Regular folk ain't gotta prayer to stay near San Jose/SF. SF Chronicle reports:
Squeezed by astronomical home prices and rents that are almost as unaffordable, a growing number of Bay Area residents are pulling up stakes and trading long commutes for cheaper housing.
This East Bay gem has plenty to offer excitement seekers of all hair lengths.
Mercury News has the latest stats for lux properties in SF/Silicon Valley, and it's getting mind boggling. $1M dollars don't get you much round these parts.

You might remember I posted this fantastical image on my Instagram (@hermanity) of the Docusign office in San Francisco earlier this month. I can now reveal Docusign invited me to their swank new San Francisco HQ to chat about how I use Docusign , especially with Google Drive. The feature just went live on their site! Check it out!
Seriously folks, if your Realtor doesn't offer Docusign to you, they are doing you wrong! It'll change your life. When they need your signature ASAP (which is like always!), no more scrambling around for a printer, finding a scanner, or god forbid using a fax! It's all electronic, paperless & mobile!
