Homewords: Humor from Dave Barry

Study the listings carefully and make a note of any houses that look right for you, so your broker can confirm that they were all sold just that morning. This is actually good, because it will help to get you into the proper highly desperate frame of mind where you will do almost anything to get a house, including paying large sums of money you really don’t have to people you really don’t know for reasons you really aren’t sure of. Which is the essence of real estate.

— Dave Barry from “Homes and Other Black Holes”

Obtaining real estate was once a more casual affair. After the collapse of the Roman empire, Germanic tribes swept into Britain and claimed it as theirs. In the Bill Bryson book At Home, archaeologist Brian Ayers is quoted, saying, “It didn’t…involve a lot of slaughter or bloodshed. Probably one day you would just look out in your field and see there were twenty people camped there, and gradually it would dawn on you that they weren’t about to go away, that they were taking your land from you.”
