When you live in a tiny one bedroom apartment three blocks from the beach...well, it's heaven for a newlywed, right? Definitely.
Kris has tried to convince me that the baby can just sleep in the ottoman or laundry basket and we can stay put (an opinion which has put him on baby planning restriction until further notice -jk).
So where do we go? Do we stay on the beach and rent a bigger place? Do we buy since the market is dropping? If so, where do we buy? Visiting my parents in Texas this weekend (blog post to come) was great but reminded us once again of the sad reality of California real estate.
Just a quick example to illustrate.
Austin, Texas area : $529,900
Huntington Beach, CA: $574,900
