The life that we have verses the one we desire sometimes is very different.
Somehow we think for the beautiful women that live in San Francisco that have purchased property or are renting a residence that they can comfortably afford, live a life closer to the one that they desire.
The amenities of living in San Francisco are just that great.
Located here in Northern California and having grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area we can confirm that just going to get something to eat, some coffee to drink and sitting around enjoying people watching while you are surrounded by scenic mountains and majestic water makes even the simplest experience magical.
In working with some of the gorgeous female grapplers who live and work in San Francisco, to a person, they can’t say enough about how much they love San Francisco.
Many employers understand this as well.
As shared at salesforcetower.com, “Talent loves SF. Employees want to live in San Francisco because of cultural attractions, incredible weather, and energy and vitality. The best are drawn here. The Bay Area is home to more than 25 colleges, universities and graduate schools, resulting in over 7,000 college degrees per square mile and unparalleled access to venture capital. Over 40% of total VC investments in the U.S. are made here.”
That’s intriguing and impressive.
So reading about the booming and extremely expensive housing market is not surprising.
On June 7, 2017, sf.curbed.com reported, “A market report from Paragon Real Estate Group lays it all on the line: “San Francisco median house sales price soars to $1,500,000 in May.”
Suffice to say, that’s an all-time high.
Also of note, the median condo price in San Francisco went up to $1.2 million in May, another all-time record.
For perspective, back in 2000 a three-bedroom house in the city averaged $543,059—roughly $786,000 after inflation. So now the price of most homes is almost double the price of a larger than average home less than 20 years ago.”
It comes across as one of those situations where you hope that you are your parents bought early.
Trying to pay for it with a high paying salary is challenging, especially if you are a woman.
The New York Daily News reported that according to census data, “The median salary of women in the San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont area is $54,600.”
That salary in many cities would go a very long way.
Not so in San Francisco.
In a May 24, 2016 article at sf.curbed.com, they lay out the challenging news in simple terms. “The salary before taxes you would need to buy a house in San Francisco at median prices declined 2.5 percent since the end of last year (about $3,800), bringing the recommended annual salary for homebuyers in the city to only $144,196, according to the mortgage firm HSH.
We don’t even need to tell you that that’s the highest in the nation, as it has been the last 13 times HSH has conducted its quarterly survey of mortgage affordability (or the lack thereof).”
Okay, we get the point and it is sharper than Twin Peaks.
Still, if you want to live out your dream and purchase in San Francisco, why not pretend for a moment that you can afford to live there.
If not, can’t you at least live there vicariously?
Sure you can and we found a few real estate companies that would love to make your every amenities wish come true.
