Sacramento is a shit hole.

Huh. Weird how they focused on just one of the two options

found the California capital tying with Miami, Florida

Oh. Right. The source.

Stuff like this is silly. NYC, SF, Seattle, Jackson, Aspen etc etc etc are all far less affordable than sacramento.

My first thought. The cheapest you can find a room to rent for here in Teton County is like $1500, unless you know somebody that owes you a favor. In reality, it’s more like $2000.
Yeah it's kinda the same here, although just a tad cheaper I think. Which is NOTHING like sacramento.

That metric they're using is horrendously misleading.

I think the difference is people WANT to live in your area vs NOBODY wants to live in Sacramento, yet it's STILL expensive.

It used to be that Auburn, Folsom and El Dorado Hills were not part of Sacramento. Now it's just one continuous city all the way.

They do though. It has a very gentrified business district now, short drive to SF, and is about the same drive to the mountains as denver is to the rockies, without having to shovel snow. The entire state gov't is there, which itself is huge, but like with any capital city, that's also a lot of jobs that spring up around that gov't structure.

Everybody still thinks of sacramento as the rail yard shit hole it was 20 years ago but much has changed. The neighborhoods JM is referencing is proof. Most of those job commuters are going into the city. Those suburbs have absolutely exploded. And they're even closer to the hills for the outdoorsy types.

Sac is now really no different from places like Boise, SLC, Denver, Seattle...... Sushi and Thai for the honkeys with driveable spots to get instabangers with your sweet new ibis, and your overpriced "cabin" by the ski areas.

It's personal hell on earth to me but so are all those other cities I just listed. City size-wise and surrounding suburbs are actually a lot like portland, and the city proper has over 3 times the population.

Same thing is going on with Reno for all the same reasons but people still think it's just a trashy casino town because they haven't been there in the last 20 years. Reno real estate is now comparable to Tahoe. That used to be the affordable escape when I first moved here. Now that's all fucked up too.

Yeah, I honestly haven't been to Sac since '89. But it's really no different than my shit town here. We are only 30 minutes from downtown and don't require a mountain or river crossing to get there. But Intel and Nike bought farmland west of downtown and the "silicon forest" grew up around those. Over the last few years, folks realized that just a bit north is cheaper, still in Oregon and still have access. That's why our place went from $175k in 2010 to $500k+ now (the house next to the zombie house is listed for $625k).

The locals are freaking out because there are 2 Thai places, a sushi joint and we now have TWO food cart pods (only 5 carts total, but still). The voter base went from VERY red to pretty split. I know over half my neighborhood is liberal, even with 4 Trump flags in it. :rofl:

kidwoo hates all pants, and the tighter the pant the more the hate. Thus the yogapant as the ultimate sign of hate.
actual photo of kidwoo in westy's head



a diametrically opposed duality of pants-free and 'most pants possible'

when taken to extreme, all the pants is the correct route to no pants IE: pant praxis

Ignoring the fascinating talk about trousers. Could be worse, someone could just steal and sell your house:

cops!

Helpful as always!

"At that point the police said, 'Well, there's nothing further we can do here. This is a civil matter; you need to leave the house and contact your solicitors.'"
