We moved here from Seattle a year ago after we both got job offers to help set up fitness studios and coach employees. We were then offered extensions and good job offers, so we started looking at property to buy as the rental market was terrible. Older apartements were larger but really looked their age and had been poorly maintained. Newer apartments were very small and very cheaply/poorly constructed,(my husband used to be in construction). We thought about buying and got approved for a $900k mortgage. We looked around between San Mateo and Mountain view. Again we were shocked at the age and condition of a lot of homes that were on the market. The newer townhomes were even worse. We looked at San mateo where there were two new construction projects, one being Bay meadow. they were cramped, no views, thin walls and very small and an unbelievable price. We spent 7 - 8 months looking and went to numerous open homes but kept leaving disapointed. Sad to leave new friends here
