Many lament the prices in the Bay Area but it's largely the same deal. There is only a very limited about of real estate that has the true Med. Climate and it's surely not enough of it to satisfy the demand.

That said, if one has the freedom and a few bucks the area 1 Hr. North of SF is amazing nice (Point Reyes and even inland Petaluma, etc.) and you can get something decent for "only" 400-500K and be near some of the most beautiful sights on planet earth.
It was a good solution for us too until we tired of it. We prefer being in one place year round now, close to family and able to commit 100% to one community. We are monogamous at heart.

Same here. For a few years we had another home in Asheville, NC. But it was a hassle going back and forth, expenses of two properties, splitting up our possessions, etc. For us one home is best - we can always travel.

Most people canít tell the difference between a Live Oak and a Laurel Oak. They look similar but couldnít be more different.
