    Yep, they don’t buy houses, don’t buy clothes, don’t buy books, barely buy food… so goodbye businesses… let’s clean the city of the poor and of the poor’s small businesses and cheap chain stores!
    Holy moly! (cause I’m very polite) what kind of realtor are you???? You’re so ignorant of economy that I’d never buy a house from you!
