i bet it's cause half of r/NYC ended up moving here after rent increases pushed them out.

Well yeah they saw that homes here were affordable in 2020 and were like "cant let that continue"

My new neighbor just paid 690k for a house that was valued at under 400k 2 years ago. I honestly don’t know why people are buying in this market

Considering 99% of people living in Jersey were at some point NY residents, I find this comment comical. Reminds me of that Spiderman meme where he's pointing at himself.

That’s a made up statistic if I ever saw one

I'm offended and appalled that you would attack my made up statistic

Yea that makes sense. I have no idea why anyone would want to live in north jersey if they’re not transplants from NYC or work in NYC

Not to mention the overall quality of almost everything in this state

The rats here are weaker though. Pitiful, even.

Where is r/newjersey going after they price us out.

Charleston, SC is the southern equivalent of Portlandia.

I’ve been to SC a couple times. One time while getting an Uber, the driver was talking to us about politics and history and then all of a sudden he said “….your president” and we were like what is he talking about lmao. Then it clicked that he was saying Lincoln was our president and not his. That was a trip. Also I couldn’t believe they have the confederate flag on their license plates. I legit thought it was a joke plate or something but nope, it’s official. Also a shit ton of churches literally every mile

Honestly, this sounds like a skit that could be on the show. Charlestonia. 😆

I know someone who moved to NC after catching covid on vacation there. Good riddance.

Every other thread is "Hey I'm moving to NJ, where should I live?!?!?!"

Wish they would move back, traffic is too much for these roads

This comment reminds me of that one Taylor Swift song I keep hearing all over social media.
