Say no to business travel on saturdays!  :redx:

Ironically, the Saturday would be tacking on some time in NYC/NJ to hang out with friends. smile.gif

I'd been planning to come on Saturday but if the meetup is Friday I'll be there!

Bumping this so we can get a proper headcount for drinks/dinner and make some reservations

Alright so we're all set with Cafe Zoetrope for the San Fran meetup on October 23 (thanks @GusW for the recommendation).

6:30p for drinks
7:30p dinner

If you can join us but haven't RSVPed, please do so we can let the restaurant know of the new headcount.

I lived in the bay area for the better part of ten years, working in the fidi and there was always a healthy bum population in that part of town. I just spent the last four days in the city and the situation is markedly worse than when I lived there. There are now packs of bums on seemingly every single block, and they are as gross and aggressive as ever. I also saw at least half a dozen drug deals going down. A beautiful location ruined by a disgusting city. Spent a lot of time in Marin and was reminded why I loved living there.

So is there a tech bubble or not, and if so how much will it affect the local housing market in the next year or so?  We've bid on a few houses the past couple months, each at 20% over list price but have been outbid by people bidding 40% over.  Seriously considering two others now, but am wondering if we should wait.  Looking at Inner Sunset or Richmond to be close to schools and my work.  And we hope to be settled in 6-9 months.  Do we wait a few months or no?

Possibly my favorite store in jr high.

Oh man, you picked a few days after our second is due.  Would love to make it but prob can't.

emptym, congratulations on the upcoming addition to the family! Didn't realize you guys were expecting.

 

I don't foresee any strong changes/corrections in the housing market in the city in the next year. Sorry to hear you're having trouble finding a place. Who knows, though? Maybe the world economy will collapse in the interim...

 

;)

Thanks SB.  

 

Seems like every day there's a couple articles and/or blog posts saying we're in tech bubble, and tech money's a large reason for high real estate prices.  Had lunch w/ a very smart friend who works for a major tech-focused venture captial firm, and he's renting his house instead of buying because he thinks a tech bubble will burst in the next year or two and with it real estate prices will fall.  But I agree that no one seems to know.

Interesting.  Thanks.  What's your interpretation of the numbers?

post #2892 of 3006

I take it to mean that even with the biggest economic downturn of the last 80 years, SF real estate barely stumbled. I don't see much hope for lower prices any time soon. Maybe fewer bidders per property? The actions of the planning department, board of supervisors, and the governments of surrounding cities are conspiring to keep SF real estate inflated.

I'm no expert but thinking a tech bubble will burst and send real estate prices in SF falling within a couple of years is unrealistic. I hope your friend is right. But I'd put money that's he's not.

In Sept. I had occasion to walk (twice, once rather late) between South Beach (4th and King) and the bad part of "Union Square" that is really for all intents and purposes the East Tenderloin. Kinda felt like a scene from Taxi Driver.
