Mailbag: I Got Mine But What About My Kids?

Easymark: My concern as well is that with the cost of houses rising my kids can’t afford a house in their home town. I’m sure houses are cheap here compared to California. That does not mean I want to pay California prices. Ultimately we are going to become the playground for the rich. It is sad to see our area being loved to death. “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.”

DFO: Given the medical/research career my son’s pursuing, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he can eventually settle down in Portland or Seattle. There are no medical schools closer. As for Sis, I dunno if she’ll be able to afford to come back here, if she wants to. No question our kids are being priced out of this place. Are any of you planning to help your kids stay or relocate here after college or a period of seeing the world?
