Money Or Happiness?


#121

Ok, you two (@harriet and @wuqijun) may be on to something…


#122

More single person households = more demand for RE. Buy, buy, buy.

I always wonder how they separate for those comparisons. Are they talking about single = no relationship at all or are they including people in a relationship but not married.


#123

Single people are having more sex than married people.

Or they are secretly together :rofl:

From what I heard, many ex-divorced prefer to live together without marriage.


#124

Sounds like they’re not rich anymore if everything’s expensive.

I’ll take health, house and money, thank you. Can’t go wrong.


#125

Yeah… No kidding. Kids put a damper on sex in a variety of ways.


#126

We only have 14% asians in Chula Vista, but we still have a Ranch 99 right in the middle of it.


#127

Thumbs up on your new town. :+1:


#128

San Francisco is the only place that didn’t get infected by ranch 99. :rofl:


#129

Wait, are you back north sheriff?


#130

Interesting… why?


#131

no, still in Chula Vista.


#132

Because Chinese shops were already established in SF prior to the ranch 99 infusion.
Ranch 99 can only set itself up at places without such shops which they are unable to successfully compete against (or maybe just not as profitable as in places without these shops to begin with).

Same with New York.


#133

Not many other options over here. Nearest one is a Korean market 16 miles away. When I lived in San Jose I used to shop at Fresco more than Lion. Its a combo spanish chinese market at eastridge. Their prices were better. Manch might be familiar with it.


#134

I went to fresco once to check it out. But we usually shop at Manila Oriental Market that was walking distance to our house.

That’s also a Manila Oriental Market in SF!


#135

Where exactly? Someone had suggested we move to Oakland, but as far as I could tell none of the schools in the $1M house range were any good at all and Piedmont was $2M


#136

Oakland has great private schools…Oakland and Berkeley combined are a much more interesting place to live than the Peninsula…A real city…Plus easy access to SF


#137

UGH! We don’t want to be paying privates for three kids. At that point better to stay in RWC.


#138

Walnut Creek… over 2000 sqft houses around $1M with good schools (900 API). But hurry! Prices increasing fast.


#139

Walnut Creek is cheap because it is one hour from SV without traffic…2 hrs at commute time


#140

Um, commute to SF then. There are tech jobs there.
