In Palo Alto, as in many other affluent yet zoning-constrained enclaves around the Bay Area, homeowners are going underground. Architects and contractors report that the once-lowly basement has become the hottest area in home design, resulting in a flotilla of square-footage-concealing iceberg houses.

“Add living space to home investment”

So many words my head hurts. #1 sign someone is bullshitting you.

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.
