Adele Claims She Can't Afford to Live in London

Poor Adele! She recently purchased three houses in Los Angeles for a total of $30 million, but London was simply too expensive for her!

According to her, “The kind of house I have in L.A. I could never afford in London. Ever.”

Her homes in L.A. total 18,000 square feet (5,486 meters) combined. She simply couldn't settle for 17,000 square feet in London!

Can you afford real estate in your city, ONTD?

Yes, I already own property you peasant
Maybe someday!
Nope, nope, nope

I've started looking at buying. I prequalified for a mortgage the other day for what seemed like a good amount of money before I actually looked at what that could buy me and lol. Ideally I'd want a very small single level house (I have bad knees) but it seems like that's probably a pipe dream for my budget. I'll have to go with a condo or something.
good luck!
She should get a roommate.
Less beans on toast.
I have no interest in homeownership tbh. A house to rent for airbnbs would be okay, but that slips into landlord territory.
airbnb are worse than being a landlord lmao
slips into landlord territory? airbnb shits all over landlord territory lol. soooo much more damaging
I mean to be fair I think she’s saying she can’t get a similar range or size of house in London, which is prob true.

Like what I pay for rent where I am, I can probs get twice the quality of apartment back home. She could be less tone deaf but I am assuming she’s just comparing real estate markets
Yeah, that's how it came off to me, too.

No one actually cares because the rest of the world can't get either one, but she's not wrong lol.
I always try to keep things in perspective. I'm in Cleveland, which is definitely up-and-coming and getting more expensive every day, but we bought our house for like $85k five years ago. Cute house in a quiet neighborhood, 20 minutes from downtown. Now it's valued at about $160k. We're considering moving and getting something around the $200k range.

We can get a three bedroom, minimum 1.5 bathroom home with a decent yard and the space we need in a nice neighborhood for that amount here. In Austin, it would be minimum $500k, closer to a million for the nice ones. In LA? Lol. You could pay well over a million dollars to live in a rough neighborhood. And we generally only really look at houses between 1,200 and 2,000 square feet!
lol I mean she's right about her finances so whatever. I am building a new home that won't be done until next summer, and I wish I didn't have to spend the money tbh but the rent is going up here, and it is not worth it one bit.
I wanted to buy a house early last year, but decided to wait because I was too afraid with covid. My city was affordable, but now I'm getting frustrated because only shit is in my price range after all the inflation. I've decided once I hit $60k (I'm so close!!) in savings I'm going to switch gears and start paying down my student loans instead 🤷‍♀️
I was looking around then too and it's crazy how different things are now. What you can get for the same money is so much worse, which makes it hard to feel like it's worth it.
I live in an expensive pocket in LA so unless I become a millionaire then neaux lol I would love to one day though!
That’s not what she said, come on now.

She’s right that she couldn’t get the same size (and age) place in London for what she paid in LA. She couldn’t get that in NY either. Real estate prices are out of control across the board.

I wonder if Brexit will shake up the domestic real estate market in the UK.
We know what she meant. She lives in a mansion - it's the superfluous nature of the home/complaint.
op wanted to stir shit up so of course the osyed her comment out of context
And the post got over 200 comments, we need more of this!
She didn't say she couldn't afford to live in London, just that she couldn't afford a house of the same size in London as her home in LA. That sounds about right tbh. London real estate is INSANE.

Anyway, I live in LA and still live with my parents to save money. I really want to buy just a cute little townhouse here in the Valley. That's all I want! And it's like 600K. hahahahaha. But I am trying to save to one day be able to buy.
I have similar goals but alot less money than your own… did u mean the san fernando valley because there are some great ones forsure
Haha yeah I mean the San Fernando Valley. The only Valley I recognize! 818 >>>>

she's wrong for this but she's right that in england and london specifically there are like no gardens and there's no fresh air lol. like this is a really small country so i kind of get what she's saying tbh. that said, tiny violin time
I earn like $350 a month so no.
Fuck my BA and the fact I studied the thing I wanted to instead of thinking about what would make my life better.
I'd rather live in a ~modest~ multi-million dollar London apartment than a 30 million dollar home in Los Angeles tbh.
well i dont know about you guys but when i got famous i really really needed 18 bedrooms
I hate being poor almost as much as I hate rich people
I mean, they're probably related. Rich people more often than not (always?) are the reason people are poor.
Hey Adele, I live in a 450 sqft studio and will likely never be able to afford anything bigger. Shut the fuck up and go get more fillers.
