1998 for me, first house I bought, aged 28, still in it. Timing and luck of birth is everything. For me owning land is everything, which is which condos don’t appeal, where you own nothing but a temporary place in the sky.I own, but I'm lucky. I got in the market in 2007.
There are some pretty, historic homes in the US going for cheap. But if I’m moving to the US I rarely want to see snow again. So I’d look for that urban, brick lined main street space just below the snow line and above the desert/heatwave line - perhaps in the Virginias. I don’t care if it’s a red or blue state, I may be a frequent NDP, Liberal and GPC voter, but I’m a white, middle class, straight guy, not unaccustomed to churches, who can ride a Harley, and handle a rifle thanks to 1980s Army Cadets.
Why any American lives above the snow line, idk. But you might have it here. There’s always Alaska.
The entire Rust Belt is climate change safe haven.
