Asked by Joon, 95132 • Sat Aug 25, 2007
I'm looking for homes in North San Jose, and I'm trying to figure out if I should look for a short term home (five to seven years) or a long term home (twelve to fifteen years). Short term would mean I find a place for convenience (close to shops and freeways) then move to an area with good schools when the kids hit elementary age. Long term means I would sacrifice a bit of convenience to settle in an area with better schools (like Berryessa). With the housing market being what it is today, I've found it difficult to decide which direction to go. I feel the long term strategy to be "safer" in case I can't afford a new place in seven years, but I'm not sure if that concern is warranted. Any thoughts?
