Sign on the Dotted Line

July 27, 2011 at 5:18 AM 9 comments

Somebody just tell me where to sign on the dotted line and I’ll pack up my stuff and move to Fort Worth, Texas in a heartbeat.  Why would I move seeing as how I’ve never even been to Texas before?  I fell in love with a home and even more in love with its pricetag.

I’ve included a comparison of what $585,000 will get you in Fort Worth vs. Pac Heights (my neighborhood in San Francisco).  Which would you choose?


The Kitchen:

Living Room

Master Bedroom:

Dining room/area

I know my heart is in San Francisco but according to the song, aren’t you supposed to “leave” it here, which would mean a move?  I’ve been known to enjoy a rodeo or two; I think Texas and I would get along swimmingly.  I do own a cow head….

…pretty sure that’s all I need to justify the move.  The monthly mortgage payment on that home is what we pay in rent for our 700 square foot apartment.  Sorry if I just thoroughly depressed my Bay Area readers but please don’t move to Texas because we do have our fun here and I would miss you.  I promise, I’m really not going anywhere.

    The Ft. Worth home is undeniably beautiful…but imagine what you’d lose by leaving the Bay Area? I guess all of those amazing restaurants, museums, shops, etc. warrant the high price tag!

    Fort Worth is WONDERFUL. Truly a city with a heart. And I know a set of twins who would love to have you move nearby! 😉

    Is it bad that I think the apartment in SF looks rather nice for $585k?

    I notice home prices every time I leave California. I also notice that Fort Worth, TX will be 106 degrees today and nobody will leave their office or homes if they can help it. You could be strolling through Golden Gate Park today in perfect comfort. Good news for the rest of the week in Fort Worth is that the temperature will get down to a high of 101 later in the week . . . when the humidity rises and the thunderstorms roll in.

    If you do decide to move to Texas, at least go to Austin where you can hang by the Gfroerer’s pool! Can’t wait to see you guys this weekend!

    Amazed you could find anything for $585,000 in Pac Heights.

    I still pick SF; who wants to live in Texas?

    Dying over that kitchen and the amazing hardwoods. Nashville prices are fairly similar…we’re spoiled by cheaper square footage although northern Cal weather is so worth the pricetag 🙂
