800k? Ugh ... I hate my life
That's not that bad, really, once you consider the location, lot size, and everything else associated with it. Honestly, after living out in the 'burbs for five years and dealing with the daily assreaming of traffic I'll gladly pay extra not to have to deal with that crap again. Besides, it's not like the $800K is your first place, unless you inherit an azzload of money or magically come across $160K you're not financing that with an FHA (3.5% down) loan.
