    Now I'm sh*tting bricks, we did it non contingent on the sale of our house. It's in a great area (actually were I grew up), however I'm not totally stoked on the house. It's needs to be totally updated, which I don't really care about. The positive side is I get my 3 car garage & 5th bedroom:thumb:

    They were asking $1,059,000 and got it for $1,040,000. I can do a lot of the remodling myself, I'm hoping we can do the whole house for around $100,000 - $150,000, which seems very doable. A house last month sold there that was totally fixed up for over $1.3.

    There is no tennis court, it's part of the association which also has a pool. And it would be $250K where you live cause no one wants to live where you're at.

    That part DOES suck!!!! Can't argue there. However it's the way it is here in the Bay Area, you wanna play, you gotta pay. It's all about location my friend.

    I don't understand the idea of "location location location" when people then go and build themselves a mini castle and never so much as lool out a window let alone go outside.

    Not directed at Brian, just something I've noticed locally.

    used almost all the $ from the sale of house# 1 to put down on house$2, plus 3 years ago houses were pretty cheap around here


    Cali is the only place I have been to, that I liked enough that I actually would want to move there

    Funny, even if the cost of living was the same as here, I wouldn't want to move to California.

    yea, no crap - that would be $150k around here, maybe a little more or a little less depending on the town/neighborhood it was in. And we don't have earthquakes, wildfires, etc.


    But back on topic - congrats on the purchase, and good luck selling yours and doing all the work on the new one. My wife and I just started looking
