Hi all!
I'm relocating to San Jose in the fall. Looking for a townhouse/condo with 3 bedrooms, preferably 3.5k/month or less.
I don't know anything about the bay area as I'm moving from the East coast. Looking for something close to work, easy access to parks (I have a toddler) and a safe area to walk around.
Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Where is work? If in downtown San Jose, I would consider looking in Sunnyvale, Campbell, willow Glen, Almaden, Milpitas. I would avoid living on or near Superfund sites but that's just me.

If you want "safe to walk around" vibe and kid friendly, I would consider living out in the peninsula from Millbrae down to San Carlos. The more affordable cities are Millbrae and San Mateo whereas the cities with better schools are Burlingame, Belmont, San Carlos. you can still conveniently use Caltrain to commute to the city. Not a fan of the city itself at least in current times.

If you're concerned about schools, I've heard the best school districts run along Cupertino, Saratoga, Los Gatos but it may be out of your budget. Good schools that are further away but in your budget - you could consider Fremont, trivalley area (San Ramon, Danville, Pleasanton )

Nationwide the real estate market is slowing down and cooling off. For my Miami peeps, do you think that’ll reach down here?
