A nurse. A lawyer. A teacher. An electrician. In this episode of Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast we talk about what kind of people we’ve worked with over the years to buy a home in San Francisco.
[00:21] San Francisco is an expensive city, it’s true. Even if you make a great salary, that doesn’t guarantee you’ll be able to buy a home. San Francisco isn’t also just a town for the extremely wealthy. We have worked with people from all walks of life who figured out a way to get in to the San Francisco real estate market. From creative types such as writers and surf board makers, to medical professionals and lawyers, to tech people and entrepreneurs as well as teachers, accountants, electricians and a variety of other professions.
[06:15] Previous generations would often buy a house they would live in for the rest of their life. Today, in San Francisco especially, people buy a house that they can afford to live in and that suits their needs today. If they are able to afford more that they can “grow” into, that’s great – but it may not necessarily make sense to wait. This is actually good advice for buying a property in San Francisco. Rather than waiting for an ideal house, something that works for your current situation may make it easier to make a switch later when opportunity and need arises.
