The housing valuations are only just beginning to reflect their true potential!

Why does everyone hate success?

"When young, people tend to make do with less in order to 'survive' the housing crisis," Romem told SFGATE. Survival in Silicon Valley often means living with multiple roommates and making do with less space, he said.

Substandard living conditions may suffice when you're young and hungry, but then "people hit that point in life" when they want to "set roots down," Romem said.

When kids enter the mix – and bring with them the high cost of childcare and an increased need for space – people must seriously consider whether to stay in the costly Bay Area, or go. Many choose the latter, and move to other metros with ample career opportunity but lower housing costs, like Austin, Texas, Dallas or Atlanta. A recent study even found the so-called "Bay Area exodus" has led to a regional U-Haul shortage.

These cities, and others like them in the southern part of the United States, have what the Bay Area lacks: affordable housing.


This is definitely true. San Francisco is the place that people in their 20's party and date. When they hit their 30's and start having kids, they tend to leave.

Why I plan to write-in Scott Wiener’s name in the June Democratic primary. He is the only person in either party who is actually doing something to solve the CA housing crisis

gentrification emergency

SF has a housing market emergency.
Not sure SF would be better off without wealthier people moving in, with the homeless and crimes.

They don't even hide the anti-American attitude:

You may ask, “Who cares what some dad from a flyover state or some businessman from another country thinks of us?” But consider this: The tourism industry in San Francisco supports 80,000 jobs, many of them filled by the diverse, working-class people we profess to want to keep here.

How come much less affordable Atherton, Tiburon and Woodside don't have one? What's the definition of a "housing market emergency"? Is it "not everybody can afford to live there"?

Upper Michigan is nice. Just get yourself a fat Eskimo squaw as a bed warmer.

Rich enclaves are ok by me, but when, at the state level, you have millions less housing units than are required based on your population, and you are deliberately preventing building more, particularly in places where there are jobs, then yes, you have a 'housing market emergency', and you are guilty of ruining the life of millions of people.

Just imagine upper Michigan is the southern part of Canada-can you imagine living in North Canada.




The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
