sick of Cali

If it wasn't for my job, I would already live in vegas. I am never ever going to be able to buy a house in Cali. (unless somewhere in the desert where there is no chicks) My dad gave me a badass job offer, he is a saftey engineer & can get me a job in Vegas as steel framer. If it wasn't for my fat job now I would already be gone. I have been saving for a house but I will never afford to get one in Cali unless my parents pass away & hand me their's. (pretty pathedic to think like that huh?) It's the truth it is a rip. Avg house in My town is $560,000. Good deal huh Plus in Cali i can't have long tube headers, a turbo, cams, & whatever else. Alright I am done feeling sorry for myself now. lol

That's cool then. We almost need another earthquake for the houses to drop. Most people in Cali don't even own their house in their lifetime.

well duh dude, look where thousand oaks is, youre basically just paying to live in so cal.

up here in the valley a 1bdrm apartment is 570ish. still alot compared to 400 my freinds ex is paying in florida for a 2 bedroom. but oh well thats the curse of cali.


and dude i so want to live in vegas too. ever since i went there for vacation it felt like i was home. and while i was there i checked out some new houses, 140-180k for a 1600sqft brand new house, complete with pool, central heating and air, everything that makes for a 300k house in cali. and that is why vegas is growing so insanely fast. even this one bus driver i had a chat with for a good 2 hours said he cant believe how much the city has spread in just the past year, housing is definately on the boom there.

plus 0% sales tax is cool. and anywhere in vegas youre only 10 minutes from the strip. how badass is that.

sounds like a good investment, you could probably sell a house for a good bit more than you paid in a couple years.

exactly, with such a big housing boom that more than likely has just started, you could do just that. or you could buy 2 vegas houses for the price of 1 cali house, wait a few months, turn around and sell the extra house for prolly 50k more than what you got it from, then get a corvette and cruise the strip. sounds like a plan to me.

I want to move sooo bad but there is still a couple chicks I have been tryin to get on first. lol lol Plus I don't want to leave my job but they might not be around for five years. I like eclipse's idea. It is a good investment. I could start @ like $17 an hour. I will miss Cali though & vegas isn't hot or anything considering I will be working outside. lol

I used to party in Davis, and as far as thousand oaks go, i live about 1.5 miles from there, in Simi. God damn right Cali sucks, my rent is going through the roof And the worst part about Cali is staring through the window at some good looking long tube headers knowing that my car will never get the pleasure to wear em.

Just let me know when and where, and by the way, can your predator be used on my car too, i could throw some money at you if so. i drive through thousand oaks everyday

California is not ALL THAT BAD. I don't would personally like to live somewhere else too, but I bet you if you lived out of Cali. you would miss a lot of things that you take for granted right now. Perhaps some convience things. 01gttype, I thought Davis was pretty awesome when I went there. Do you go to UC Davis?

Everybody pack up and follow me to Phoenix when I move back. You guys are cool and I need more people to come down. It's a smaller and hotter version of L.A. for those who haven't been there, and it's cheaper!

Totally agree, If I didn't want to move to Vegas I would move to Phoenix. My car would be a beast with longtubes, cams, & ported heads. Maybe an 11 second n/a terror.
