Thanks to Burbed reader madhaus for this guest post!
burbed reader SEA listed a few uses of “real” recently: Real Bay Area, Real Houses, Real Resident, Real drop in price, Real Buyer, and Real Home. Goes on to wonder if there is a “real seller” and if so, what would that be? And reader nomadic responded: “Real Sellers never drop their price. They wait patiently for ‘just the right buyer.’ After all, it only takes one!”
There’s plenty of uses for “Real” in this Real Special place we live. All those hillside homes, we can find out the lot square footage, but what’s the Real Square Footage — the land you can actually use instead of slide to the bottom of your property line? And how does the word “Real” makes almost anything better?
Real (adj.): Smaller, more exclusive, superior. Way more Special.
So, watch the RBA get more concentrated and more special as time marches on. Here’s burbed’s original Real Bay Area map:
Good, but needs a bit more detail. So I came up with this a couple of years ago:
Well, it’s time to update the map, boys and girls! Let’s see how things are looking in April, 2010!
Looks like the RBA has traded down! Former RBA could soon be part of the Corridor of Not Quite! And “Real” continues to be defined as getting smaller but better all the time!
