Those that live in the city centre canít afford the homes there and often rent out garages, apartments literally smaller than my master bedroom, or share the home with other families.

As I said previously whatís great about a city where I earn a high wage and still live like a poor person?
This is true. Sure many people cannot afford the actual city. St is extremely small compared to say Los Angeles or New York. But even in those gigantic cities people canít afford them and have to live in suburbia. Suburbia has existed decades before the tech boom.

Suburbia exists for many reasons the most common being white flight or the point you make expense.

Point is many work in the city and commute in. Many also live and work in the surrounding areas and make it great living as well.

I know people who live in actual sf are rich or their families owned the home for a very long time. Yes many students live in studios. None of this is exclusive to sf.

Is it hard for a 20 year old couple with a kid to buy a house in the Bay Area. Yes. But the same couple is gonna have issues in Birmingham Alabama. Or San Antonio texas. I concede it would be harder in the Bay Area.

Have to pay for the great weather, things to do, food and women.
