kurt....Ha! What makes you think I'm trying to sell you California? I couldn't care less what you think or what your predictions are.
Houses are expensive where I live but people make more money. I was a union construction worker. An eighteen year old right out of high school first period first year apprentice starts at $28 an hour plus great health care including dental and vision, a great pension and a 401plan. If he works all year that's 56K before overtime. A journeyman makes $56 an hour plus benefits. If he works all year that's 112K before overtime. If he's married and his wife has a decent job they're easily pulling in over 200K a year.
Your problem is that you use the Valley as the benchmark for home prices and wages, I hate to tell this but it isn't. There's a big world out there, you should check it out.
Homes where I live usually sell within three weeks and have multiple bids selling for sometimes hundreds of thousands over listening. I live in Alameda, here are some recent sales.

wally....so you can't find the videos that trump claims he saw of thousands of Muslims celebrating on roof tops in New Jersey when the trade centers fell either? I'm shocked, keep looking I'm sure they're out there somewhere. Or maybe trump just made that up....ya think?

kurt....the population of California increases every year. It's where everyone that wants to get away from the rest of the country lives. It's the eighth largest economy in the world with Jerry Brown running a budget surplus year after year.
All of my friends and neighbors are middle class and home owners. California is a place where hard workers are rewarded. It feels like living in another country which is the attraction that someone like you that's never been there would understand. I find it hilarious that you consider yourself an expert on a place you know nothing about.
I love living in California and the more I see what goes on in the rest of the country the more I love it. The best decision I've ever made in my life was moving to California. How about you, was staying in the valley the best decision you ever made?

Ha! there is a movement in California of Democrats registering as republican so they can vote for trump because trump is destroying the republican party and they just want to help.
This is no joke, they want to see what happens in Cleveland when trump shows up with the most votes and delegates and is denied the nomination. Or better yet the circus of that clown actually getting the nomination.

redeye....trump claims he watched television broadcasts of thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating when the twin towers fell. No such news reports that trump claims he saw exist and no one else says they saw the broadcasts your boy trump did. If anyone is drinking the kook aid it's you.
He also claims he's going to round up eleven million people and deport them, never going to happen.
He also claims he will build a wall along the boarder with Mexico and that Mexico will pay for it, never going to happen.
He also claims he is going to get American companies manufacturing overseas to move those jobs back to America and all the while he and his daughter that he wants to bang manufacture their clothing lines in Mexico, China, Vietnam and Milasia

redeye....you claim the government fudged the unemployment numbers, what do you call trumps claim that unemployment is 45%?
He also claims a US general committed mass murder of Muslims by shooting them with bullets dipped in pigs blood, which never happened.
He also claims he witnessed television reports of thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the trade towers coming down, which never happened.
