Have you been pre-approved for a purchase loan?
By the way, as an investment, if you hold onto the home, you will do well in any of the three cities you mentioned.
Best of luck.
I can certainly help you...all three areas are a good investment but it really depends on the specific property

Investment wise, San Mateo is the better choice as it is close enough for the attractions that the City provides yet far enough to live a family life. Home prices remain strong and the schools are award winning. Other questions you may ask yourself are: Will this be less than 5 year purchase, will this be a "move-in" ready home, will your commute change, will you want a single family home versus a condo, and, the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage that fits not only today buy as children grow.
