    Over priced is an understatement I visited them 4 times over the last few yrs and from what I could see!

    We went and looked at a 635 sq ft 1BR Apt that was selling for $397K and was 40 yrs old and needed tons of work.

    Yes I'm in LA area, San Gabriel Valley to be exact. I've been working since I was 16 but at that age, I never learned the value of saving, I wish I did. I have a college degree, never pursued anything else further because I didn't want to be in debt.
    Anyways I'm not saying this for people to feel sorry, it's a fact that most people that go to college can't make a decent living or catch up to economy..

    Yeah, I don't understand how folks make it there to be honest with the cost of rental housing you need to work 3 full time jobs.

    Damn here are some recent stats


    Long Beach, California


    • Median income: $58,314

    • Income needed if you’re a homeowner: $138,698

    • Income needed if you’re a renter: $124,706
    Located to the southeast of Los Angeles, Long Beach is another of the baker’s dozen where the income needed to live comfortably exceeds $100,000 for both renters and homeowners. It’s also a city where that level is much lower for renters — with those choosing not to buy needing about $14,000 a year less than their counterparts shouldering a mortgage.



    L.A.

    • Median income: $54,501

    • Income needed if you’re a homeowner: $150,392

    • Income needed if you’re a renter: $136,208
    The country’s second-largest city is well-known for its sunny climate, palm trees and entertainment industry, but it’s possible that its high cost of living should be among its most notable traits. If you have a mortgage in Los Angeles, you’ll need over $150,000 in income to comfortably fit into the 50/30/20 budget, over $80,000 a year than the median earner makes.



    San Francisco

    • Median income: $96,265

    • Income needed if you’re a homeowner: $230,286

    • Income needed if you’re a renter: $164,214
    San Francisco is the most affluent city in this study, with a median income of almost six figures. Despite that, median earners there who own their own home are further from the income necessary to live comfortably than residents of any other city on this list. Even a six-figure income is less than half what you need to own your home and still spend just half your income on necessities in The City.

    San Jose, California

    • Median income: $96,662

    • Income needed if you’re a homeowner: $197,502

    • Income needed if you’re a renter: $143,670
    Of course, right next door in San Jose, incomes are even higher. Yet, the median income remains over $100,000 short of what you need to live comfortably while owning your own home, but it’s over $30,000 closer than it is in nearby San Francisco.

    Here when prices go up we call in an air strike and firemissions. Keeps the taxes down.....

    Looks like you had a great time! I just got back yesterday from Big Bear. Stayed a week. It was so nice to be out of the city. I'll be hosting the Crab Flats Campout II on 8/24 with my Tundra group(any Toyota welcome). It'll be an easy run, 3N16 and White Mtn. IMG_3057.jpg I know that place! IMG_0483.jpg

    I had an absolute amazing time, it was a great group of people. It was a fun trail to hit up...
