“Home.. is where I want to be. But I guess I’m already there”

“I just woke from a nightmare. In it, I had a speckerfriend (a real person), come over yelling at me if I want to help make 12 million bucks. I said how? He replied building a mansion in Whistler. I face palmed and said haven’t you seen vancouverpricedrop? He’d never heard of it, I told him he would be lucky to get 8 mill in this market. A desperate look came over him, I asked how much to break even? He said 3 million, I told him I would think about it …and then I woke up !”

“We’re staying in Vancouver because we’ve got 3 sets of grandparents for the kids nearby, and neither my husband or I has much interest in BC outside of Vancouver proper. But my subconscious has something else to say: twice this past week, I’ve dreamed of the relief of packing up and moving to Toronto or Montreal.”

Misallocation of resources.
We’d be better off dreaming about flying and exploring jungles and sex and surfing and traveling and all sorts of other stuff.
As we all already know, RE has invaded our collective psyche.
It’s part of living through a massive spec mania in housing.
Any other home/RE dream*/nightmare* stories out there?
(*The kind that happen while you’re asleep).
