I live in a 3400 sqft ranch on a lake with hundreds of square feet of frontage 20 minutes from downtown Charlotte without traffic and 1.3 acres of land for 600k. The weather is nice and it appreciated ~80k in a little over a year.

Are market prices even remotely comparable to affording that kind of luxury in SV? Hell no.

It's beyond comprehension for me to justify the cost of living out there. I'd be trading in for a postage stamp in an overly populated area.

Sure, but do you have excrement-covered sidewalks, belligerent panhandlers, and cockroach-infested restaurants?

Would it be just linear feet of frontage?
