    That's tough. Really tough. I don't see a path to ownership that doesn't take at least a decade. But my tips would be:

    - Embrace austerity
    - Delay having children as long as biologically possible
    - Save every penny, nickel and dime.

    Even then, to get to a $300,000+ down payment is going to take many years for this couple.

    Goran - glad to hear things went well for you. With the exception of a few times where you were trying to tweak Roberto or Iwog (a particular house in Concord surrounded on 3 sides by oil refineries and garbage dumps comes to mind), it seemed obvious to me that you were one of the normal people who came for information about the crash but would eventually buy and move on with life. For most posters you can track their first to last post and see nothing but a future life filled with sadness as they missed their chance to buy and likely would be stuck moving away or renting for decades. Its nice to see you return 4 years later with things have worked out in your favor.

    Thanks man!

    Someone from flyover country expressed their opinion that me or someone else here made a remark akin to being/feeling superior to flyover folks.

    I responded by saying Californians and Bay Areans in particular can be some of the Worlds Most Obnoxious People.

    You wrote a long post, almost an essay, on three different Obnoxious Bay Area PhenoTypes. It was hilarious, more so because rang of truth.

    There were arrogant prick types who drove expensive German Sedans; there were folks who only rode public transit and had to shop late at night cause they worked such long hrs at unsuccessful startups, and there were Whole-Foods Hipster Types whose sociology major girlfriends don't shave their pits.

    Dang, I do remember that post. It's gone? I put a lot of effort into that.
