With the Golden State Warriors moving from Oracle Arena to the Chase Center in Mission Bay next season, the Curry family will most likely have to move out of their East Bay residence to make Stephen’s commute easier.
“That what I’m trying to figure out. Our family’s rooted in the East Bay,” Curry said on his YouTube show last week.
Unfortunately for them, they’re not loving the prices.
In an interview, Ayesha confirmed the family is looking for a place in San Francisco, and they’re dealing with a bit of sticker shock.
We’ll most likely have to relocate,” she said. “It’s going to be different for us but we love the Bay in its entirety. We’re just very happy to still be here.”
“We’re searching, we’re on the hunt,” Ayesha said. “I’ll tell you what though, San Francisco, we’ve had some sticker shock here.”
According to a Realtor.com report, national median list prices crossed the $300,000 mark for the first time in March. That is still only roughly a quarter of San Francisco’s median asking price of $1.35 million.
The same report states that home prices in San Francisco were actually down 3 percent from February to March.
The Curry family has lived in several spots in the East Bay since he was drafted in 2009. He had a pad in Orinda, before moving to a Mediterranean mansion in Walnut Creek. More recently, the family was living in a 5-bedroom, 8.5 bath home in Alamo.
“The commute on the bridge … I feel like I’m gonna have to pull a Kobe. Kobe to the Staples Center,” Steph said about a potential commute from the East Bay to the Chase Center.
Lucky for Steph and Ayesha, they have enough financial flexibility to buy whatever home they want.
Will they pay thru the nose, yes, but can they afford it, yes.
