Love Cali, moved to Chicago for work but now remote so back to Cali we go. Maybe back to Bay Area once rents decrease further as more people leave. We are Kiwi's with Green Cards so could also return to Covid free NZ.
Tired of paying Bay Area prices and Palm Springs provides a high quality of life 1/2 the cost..
If I need to be working and living at home, I’d rather have a house and a pool for the same price as a small apartment in LA which is less than 2 hours away.
Reduce costs by 60%, less traffic, improves quality of life!
