I get it. That's one reason I've stayed away from real estate outside of REITs. Affordable markets have less NIMBYism, meaning rents wont increase, and pricey markets are the opposite.

Yeah they didn't vet this one or represent their followers' interests. Bigger question is why does their audience need credit card debt consolidation advice. Seems odd.

3M a buy now?
