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

Me? A social worker? Afford real estate in my city of Los Angeles?

title or description

For real though, I'm forever mad that California has a massive affordable housing problem and the real estate lobbying forces refuse to let the state do anything to fucking fix it.
But Cali just made a huge change to zoning laws?
To allow for multiple dwellings on a lot zoned for a single family home but how long do you think that takes to put into action and like, actually help people?
🙌 social workers❤️
I would love to afford to buy and then rent and live off passive income like a disgusting rich asshole but alas unless I marry rich it ain't happening
There was a bit during quarantine when Lily James was posting pictures and videos in her London house and it was so cute and homey. There was even a little back garden. It made me fantasize about being rich there someday.

Adele’s Los Angeles house must be obscene if she can’t afford the same thing in London. I’m in the greater LA area and I can’t even afford a tear down. The only people I know who have been able to buy homes are couples in super high income careers. I’m getting sick of it tbh, it’s so depressing to get older and realize my financial situation is pretty much never drastically changing 😭
Well the "same thing" probably doesn't even exist in London? How many sprawling estates are there outside of the royal palaces and crap?
It's London house prices that are obscene. Not that LA ones aren't, but London is a place where you can buy a small one bed flat for half a mil (not the big city bachelor pad that may only be one bedroom but is bigger than some people's houses, a small flat). You have to go quite a way out before any sense, affordability or decent outdoor space comes back into play
lol no, even renting is insane in my country when you compare it to our minimum wage.
congrats to Adele for making me dislike her more and more every time a post about her comes up I guess
she can't afford to live like she does in LA in London. That doesn't mean she's poor.
Y’all are so weird. Yes her house is expensive, but she clearly means that a house the size of hers in London would cost way more there than it does in LA.

Reading comprehension is rock bottom on this site jfc.
I think people are perfectly aware of what she meant.

That doesn't change that she should shut up.
If you read some of the other comments in this post, people clearly weren’t.

I don’t see why she should shut up.

no reading comprehension and zero understanding of the situation in the uk at all. it's been a problem for awhile and on top of that, idt anyone's taking into consideration she probably needs to account for other needs like security.

I will take any excuse to make fun of celebrities
I feel like the people who complain aren't even British and have no idea of the housing situation in London/the UK.

Unless the person's already a fave, they're going to be interpreted through the least generous lens.
I luckily bought 3 bed/2 bath townhouse for really cheap in 2016. Rent for a similar place in my area is about 1800 now & the average yearly salary on my area is like 40-50k
went to look at the article and full quote,

"And the kind of house I have in LA I could never afford in London. Ever,” Adele said.

The claim was met with slight disbelief from British Vogue writer Giles Hattersley, who questioned the validity of the statement, to which Adele responded: “No, I looked at houses. It’s like hundreds of millions of pounds. I don’t have that much money at all. I’d throw up.”

I know nothing about London real estate
London real estate is nuts.
it's bonkers.
its expensive but shes reaching
its not all hundreds of millions of pounds
go to sothesby which is rich people real estate
and you can get huge mansions and states for shockingly less than hundres of millions of pounds. which she has btw
I own a house in rural ms
rollin in the deep (south)
This comment is underappreciated.

I bought land in NOLA, by suing my slumlord and forcing a buyout.

but I can't afford a house for it lol.
get land, bb
probably too expensive to insure in NOLA? idk that's my guess. i'd be too scared to live there tbh.
my house is slowly sliding down this hill we're on, pretty sure
but it's real slow, so I figure it's fine until we're sent to whatever place they hide poor senile people, which might be at the bottom of said hill
She also said she was unemployed during the pandemic LMFAO. SHEESH.
Ok Camille Grammer (who couldnt imagine fitting a family of 3 in a 3 bdr 2500 sq ft condo)/Erika Jayne! So poor! How do people live in anything so small that is 10,000-17000 sq ft? I'd feel claustrophobic.
I know people keep screaming that the only way to get more affordable housing is to build more dense housing, but as someone who has lived in a tiny condo for years, all I want is a small house and yard.
Cities should have more dense housing, but I wish there were more affordable single-family homes for working-class families.
I wish public transport (in the US at least) extended further out into the suburbs so people could have the SFH with the yard and still be able to access the city (where most jobs are) easily and have best of both worlds.

My hometown is technically a suburb of Seattle but if you wanted to use public transport to get there it’d take 2 hours to get to downtown. Then another 1-2 hours to get anywhere to the further reaches of the city limits. Just not reasonable long term (and I should know, I commuted that way to work for 6 months before moving closer).
Suburb is why we have problems with lack of houses, we need more houses and SFH can be built but what we don't need is huge ass yards (*unless you live in rural areas). We also need to change zoning laws so we can have better public transportation and a grocery store a walk away and not 10 miles down the road.

I read and learn a lot about the missing middle housing and it pisses me off how suburbs destroyed that lol

I'm in the process of moving right now because of this. I don't need a huge amount of space more than I already have, but over the pandemic it's been so bad for my mental health not having a bit of outdoor space of my own and having to work out of my relaxation space. I can work from home but I just need it to be in a dedicated room I can shut the door on and feel like I've switched off.
I can't even afford Columbus, Ohio.
I really just want a small house to myself, but idk if it will ever happen unless I move back to the south. Then there's my aunt on the other hand who is buying her third house to rent out....
I really wish there were limits on people buying single family homes they're not living in themselves. It's ruining tons of people's chances to get a starter home.
