Lazy is a virtue.
Lazy & intelligent: Leadership
Lazy & stupid: Management
Hardworking & intelligent: ICs :joy:
Hardworking & stupid: Unemployable. Get rid of them.

Running a property company would make you an US President.
Running a tech company would make you a Billionaire.
Your choice.

Many New Yorkers kept buying home in the last 10 years

OMG, here we go again with the Doomsday predictions of Bay Area RE. We survived a big earthquake and the great recession and came back STRONGER. At the end of the day, the Bay Area has EVERYTHING a person could want. Jobs, weather, diversity, activity, etc. Yes, you can’t be poor here, for sure. But, if you have some smarts the Bay can be an awesome place to live. Only winners and survivors can make the Bay home.

What do you mean? Look outside your window or if you are outside, what is the temperature like? What day is it? As I am writing from my home office, I can look to Ocean Beach and it looks lovely. Sunny if not downright warm. I can walk in my shorts for some dim sum to go and life is good. My nephew’s bride to be just landed from Japan and is about to start her life here. There is no other place I would want to be.

Oh, if that pic is truly of your wife, you are a lucky man, Sir. Beautiful. She would give my wife a run for the money…:wink:

Doubtful. It’s not just Amazon. Google hasn’t even finished their buildings. Facebook is still hiring to fill out their building. Plus, I can lookup the number of Seattle hires after me and current Seattle employee count any time.

HQ2 and HQ3?

CNBC’s Brian Sullivan earlier reported Amazon could split the proposed workforce and investments between Austin and Northern Virginia.

Damn… now I am under pressure to buy more FAST. No wonder those neighborhoods near The Domain becomes so VERY HOT. For the sake of disclosure, have already bought 2 SFHs in those neighborhoods, now I might have to speed up and buy buy buy 2-3 more SFHs before AMZN announcement.


#761

Amazon may announce this week. Buy today.


#762

Tell them to delay for another month. I am not ready to buy more.
I have booked air ticket to Austin this weekend upon this news to scout more houses (I use to wait patiently for bargains and good layout but now any houses will do), so I really need AMZN to delay the announcement.


Austin (neighborhoods with easy access to The Domain (2nd downtown))
