Yes. I remember, and it wasn't that long ago, when people moved out there because they couldn't afford to live near civilization. Way back when rocks were soft, those areas were good places to ride dirt bikes. Who woulda thunk woods and farmland out in the middle of nowhere would ever be worth anything? But I suppose my neighborhood was out in the boonies at one time.

When I was a kid, I used to work with my Dad(He's a retired landscaper) and we worked in Blackhawk when homes there were $500,000-true story.

Back in 1989, My folks even almost bought a house off of Sycamore Valley but opted out cause the staggering price tag of $300,000(in prime Danville) seemed too much for them.

The price is per housing unit - most housing units in Pleasanton are single family homes, most in SF are condos. That would be my guess. A single family home in SF will still cost more than one in Pleasanton.

That's just based on recent transactions. Not everyone, by far, bought their homes at these ridiculous prices.

Is it true the bay is home to the richest people on planet earth?

It seems alot of folks in the Bay Area have very nice cars and homes so they must have lots of money cuz the average income for these cities is rich mans money.

I consider 6 figures to be rich so im going on that.

Well, around here 6 figures isn't always RICH - comfortable, perhaps, but it's really not that much for us. But yes, per capita, we do have a lot of wealthier people. This partly has to do with Silicon Valley, where a huge number of dot-com millionaires make their homes... and we also just have a higher average salary, since our cost-of-living is higher. An income of $50K will get you a cushy life in some places, but here it's just barely enough to pay rent.
