Potential Buyers Should Read This Thread

Come on! Who doesnt factor in property taxes and other expenses when buying a house? I don't buy it, I'll take troll bait for $2000 Alex.

I didn't read it all, but I sure hope some women responded to remarks of not raising their kids because they 'need' dual income.

It all boils down to priorities and family should always come first (before houses, cars, vacations). A few posts there rightly pointed out how their priorities get skewed by trying to keep up with the Joneses.

A modest 2bed/1ba home (or a condo in Novato -- I got one I am thinking of selling ;-) ) and a used Hyundai should be adequate for anyone but we humans have a tendency to confuse needs with desires.

You give people way too much credit.

Not everybody out there is as smart, attractive, wealthy and sophisticated as everyone in the Bay Area.
