It seems Kansas' own Harper County is on the internets today, going from CNN Money to Yahoo! News:
In Kansas boomtown, trailers renting for $2,000 a month
From the article:
"In the oil boomtowns of southern Kansas, enterprising residents are turning into real estate moguls, renting out everything from double-wide trailers to rooms in an old bank for as much as $2,000 a month.
Workers flocking to the area seeking high-paying jobs in nearby oil fields and windfarms have created a housing shortage in these small farming towns, causing the rents to skyrocket."
What's especially interesting to me about the video clip, above, is that they do point out some positive but also some negative aspects of the boom.
Anyway, if you're needing work, maybe you know now where to point the car, eh?
Have a great weekend, y'all.
