Housing boom

In the area where my family lives, the housing market is just going nuts. in the last 5 years home values have at least doubled. It would cost us twice as much for a house down their that compares to ours here. I'm not sure how we could ever aford a house if we ever move down there. It's not as expensive as places like New York or Arizona luxury real estate, but still a bit high. It's so crazy how fast that area is growing, someone told me it's one of the fastest growing areas in the country actually. Every time we go visit there is a new shopping center or housing development. And they are all really nice too. One thing I don't like is the housing developments are all the same basic house design with no yard. I like having a yard for the boys to play in and it's getting hard to find new houses there that have a big yard.
