I just couldn't imagine having to spend twice that to get something similar on the west side, THEN dealing with the daily rain, commute times, population density and everything else that comes with it.
I can't imagine having to live in the middle of nowhere to get a decent house price. I'm moving to Miami, where homes are half the price of Seattle and almost everything else is better, plus it's a major metropolitan area.
You couldn't imagine when you lived in Seattle for how many years? C'mon man.
We're perfectly happy where we are. 300+ days of sunshine, full 4 seasons, an hour away from a great ski hill, 15 minutes from a world-class Lake/tourist destination, amazing hiking and infrastructure for cycling, boating, kayaking/paddleboarding, extremely cheap costs of living, and I could go on.
You couldn't pay me to live in a metro area. Not Seattle, not Portland, Chicago, Phoenix, Miami, LA. Not interested.
