My husband will be working in Palo Alto. We are trying to find a SAFE community that isnt run down and has good public schools. We thought Discovery Bay was it until we found out the commute time could take up to 2 1/2 hours! Now we are backing away and looking at homes closer to work. However we are back where we started seeing homes that we like hitting the 800K range. We live in a 3 bed 2 1/2 bath almost 2000 sq foot now and we are busting out of it with the 3 kids. Help! Where can we live? Hubby's salary is 200K per year. Everyone says we can afford a ton but we dont want to strap ourselves. We have no debt and a nice savings. We want it to stay that way. We know Dublin is nice but expensive. Alameda seems a little better price wise, but is it safe and does it have good schools? I think we are about ready to turn down the job offer because we are so scared to move to CAlifornia and get into financial trouble.
