Not that we want to be smug or anything like that, but it’s hard not to experience a bit of schadenfreude when you hear stories like the President of the SF Federal Credit Union relocating to Oregon because of housing prices. The details are HERE.
Also, recently, a Palo Alto planning commissioner announced that she was moving to Santa Cruz after going to extreme measures, including renting a house with another couple. Her story is in the sidebar to the Palo Alto story. Santa Cruz isn’t much of an answer. And in Sonoma, people are paying half a milll for houses that would go for $300K up here. Unbelievable but true.
