That’s fair. We’re from Miami, so sorta similar to Bay Area prices where we used to live.

Definitely exaggerated a bit on my part. It’s cheaper but of course doesn’t compare to the flyover states.
My partner and I are in a weird place as far as home buying goes so it's just about the easiest way to get me fully fired up :o

Apparently everyone is moving to Smellwood :mamoru: and that’s a reasonably priced area. Laurelhurst and Hollywood are nice too.

I mean yeah I moved here from the Bay Area, it's relatively less expensive. But mad cheap seems like a silly claim.

We look at listings around $500 sq/ft thinking it’s a major discount from the bay. I caught up with a friend today and he said single detached in south SJ (think Blossom Hill area) starts at $1.2 million.

As for here, we’ve recalibrated from “what a bargain” to “we might be house poor”.

My parents live in Saratoga (but like you could throw a rock to San Jose), their house has literally gone up 15x in value since they bought in the 80s o_O

The problem is the only thing I care about is garage/shop space and I'm not single anymore :mamoru:

also to just be blunt about it, she has colon cancer and it's complicated trying to sort out how to get married/buy a house together

Highly desirable area that’s why. Campbell and Saratoga lot and house sizes are fairly big, and close enough to the FAANGs. I loved visiting there.

Oof sorry man. Sounds rough. Hope she’s hanging in there and doing okay. The west hills are reasonably priced too. Dunno if being near OHSU would help.

that top golf will be nice but I bet it will be so crazy for awhile. The one in Houston was busy for years until they built the other ones.
They have one in Kirkland or Bellevue or something but it's virtual golf with a screen, not an actual range. I think this one is gonna have 2-300 hotel rooms as well.

Yeah, why would they put it where the two main highways split off, right between SeaTac, Seattle, and the eastside... should be in Lynwood iirc :rofl:
I just don't want to drive that far drunk back to Everett. :mamoru: I'm kidding of course.

I noticed they have a Top Golf Lounge in Kirkland.

There is a perfect place up here in Everett where a BBQ/Golf range was. Closed a few years ago after the owner passed away. Not sure what they gonna do with the land. Would be a weird spot though for a Top Golf cuz of it's location in the middle of an industrial/commercial zone.
