sounds disastrous until you look at the actual number, instead of the percent change annualized.

on the order of 3k, up from 2k people moved from SF.

only 136k from all of CA, out of what 40M?


No doubt FCM, what matters is the quality of those leaving. Just a few high quality can skew that number significantly.  It has been my experience that they are the ones we would like to keep...steady, high earners.  What is the quality of those who are coming or stay?

In case you want to escape the California traffic and move to Texas. Let me tell you there is a lot of traffic on the I-35 in Austin, and West Loop I-610 in Houston. Tbh, the media never or rarely mentioned about the traffic.

People in Texas are actually excited for the high speed train that connects Dallas and Houston.

If you are gonna build High speed rail then Texas probably will do it right.  Will come in on time and under budget...

The company estimates that the construction for the project will take up to six years, with a total cost of around $20 billion. The train will use the same technology as the Shinkansen bullet trains in Japan, which can reach speeds of more than 200 mph.

Unlike our morons who run things into the ground, end up producing nothing and stealing vast amounts of taxpayer money...

After 12 years of delays, mismanagement, and political gridlock, the total cost estimate for the California High-Speed Rail Authority (CHSRA) has reached $100 billion. Initially budgeted at $35 billion, former California Gov. Jerry Brown’s dream of uniting California’s coastal metropolises and parts of the Central Valley has transformed into a disjointed, mismanaged fiscal nightmare with rising costs every single year following its inception

...and the hits just keep on com'n!!

Census: Texas gains Congress seats, Calif. loses first time

For the first time in 170 years of statehood, California is losing a congressional seat, a result of slowed migration to the nation’s most populous state, which was once a symbol of the country’s expansive frontier.

The reshuffling of the congressional map moved seats from blue states to red ones, giving Republicans a clear, immediate advantage. The party will have complete control of drawing the congressional maps in Texas, Florida and North Carolina — states that are adding four seats.

But you still live in California.
All this whining and complaining. Wipe your fake tears away.

Texas utility grid like no other state in the US. They still have not fixed the problem. Point the finger and blame renewable energy. They do not get it.

Explained it years ago in this thread, unfortunately,  if you re read much of what I said back then came true...proven just today as we lose a congressional seat and Texas gains three.

Can't catch a break,  Bad to work here AND now bad to retire here.  Will I be only one left here soon?

If you hate California so much, please move.

Thank you.

Actually, just the opposite it true.  Unless we recognize the flaws and discuss ways to fix them without denying their existence we will someday ALL wake up in a place we "hate".  As a native I would rather fix it than run away  or deny it.  As I said, I have substantial skin in this game.  I own real estate and investments here, I was born raised and educated here, I make a good living here, my family is here, my children go to school here and I don't plan on going anywhere, anytime soon.  The place we live is privileged, but not perfect and without room for improvement.

Real estate and investments can always be sold. Btw - you can rent your house. Most likely be cash flow positive. (Contact your local RE agent for advice.)

Just be sue your born and raised in California. It doesn’t mean that you have to stay here.
You promote Texas, but you never talk about the $1000 plus utility bill, talk about the traffic.

We all know why you do not leave California for Texas. Because it is a lot better here.

so triggered...again you clearly didn’t read what I wrote, (try the part in red). I don’t blame anyone but the politicians and the fools who voted for them.  I have never complained about my life. I got it pretty good but then I can afford it.

News flash: you can rent your property. Also, you don’t need to be a resident California to sell your investments. I guess if you bought California municipal bonds, if you want to be tax free you have to file taxes in a California. (not investment advice) But I am sure that is not the case.
