telophase: (Near - dork)
I occasionally watch HGTV's My House is Worth What?, which, for those of you who haven't seen it, is a show where the host and a local real estate agent go through someone's house and appraise it, then at the end of the segment they compare it to the price the homeowner paid and how much they've put into it and tell them how much the house has appreciated (or not!) over the years.

What they don't do, however, is account for inflation. So some of their most amazing-sounding appreciations are worth nowhere near that much.* cut for neepery )
