Now would be a good time to sell in The Bay IMO. I know real estate growth is limited and the area will always be desirable but those prices just seem way to inflated and just not sustainable for the future.

Actually the 2007 median home price in the SF MSA as $887,000 so prices in the Bay right now actually seem way more realistic.

I'm not sure why folks are saying it's a good time to sell in expensive markets, or a good time to buy in cheap markets.

The issues are unrelated. An expensive market can be undervalued, and a cheap market can be overvalued. It depends on the local characteristics.

Oh ok, feel bad for those that bought during the high point of the bubble. You could be right about The Bay being able to maintain current price levels though if they already reached nearly a mill.

You should invest in your 4th favorite city (thats assuming it comes after SF, LA, and NYC).

Wow Chicago and Miami are literally less expensive than Austin, which I don't understand. Having been to all of these cities I noticed Austin for its size is particularly expensive real estate.

I wouldn't even think about selling if I lived in the bay area, the market is just now starting to recover. Those prices are going no where but up.
