For over thirty years I was a long haul trucker, and I passed through every major city in the continental United States.
Had I taken an office job, or worked at a store, I never would have been able to travel and see so many wonderful sights. I am happy that I chose my trucking career, but now I’m just as happy to retire. I decided to settle down and spend my golden years in the prettiest city of them all – San Francisco, California. The cityscape is iconic, the music eternal, and the people relaxed and carefree. Out of every place I ever visited, San Francisco was my favorite of them all. I joined a group of other potential San Francisco home buyers, and we pooled our money to buy a piece of property instead of a house. San Francisco real estate is at an all-time high these days, so to get the most for our money we all needed to think big. What helped accelerate the process was that we were all cash homebuyers, meaning that we could buy a property outright and not finance it through a bank. Cash homebuyers can close on houses quickly, skip over a lot of the excess paperwork, and in general are a dream for real estate agents. Some San Francisco real estate brokerages will even give a discount to cash homebuyers, because it saves them so much time and effort. With my group of San Francisco real estate investors, I was able to find an amazing beachside property and still come in under budget.
