When we first thought about buying a house in California, our realtor happily declared that the county we were looking into has approximately 90% open space, hoping to entice us into buying something.  Apparently he forgot to mention that this county is also one of the most expensive counties in the entire country.  Nonetheless, he continued to share how great it was that our area has so much open space and preserved land.  “What’s ‘open space’ anyways?” I thought.  In Chicago, we didn’t have open space.  We had strip malls and fast food restaurants and Target — multiple Targets.  Here we have one.  When we moved to the Bay Area, I didn’t want open space.  I didn’t care about open space.  I just wanted to be able to buy a house that didn’t cost a small fortune.  After finally squeezing ourselves into the housing market, I now ironically love open space!  Of course, I do share that love with Target.
