Mrs. Bee and I live in Brooklyn, and it would cost us over $1 million to buy a decent sized apartment. So we are renters for now! Maybe eventually we can buy a whole brownstone in up-and-coming neighborhood and rent out the ground floor or something. But that seems like a lot of effort when we're busy with baby and Hellobee.

How much does a starter home cost where you live? When do you think you'll buy a home? Or if you've already bought it, when did you first purchase it?
