Me and Wife have a total combined TC of 160. We have a great house that has appreciated 80% in 3 years. Sitting on top of a hill with 5 mile vistas on 1.8 acres. Gigabit internet. Neighbors, can barely see them. Hundreds of trees on property. Drive time for me to downtown, 20-45 mins based on level of traffic. Great shopping area 5 mins away. Great schools.
Now go filter for 1+ acre house in the bay area, with a 30-45 min drive time. You are looking at like 10+ million. There. Debate solved. #seattle #sanfrancisco #bayarea #austin
Seems you need conviction that you made the right choice?
