"More busy..." Is that the same as "busier?"

Is it scarce lots or is it simply to many people? In the long run, their will be so many people "tripping" over each other. I wonder if we will end up like China or India?

There wouldn't be a shortage of lots if developers weren't trying to build single family McMansions in the city. Get with the times; build up not out with multi-family housing.

I have lived in Minneapolis for 29 years. I grew up in Uptown before out of sate Yuppies and Hipsters took over. Now I live in the suburbs on a 3 acre lot. The novelty of living in congestion, crime and high taxes gets old eventally.

This article reads like the "get in now or be locked out forever" real estate propaganda from before the bubble popped. Who are all these people spending $400K and $500K on a house? I frankly don't see the value--you're going to see huge depreciation as Boomers continue to move into their sunset years. Where are recent immigrants going to get the cash to buy half-million dollar houses?

There is a simple solution - start building on the site of the old Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant. What's a little di-ethyl silica bromide ammonium phosphate polychloride in your drinking water? Every family has a three headed baby now and then, don't be so sensitive.
