    I am so poor after buying our house in November it's ridiculous. I had to save up lunch money for a few weeks so I could afford to take my wife out to dinner and a movie. The Blazer gets almost no attention.

    But a couple houses in our neighborhood sold this week for $70,000 more than we bought ours for. $70,000 in 5 months. Not bad.

    Yup dang Bay Area... friends just bought a house in Sunnyvale and it's a fixer upper and they paid $430,00 for it!! It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with a 2 car garage.... it's nice but dang! I am moving into my grandma's old house.. 2 years ago we had it appraised and it was for $120,000... now last week this realitor left a card out front and said just from looking at the house out front he could get $175,000 for it! Holy cow! The housing market is going nuts in CA!!!
