Did anybody get in on this deal in 1975?

Now you can’t get one for under $1M.

Real 4 bedroom houses in Clayton on 1/3 of an acre that actually had back yards were selling for about $98,000 in Clayton at the time. Seeno “homes” have tiny yards—the worst of the planned neighborhood suburbia crap.

To be fair, we’ve had good luck with Seeno homes. Plus they had nice layouts.
Those homes in the ad were the exact duplicate of ones they were selling in Pittsburg, off Buchanan Road for $20k less.

Same homes, just more expensive real estate in Clayton.

We looked at The Crossings in 1975, but decided it was “a little too far out in the boondocks” and bought a house in Concord near Treat and Oak Grove. A year and a half later we discovered Clayton and got on a wait list in Regency Woods. By the time they got to us, nothing available was acceptable to us, but we found another house in Clayton that was under construction and bought it; we are still in it 44 years later and love it in Clayton.

You’d pay almost that much for a new car these days.

We toured the model homes.

Wow look at the affordable California homeowner experience that the boomers completely destroyed.

Boomers? lol

The real problem is lack of new housing and 40 years of wage stagnation.

Add to that feminism, that shamed women into leaving the home and family and going to work. That windfall of new discretionary income soon became required income and has been that way since. Now women have to work. Yet another gift to the world from the feminists.
