This is my idea of freedom in heaven, to be sitting in these trees watching as the sun slowly sets, the golden tones of color slowly becoming darkness. You would not believe the smell in these woods, its a perfume , a clean feeling to your lungs. Why does the dream I have have to be so costly? And costly almost is too small a word for how much it takes to live back in CA right now. A home on this stretch of Skyline will cost an average of 1.2 million, yep... million. Now the views and nature around you make this price worth it, however what will the mortgage be for you? 7 thousand dollars with a 10 percent down payment. I ask you, how does anyone pay that? I think even with three full time jobs that is nigh to impossible unless you are making 15000 a month income!!! I have been itching to ask someone who is actually paying these high mortgages, how do you do it? I need to know what I will have to do in order to accomplish living back home again! And in case your thinking this house is ultra fancy think again, these homes are not modest but are not the elite homes you think of. These prices are just what the real estate market was driven to in the last two decades! Rest assured I will not be giving up on my dream of going home to live, it may just take a bit longer until I can figure out what needs to be accomplished in order for my goals to be brought to fruition.
