re: Only a few cities could actually accommodate Amazon's second HQ - Dan
I think Austin is out based on our lack of transit. Hiring young talent is about picking a city or location that is can help with recruiting. Young people typically want to go somewhere "cool". That will be a big part of it....

re: Missing Les - Dan
He hired many upon many OCs. they all sucked. his next one would suck. somehow even our current OC would have sucked under Les. he was too stubborn to adapt and give the team a chance to win. I'm thankful for the great seasons he brought, but I don't miss the last few years ...

re: Why are housing costs so much lower in Texas than Louisiana - Dan
The houses are cheap outside the texas metro areas if you decide to commute your life away (or you don't work near city core). If you want to have a sub 45 minute commute in the afternoon, you are paying 250/ft min for small single family home. 350/ft for new or renovated Then you pay 2.4% prop...

re: The Wild DFW Housing Market--my experience - Dan
[quote]Why would you ever offer above asking price the first 2-3 days something is on the market without knowing the other interest?[/quote] You are not placing yourself in the mindset of those in this situation. It's not like you can just say "oh, well I don't like that they aren't accepting off...

re: The Wild DFW Housing Market--my experience - Dan
[quote]All these people that say they accepted an offer in under 48 hours are idtiots[/quote] The weekend bidding frenzy is a strategy in these type of markets. When the buyer knows they don't have time to think through everything and do due diligence they are emotional and are racing to beat all...

re: Turns out BR residents are miserable - Dan
[quote]I could have said kayaking the LSU lakes if I wanted somewhere close to go. The basin is big enough to explore.[/quote] Your defense of BR is valiant I won't fault you there. The problem is your logic when speaking of quality of life. In every single one of the 200+ cities with pop over...

[quote]Friend, my point was that with a median housing cost of 880k, 1600 for rent is incredibly cheap, so much so that it doesn't really add up. [/quote] ah, I see. My bad. Yes that seems odd...

[quote]Yeah... San Jose was 3 Median house costs 880K Rent average is 1600 though That doesn't seem to make sense[/quote] Pretty self explanatory.. it overcame the low affordability score with high marks elsewhere. San Jose has pretty obvious positives along with that negative....

re: any of you hate BR? - Dan
I've lived in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and Houston. you will find that most folks who have not lived in these cities do not think very highly of them. I've always felt the need to defend these places because of the misconceptions of each place. I'm not saying this to bash BR, but I've never been ...
