Yeah, but didn't you say you were living in the ghetto, slaw?
I feel you, dogg. I'm paying 925 for a cracker jack box in LA of all places. 477 square foot studio. I mean, it's nice, and in a nice area, but still...that's almost as bad as The City! I live downtown, and I swear, LA has the strangest Downtown of all. At nights and on weekends, it is DEAD! No one. Not a soul.
The way I justify my rent is that I don't have to drive to work, and I go home for lunch. Still, tough to live on $45K when you're dropping almost $12k a year on your house. That doesn't include electricity either..

you're lucky...I have to freaking drive to work.......I only live 20 minutes away but the traffic here is some major SUCKAGE.....because of this it takes me almost an HOUR to get to work...GEEEZ

Yeah, I know what you mean about the SF property prices. My family, way back in the day, bought an apartment a block from Union Square. It's now worth close to a mill. It's cooler to own it, because when you visit, you're right down town, or if I move there, hello, rent free. But I cannot imagine trying to rent.
A funny story: one of my father's employees, his kid went down to work for an i-net start up. So he heads down to the local chinese supermarket, and I guess these places have message boards people post on there. So he calls one guy up, takes a look at the place: it's a house on Nob Hill, I think, that or Pacific Ridge (I forgot the locale, above USF). The rent: $400. Not only that, the guy that rents it out is in China for 4 months at a time He's been there 8 months, and the renter has stayed there a total of 7 nights. Is that phat or what? Not only that, he gets to keep his rent until he sees the guy next. Basically the guy just needed someone to keep up his place while he was away on business. You could still find a place like that, cross your fingers!

nah, it's not really in the ghetto. it's just that people always call it that. could be much worse!!

I pay $400 to share a rooom in a two bedroom apt. Not that bad huh. Well, these f*@kers in irvine raise the rent like $300 each month.

For $1600, a month, it better be a pretty phat pad.
yeah, the bay area sucks as far a trying to find a place to live. it doesn t matter what city you are in. what the bay area has to offer as far as jobs and recreation more than makes up for it though. i've been all over the country, and i havent seen very many places that i could live after living here for so long.

Yeah.....I agree...I grew up in the BAy Area and I don't think I could live anywhere else. For one thing this place never gets boring....there's always something to do no matter what time of year it is. The cost of living SUCKS though but I guess you can say it's a small price to pay......
how many other people who post here do you think can go surfing on a sunny day and turn around and go snowboarding that same day? noone has it as good as us. when i lived in berkely i was 2 1/2 hours away from the snow and an hour away from the beach, and then we have all the stuff in between! now i'm in a crappy boring suburb to save money, but f!ck it!
