Nit to quibble, but I don't think those toilets need a tank. So tank not sold separately ;)

You have a suspiciously comprehensive knowledge base on this somewhat specialized subject. Can you give us your pruno recipe too please?
I could, but I'd have to shank ya

My observations on the Houston real estate market:

1) People only put their homes up for sale when every major system, heating, air, water heater and roof are all end of life

2) Most of the in-town neighborhoods are almost indistinguishable in feel from the suburbs like The Woodlands, Kingwood, or Katy, but for commute and slightly fewer Hooters per square mile

3) People really like white walls and vaguely historic looking geographical wall art prints

4) If you don't have a massive outdoor grill, you ain't shit

I used to live in an older neighborhood made up of mostly late 40s/early 50s starter homes, typically with big, mature trees. When we moved in, a lot of them were still occupied by the original owners or their kids. They steadily left and the houses were sold, torn down, and replaced by McMansions. The big trees were in the way, so they got cut down and replaced with the standard two 6' saplings in the front. By the time we moved out, our street looked like a pretty standard suburb and the average price for a house had gone from approximately 90-100k to 400k for a teardown to 1 million for new construction.

So yeah, I guess my point here is that people love suburban houses, just not suburban commutes.

Also the ones that are distinguishable from the suburbs are all the same of 3 or 4 story townhomes with a leaky rooftop deck.

Leaky rooftop deck and neighboring the place with the "Geaux Tigers" banners hanging from their balconies..
