what's cool are modern houses. Always used in ads to make products look cool, always used in film to make characters look cool. But in real life society does not want you to have that cool house, they are afraid of your cool, and they try to punish you for aspiring to that cool house with everything in their power - inflated prices, low appraisels, negative real estate agents. But its to no avail, because they can't take the shine off the modern house and they know it.
