Many people disagree that SB county is not desirable. I love living here. Hope that others can find a place to live they love too.

Not only that but they're no longer affordable.

Yes, that is one of factors of undesirability that exist.

Just came back from Houston. Nice city but no way I could live there. My friends moved there last year from Upland and with property taxes and flood insurance there is an absolutely no cost savings. Besides the summers are horribly humid. They would like to move back but no way can they afford too.

There are going to be a lot of people regretting their move from a temperate climate. People just don't realize how much of a change it is. It's BRUTAL. Especially if you grew up in the West. I had a lot of misconceptions and assumptions when I moved to North Alabama. I thought it was the "tropics." I did not know that it is at the base of the Appalachian range. It SNOWS here. It rains A LOT. It's cloudy A LOT. If you don't like that kind of weather it's a huge adjustment. I've been here three years and I'm still not adjusted, just resigned.

Saving money and being away from friends and relatives in exchange for the foregoing? Nope. Many of my friends from decades ago have wisely decided and/or actually been able to stick it out in Southern California. One couple moved to the middle of Texas after living near the beach for over 50 years. Seems grandchildren are important enough to make the sacrifice (adult kids moved to Texas).

It was a situation where I did not have a choice. That's why people "just move." And no, I'm not going to explain that to you. You do understand that sometimes people have no choice?
