But not just income tax, sales tax, its also just all the little fee's and fines for everything you can think of. You get bled dry in CA but for some reason most of us stay. I stay just because of family, friends, where I grew up etc....no weather is nice enough to endure this lol.
You are exactly correct. In Carmel it's pretty much the handed down houses from generations. Would be almost impossible for a new family to buy one unless they are flowin in the green. Pebble beach is even more. As is Monterra. Just an empty lot goes for a cool mil there. Monterey is a bit more reasonable but just the cost of living is outragous in this area. The younger generations tend to move away cause its too hard to start here.
