Welcome

So what is this blog all about? Well if you are anything like me, you live in San Francisco, and you love it. You want to raise your kids here. You want to spend your life here. Perhaps most importantly, you want to buy a house here. There's just one little problem: like most San Franciscans, you aren't particularly wealthy. And while you might be able to afford a modest home in this market, you don't neccesarily want to bet your life savings that it will keep it's value and not trap you in a tiny dump for the next ten years of your life or more.
There are plenty of local blogs about fancy houses and nice condos, and this blog may feature the occasional nice place too. But the point of this blog is to focus on affordable housing, or as close as San Francisco gets to it. It's to talk about great deals, and interesting strategies, upcoming neighborhoods, and ways to make it work for people who don't have six figure incomes, and maybe have a kid or two in the mix as well.
The goal here, and it's a lofty one I admit, is to be a blog for the rest of us. I hope you find it worth your time.

I hope we'll see lots of content about TICs - because if you're talking about affordable ownership opportunities, they're it (at least in parts of the City with multiunit dwellings).
