Thanks for posting this. I tried to bring it up a while back on the Phoenix forum and got shut down instantly. Glad we are finally talking about it.

Boy are they. I am currently having a dispute with my new Cali neighbors. The people across the street are from San Francisco, how do I know? They have 49er stickers on every thing and stickers on their cars for San Francisco area colleges. They are renters. Some company bought the house across the street then rented it out. The house rents for $1700/mo., I saw it on Zillow.

My beef with them is that we live in Vail on a narrow street where there is no parking signs on their side of the street. The weeks they moved in there were tons of people and cars coming and going. I thought nothing of it but 3 weeks later same cars are coming and going. The front of my nice house has become a parking spot for an ugly 1982 Camaro, a Chevy trailblazer with a giant wreck on the rear end with peeling paint and newer Honda. They have 7 cars that I have seen coming and going. Some people in the house are Mexican but some are white. So...I think what is going on is these renters brought in extra people to supplement their income. We have strict rules about street parking "vehicles may not be street parked for more than 48 hours in a 7 day period." i.e. The idea is only visitors should be parked on the street. My neighborhood has few cars parked on the street since most houses have 3 car garages and 3 more outside parking spots. Their house happens to only have a 2.5 car garage which they put 7 gazillion moving boxes of crap into with no extra pad. So 2 cars park in the driveway then 3 park in front of my house and 1 parks in-front of my neighbor.

So I have never been a fan of Californians of any political persuasion. I had similar disputes in Portland and the first time I lived here. I'm beginning to think Californians are just so used to living 9 to a house cause that's the only way they can afford it in Cali that it just becomes modus operandi when they move somewhere else...

I need to stop being so poor so I can buy some acreage and not ever have to worry about neighbors again.
Crap, so sorry to hear of this. (I have friends in Vail, and was also looking at that area.)

If I had to deal with the situation you're dealing with, I'd make a call to code enforcement. (Local constabulary takes a dim view of "taking care of business" like this.)
It's a sad state of affairs if someone has to buy a coupla hundred acres to insulate them from neighbors from Hell, but so be it...(If I gotta do this, then Idaho is back in the running.)

Purely observational but in my little section of a large subdivision, of the two houses on the market the past 60 days both were snapped up by Californians. Going to be another couple of houses hitting the market early this year, so will be interesting to see if they go to out of state buyers as well.

Fact of the matter is that there is a surge of people retiring. Many are looking to places to stretch their retirement income.

There has also been a big increase in out of state plates in CA, but you don't hear people whining about it.

Why would Californians whine about new residents? After all, they are getting new suckers to share current resident's tax burden.

Trump has done more good for this nation in 3 years than Biden and his cronies will every do in a 100 years (minus the 40+ years he has already been in politics). Facts.
He's done more good for the working class than anyone else in the last 40 years. What he hasn't done is help out our new techi uber class. Those that want everything manufactured in China and wide open borders for foreign nationals who work for pennies on the dollar for those jobs they cannot ship to China. Y'know, like Biden their new president.

Are they trying to change California into something like they left? Are they doing that?

We have the very same problem here in Arkansas.
