People I know do. Well some. Some will never leave. But others who have houses they bought quite awhile ago.. So they will have a big profit when selling. Same idea as when I left. It’s just hard to get back there after you sold your property. It’s tougher for the younger people, and ones with not as good jobs. It was like that in the 80’s too actually.
I have a great job. I make 30% more did my dad did at my age (factoring inflation) and he could afford a 3bd single family home, 5 kids, and stay at home wife. I can afford to buy a butterty condo in the same city. Its changed.
I get what you’re saying. But, that’s not how it was for me & most of my friends. We had to be double income families in order to afford homes. In the 60’s and 70’s it was like that though. 80’s were tough.lots of people moved away then just like it is now. 90’s a big recession and prices dropped though but most people were still double incomes, then in 2006 out of freaking control. It will be like that as long as the demand is there. It’s all relative. I still keep coming back, it’s still nicer than where I live. Plus the California doesn’t leave you.
