Everyone Is Leaving San Francisco!

SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) – The number of people packing up and moving out of the Bay Area just hit its highest level in more than a decade.
Carole Dabak spent 40 years living in San Jose and now she’s part of the mass exodus that is showing no signs of slowing down.
The retired engineer’s packing up and calling it quits about to move to the state of Tennessee.
“I loved it here when I first got here. I really loved it here. But it’s just not the same,” Dabak said.
Of course people come and go from the Bay Area all the time, but for the first time in a long time, more people are leaving the Bay Area than are coming in. And the number one place in the country for out-migration is now, right here.

“You can’t even contemplate getting into the housing market here,” Hancock said. “And I don’t mean just service workers, I mean highly skilled professionals. The tech elite are having a hard time affording reasonable housing in Silicon Valley. So this is difficult, this makes it very difficult for employers trying to recruit.”
Operators of a San Jose U-Haul business say one of their biggest problems is getting its rental moving vans back because so many are on a one-way ticket out of town.

  1. People who stay on and on and on are in deep denial about the incessant problems of the city, state and their sanctuary cities policy. It’s getting to be literally a sheethole in SF and only getting worse due to the homeless and illegal aliens…..
    LEAVE NOW while you can before Brown makes it illegal to leave (I am sure he’s fomenting laws against leaving shortly)….or fomenting an “exit” tax that will be quite hefty for you to pay.

  2. Not necessarily related to people waking up to the problems — the fact is, over the last few decades so many people have moved there that there’s just not a lot of space anymore.
    There’s no space between the various cities – it’s impossible to tell (without looking at a road sign saying so) where Palo Alto ends and Mountain View starts, and the same goes for all the other cities there. Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View, San Jose, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, San Jose, … have all grown into one big blob.
    When there’s no more houses to move in to and even well-paid people live in mobile homes because there’s no other housing available, obviously at some point more people will move out than move in.
