    As an avid fan of the Million Dollar Listing series including both Los Angeles and New York, I'm pretty excited about this. Million Dollar Listing coming to San Francisco. Sneak Peek. Premiere in July on Bravo. I saw a couple of homes with my ex in the city when I was there! Gee, I bet the prices would be very outrageous on this series too.

    SF is an amazing city and always a "treat" to visit. However, its far to cold for my blood. I will stay in the SD, So-Cal, HW locations!

    ^^ lol really, SF's weather is not that bad. It's about high 50s, low 60s to about high 70/80s in the summer. It's definitely a different lifestyle and feeling than SD/SoCal for sure. I'd definitely move back if my job take me there. I miss SF a little bit, and there's this guy on my FB in SF, I think he keeps stalking me. LOL icon_redface.gificon_twisted.gif

    **This is just a very side track question, there's no electronic music scene in SoCal at all (well except for maybe Coachella). Raves/Electronic music are pretty big in SF. Even the clubs feel different. Lol, why is that, all the SoCal club goers listen to Hip Hop/Pop and all the NorCal people listen to Electronic??? lol It's like The Abbey vs. Ruby Skye ! icon_lol.gificon_twisted.gificon_twisted.gif

    A Million dollar listing in SF is a 2 bedroom 1 bathroom 1909 fixer.

    You won't find any EDM in any gay club in SF. Burning man and special underground events are the only place to find it.

    The only thing that is high 70s/80s in that city in the summer is the average age of men walking around in the Castro.

    I lived there, the summers are miserable. It's 57 degrees there right now and cloudy, and it's noon. That's actually considered a good day, since most of the time its just overcast.

    ^^ Lol are you saying that there are NO hotties dudes in SF in their 20s, 30s, or 40s?? lol booo, you've seen the Looking series right?? !!! Lol I agreed that the weather can be a little bit cold, dismal sometimes but hey try to live somewhere where it gets like 99F in the summer, then you can appreciate it. As for the men, Yes, SF does have an older crowd of men daddies, leather soma types but hey I didn't have problem meeting younger guys when I was there. icon_redface.gif Cheers !!

    I'm a fan of the New York version of the show, and am happy to learn they're doing a San Francisco version. I'll look forward to seeing it.

    As for real estate prices here, yes - it is crazy, like the wild wild west. Prices are up over 30% in the last two years. Buyers are making offers for houses at over asking price, with no contingencies very often. There are often multiple offers on a house when it hits the market, unless it is expensive, and by that I mean over $3 million. It is not uncommon for there to be more than a dozen offers on a house, all coming in within a week of the listing being offered. Amazing. A seller's market here right now. BUT, this has happened before. Things will return to normal again. It's just that with all S.F. has to offer - the technology industry, the weather, tons of things to do and see, Silicon Valley nearby, the Napa Valley nearby, Monterey-Carmel-Pebble Beach nearby, this is a place that tons of people want to live.

    The young people in SF are mostly computer guys. Not my thing.. I'd take a San Deigo surfer/ navy guy, a Chicago cornfed white boy, a southern gentleman, or a Colorado ski and mountain stud any day. Now if only they would feel the same about me, then we have somethin' going icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm over on the easy bay now and it's been in the 80's and 90's lately. Can't wait to get over to "the city" (as locals seem to call it) and cool off a bit.

    San Diego is perfect for me and I was out hiking naked all last week and it wasn't too cold. I also jog around Hill-Crest and have fun at Balboa Park.

    Rents are UP in SD by 250.00 per month with the average cost about 1,500.00. I guess that's a deal compared to SF. Hey, it's only a 6 hr drive from SD......

    I've only been to Hillcrest twice, it's a nice little area, definitely not WeHo or the Castro. SD to SF is about 9 hrs right?? lol I'm in OC, about 1 hr 45 mins to San Diego and about 7 hrs drive to San Fran. I think it depends on which part in SF you rent or want to live in, if I end up moving up there for work, I'd definitely have to get a roommate. I saw rental ad a while back, about $850 medium size room/in the Castro area, huge 3 bedroom house and yes with car parking. (Another gay-friendly roommate). (They don't have nude beaches in LA or OC, just Blacks beach in SD and Baker in SF). hm, why is that?? lol

    This thread reminds me of two things:

    >The apocryphal Mark Twain quote:

    "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

    [Interesting exegesis on the true source of this quote:
    http://www.anchorbrewing.com/blog/the-coldest-winter-i-ever-spent-was-a-summer-in-san-francisco-say-what-says-who/]

    However, it certainly is true. The hot summer air of the interior wafts out over the Pacific Ocean with its cold California Current, building a big fog bank, which then comes in on its little cat feet to San Francisco. When it is over 100ยบ in the Central Valley in summer and one is heading for San Francisco, even the natives can scarcely believe (and occasionally even forget) to pack the soon-to-be-needed sweater or jacket!


    >The famous Herb Caen dictum:

    "Isn't it nice that people who prefer Los Angeles to San Francisco live there?"

    (Still can't read the Chron without missing his column...grin!)

    ^^^ San Francisco gets pretty hot in the summer now, up to the mid high 80s. NOt so much in the 60s anymore, I'd blame Global warming for this.

    I was doing a little research a couple days ago, those 7 painted ladies Victorian homes on Steiner/Alamo Square, one of the home was up for sale like $3,999,999 million. Whoa, I thought it'd be more than that, such an iconic house. Remind me of Full house and the Olsen twins every time I see it. icon_biggrin.gif
