I just want to point out that in all my time playing, more housing is available these days than at any other point except during the launch phases of new expansions in the past. In the last month, I would say I have helped 10-15 people place a house. Today, I placed a 17x18 for a friend in a PRIME location, 10 seconds from Zento. It was an house that fell without being camped. We stumbled across it today. Actually my friend did. She was so excited she is probably still shaking. My point is if you are in the market, remember that it would be a buyers market these days. A little patience and perseverance would allow you to find a larger home without having to pay an exhorbitant price for it. Don't give up hope, and don't be afraid to live in fel.
