Wealthy Homeowners In 'Mad Rush' To Flee San Francisco"There's a mad rush to get out of the city," said Ginger Martin, a real estate agent with Sotheby's who concentrates on high-end properties in the San Francisco Bay Area. "What I'm really doing well with right now is anything that's turnkey."The virus pandemic, economic crash, and social unrest has resulted in wealthy folks in the Bay Area ditching the city for suburbs. Bloomberg notes demand for real estate is soaring in the rural communities of the Bay Area, from Marin County to Napa wine country and south to Monterey's Carmel Valley, brokers are reporting wealthy folks are leaving the downtown area. ...It's unclear if the exodus from city life for country living is short term to escape the chaos in San Francisco, or if this trend is only in the beginning stages. Ed Glaeser, an urban economist at Harvard University, said the latest events playing out in American cities suggests "a large suburban home is going to become very attractive relative to having urban space." A combination of the virus pandemic and social unrest could "delay a recovery in the appeal of urban areas," said Deniz Kahramaner, the founder of data-focused real estate brokerage Atlasa.Not too long ago, we noted how demand for rural and suburban properties increased since the start of the pandemic.Smart money is quietly leaving big cities -- and, by the way, they're also leaving many other metro areas across the country.
Rich LibbyFucks don't want to eat where they shit? Whouda thought?
they are moving to our Great State, to change the way how we live in TX...
Texas had better start curbing this shit while it is still curb-able. It used to be kind of fun when artsy fartsy, but it has gone beyond the pale with the Blues promoting insurrection, sedition, subversion, and now, turning the cities into ruins as a means to an end.
Make a law saying you cannot vote unless you are natural born Texan
And you have to have a real set of balls.
porkchopexpress saysAnd you have to have a real set of balls.People have fake implants?
They are called neuticals - they are fake testicles given to male animals.
yes, the judge does sexually assault all male dogs
richwicks saysThey are called neuticals - they are fake testicles given to male animals.I was half kidding. I'd heard of them for dogs. If I were a dog and lost mine I'd definitely want replacements!
richwicks saysdog rescueI've been watching lots of 'hope for paws' videos out of Los Angeles. I'm pretty much addicted to seeing those poor little dogs get rescued. Another thing on my list when I can afford to buy a house to live in: rescue dog.
I thought I liked Huskies, until I had 3 of them successively. They are aloof, ALL they want to do is play. Fine dogs - for somebody else. Thought I liked Border Collies, and I do, except they are neurotically crazy smart, and they are extremely active. Fine dogs - for somebody else. I am not a good BC owner.
I'd like to remove my two balls and replace them with two big cue balls. I know my wife would love it and it would sound like a pool break when you get kicked in the balls.
Huskies and Border Collies are working dogs, you have to give them something to do or they just ain’t right in the head. Huskies are hell on wheels with snow and sleds and pulling things and running. They want to be sled dogs.
Border collies want to herd things, people, cars... sadly. That’s how mine died when I was a kid. Terrible about chasing cars.
Where they are difficult to own is to keep their coat untangled. You have to brush them out constantly. Also a perfectly white dog that looks completely clean, can be entirely filthy. I used to bathe my dogs about once ever 1 or 2 months. The water turns BLACK. They take 2 days to fully dry, one full day to comb them out. Huskies are EASY to deal with in comparison.

or I'm going to kick god's ass.How are you going to do that from Hell?
Your thread about the dogs is "Sooooo San Francisco", as the SF Hipsters say.
Because children are so icky-poo, stretch marks and interfering with the Busy Hipster Life.
First, I never wanted a dog. I wanted to do dog rescue. I had a very screwed up dog that was neglected. The neighbors of some family moved away and dumped the dog on the neighbors. He lived in the garage for about a year, until the family decided to send him into a rescue. I was the foster. He had problems, he was desperate for attention, but as I was combing out all his dead year old fur, which is painful, he leaned into me. I was ripping out dead fur, filled with fleas. I was the first person to give him attention in a year.I did Samoyed rescue, and he was a mix so nobody wanted him. I bathed him, kept him clean, trained him. He had separation anxiety meaning fear of abandonment, I could write pages on how to fix that, and it takes days where you exclusively work to fix it. I had him for 6 months until finally a family came down from San Fransisco to evaluate him. I met them at work and they walked him for an hour, but the foolish father asked me a stupid question...
*This* is why PatNet is a daily must read.
I turned out to be a great dog owner, but I would be a terrible parent.
richwicks saysI turned out to be a great dog owner, but I would be a terrible parent.It's good you know your limits. The unborn children thank you, and the rescued dogs thank you.I've done both, my own kids and rescue dogs from Muttville in SF. I like to think my now adult kids turned out OK, and my Muttville rescues had some happy and fulfilling lives in my home. SF has become a ghetto of childless Dog People like you. BTW, most dogs and kids love each other.
There's a 10 year abyss in their brain.
Well, you never save a life you just extend it.For me, having a dog, it ends in eternal regret. I made them every part of my life, but I still had to kill them when they were unable to function
