I Love Statistics But I Hate These Numbers

On sale now! This fixer upper reduced to only $999,899!!

The median home price in my county came out today: $770,000
Homes sold for $1,000,000 or more: 21%
Homes sold for $600,000 or less: 17%
Average rental price for a 1 bedroom apt/ house: $1,100
Average rental price for a 2 bedroom apt/ house: $1,590
Number of husbands making income equal to mine I'd need to buy my own home: 3.8... or, I guess we could share a 2 bedroom house with another couple... or live in a studio forever... we'll put the bassinet on the counter between the toaster and the fridge! :D
Or if I get really lucky I could buy a red tagged "scraper" for $395,000, that is, when I have $80,000 to put down. I won't hold my breath. Tell me again why I live here?
