Is extra 4.1 years worth a move?
I have lived in the same house in La Crescenta for 47 years, and I've never seriously considered moving. But, based on the article ("La Cañada residents are living long lives," July 29) about the extraordinary longevity of La Cañada Flintridge residents, I must reconsider.
Since LCF residents live an average of 4.1 years longer than those of us in my town, I must pay attention. At my age, 4.1 years would mean that I would live approximately 50 % longer. That statistic is not to be ignored, but I figure that the price differential of similar homes in the two areas would amount to about $125,000 per year. Now THAT is a serious dilemma.
