Comedian Daniel Tosh of Comedy Central's YouTube curation show Tosh.0 offered a little #realestateperspective today on Twitter (see above). At the risk of being humorless, we have to point out that 1) Compton is not exactly the treacherous AK and crack hotbed of the NWA album--crime is down and the city's working its way back to middle-class enclave status; and 2) A house in Compton is in the middle of Los Angeles. A house in Kansas is in Kansas. With that out of the way, let's take a look at just what he's talking about. The least expensive Compton houses on the MLS today are actually only $70,000--bargain, Kansans!
