What is it with our seniors getting jacked at Kroger's?

Not long ago there was a story about an 80-something lady getting beat and robbed at the Georgesville Rd. Kroger.

Georgesville. That should tell you it all... on the surface, area doesn't look bad. But go down Hall Road or further down Georgesville towards Broad, see what kind of neighborhood frequents the place.

Ever been to the Walmart up that way? Scary.

The former (still empty?) Meijer was just as bad 20 years ago.
My first wife and I moved out here 21 years ago on two weeks notice for my job. We had never been here before and had to choose an apartment based on what we could research over the phone and in a library from 800 miles away. Our first year was spent at Shannon Way. I nearly shit when we pulled in, but it was never dangerous or threatening back then, it was even safe to go to the movies next door at Westland. We honored our year's lease and got the hell out, rented in Dublin for another year, then bought a house in Hilliard.

Actually 8 or so years ago I went to that Wal Mart when it first opened and around the same time I had been to that Kroger. Can't say it left much of an impression either way, except that it wasn't worth fighting the crowd to save a buck.

I think that Miejer is still empty. I haven't been down Georgesville in a couple of months. It's rare that I head out that way--usually when I go up to Auto Mall to get the car in to the dealership.

I first got into Columbus about 5 years ago, got tired of commuting between Dayton and here. I was working for myself then, had two contracts in town that were eating all of my time--at the Dispatch and up at ODOT. All I did was drive, work, sleep. So I had little time to research where to live, but was shocked at the roach hotels up along Hall Road. Lots of Somalis there. That area is just getting worse by the day. I don't think the casino will help much. Westland Mall scares the sheet out of me.

Luckily my sister found this place, on the edge of Hilliard. Only problem was I had to wait a couple months to get in. My problem is I work long hours quite a bit and travel a bit. So I really don't mind not having the upkeep associated with a house at this point.

Were I single, I wouldn't own in this economy, either. The mortgage payment would be better off invested in the market while renting at half that rate since the housing crash. But at the turn of the century, it was a heady thing seeing home values going up 10-15% a year. I look at my sister and her husband in Las Vegas...bought at $200k 15 years ago, market took it to $700k five years later, now worth $175k in constant dollars. Nice house. Kids grown. They're still there.

My sister's in the same situation. Second marriage, and they bought a newer place in Carmel Valley right after they got married in 99. House was appraised at $750K back then--a much smaller house than what I owned in Beavercreek, paid for $112K in 1990 and sold for about $150K in 2003. Had over an acre, wooded lot, 3000+ sq ft, 4 bed, 3 bath. Sister's place 2 bed, 1-1/2 bath, adobe, not insulated, on maybe 1/4 acre. House is now worth about $600K. I honestly do not know how anyone affords living out there. My sister? A nurse. Her husband? Runs a Porsche shop and runs motor-crosses. Salaries have to be inflated out there. I just go to visit and chill out. Beautiful country, though, close to Big Sur.

Basically, that's my approach right now. For better or worse, I'm not motivated. All my extra cash is getting shoved into my 401K or into an investment fund. Meh. My family is long-lived, I'm in no real hurry. If I do move west though, it would likely be Cali or Vegas. So maybe investing my cash is the best deal LOL. It's expensive out there.

Salaries are indeed inflated. As you know, I grew up in a Dublin-esque suburb of Boston. My folks bought the house I grew up in for $23k in 1967. Dad died in 1982 just as I started my sophomore year in college. House was paid off by insurance. 1991: I was married, so was one of my sisters, the other was "doing her thing." Mom sold the homestead for $700k.
At last sale, in 2002, it went for $1.25 million. In Dublin, Ohio it would have sold for maybe $360k. The point is, regional markets for property, wages and taxes are apples and oranges. Everything is relative.

Owning in this economy isn't necessarily bad, it's the OWING that sucks.

Get more people to step up like this in every aspect of life, and we can reduce government to a minor annoyance.

At least I'm not upside down. God willing, should the status quo prevail, I'll be paid off in eight-nine years.
I'm not optimistic and I'm thinking more about gunports than mortgage burnings lately.

It was through sheer luck and I mean that, that I'm in as good shape as I am. Not that I knew it but through circumstances I sold at the right time, rented for a few years and got a great deal on the home I now own (well, it's about 90% paid off) Value-wise I don't know what the current value is but I have no intention of selling. My kids will have to deal with that.
