Ugh. Why can't they get out of the boroughs already? Maybe even. I don't know. New Hampshire? Texas? Oklahoma? Are there only Property Virgins in Toronto or New York state?
. My problem is that NY doesn't represent all urban areas. Far from it. Buying a home in, say, Phoenix or Dallas or any number of other large cities is very different.
With Sandra, they did several episodes in Texas. The most notable featured a loopy red haired lady who bought a rent to own crapshack. There was another where the couple was looking for a home in the DFW area sort of near DFW airport, and two of the houses they looked at were close to 70 miles apart, but they didn't mention that on the show.
I actually think this difference in density that drives people to not concerned at all about neighborhoods is the major difference between searching for real estate in the north east vs the south/west, with the major cities in CA being the only exception. For example, I'm not sure there are too many people who say "I want to live in New York", and then actually choose a house in Danbury CT, but that's not at all uncommon in DFW.
I believe they also featured Austin and San Antonio, but can't remember enough details to where it might have been one of the PV clones.
