I caught the news story from a local SF TV News outlet:

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/02/08/san-francisco-bay-area-mass-exodus-residents/

It looks like a lot of people in that area are fed up and ready to move.  The people that are left won’t care…

I’ve met quite a few in here in the Triangle region of NC from Ca, both south and north. It is expensive to live there, and home ownership escapes many.

I work with some people out there in non-profit human services that have a lot of trouble hiring. They aren’t able to pay people enough to allow employees to live in the area so people have to commute which is inconvenient when you think of the how far out they typically have to live.

Yep no thanks!  Nice area to visit, not a nice area to live if you aren’t making the big bucks.

Charleston/Mt. Pleasant/ Daniel Island and all the local “anti-development” groups are trying their best to force those housing prices here.

I get you want to make it political but the reality is, it is so awesome people can’t afford to live there. Most nice places are like that.

Chapel Hill is most expensive place in NC.

Damn free market and individual choice

I really don’t want to make it political and I won’t…but many things in our lives do have a political element to it…I chose not to focus on it…This issues, as you very correctly said has a free market element to it that I agree with.

I’ll take you at your word.

But I do find it funny how conservatives always want t take shots at California and New York. Rest assured I never want to live in Nebraska or Alabama.

If I come across an article involving a mass Exodus from those areas you pointed out I’ll post it.

There was never an influx to that extent. In fact the prairie Midwest is dying out.
