the average rate.

    “Record-breaking”? It’s now record-breaking for real prices to begin showing up after it was realized that the artificially inflated ones couldn’t hold up? Say it ain’t so, Joe!
