Don’t move to Sunnyvale boring as hell

You should move to palo alto or sf. Mountain view and sunyvale are boring and only old people.

It’s an expensive place to live - great shopping, low crime, generally upper class demographic plus younger rich tech crowd and Stanford students. It’s pretty great

Start the process maybe a month before moving date, actively visit/look ~2 weeks before moving date. If you’re moving from a distance it’s honestly fine to live in a hotel or airbnb for a week or two and go through the process then.

Seconding C1 and A1, definitely check out places AND neighborhoods physically, at various times of the day (morning to see commute traffic, evening to see noise level and safety)

Depends on the type of building. If it’s a large new apt, they’ll have listings available now that you can lease further out in advance.

~2 weeks. I looked a month ahead and it was a little soon; most of the units I viewed would be taken up by before my desired move-in date

I live in Sunnyvale and yes it’s boring but it’s a good quiet place to live. It also depends on which neighborhood you are looking.

I live over in the Morse Park area which is closer to the 237 side and it’s quiet, safe and lots of families and not a lot of traffic.

My wife and I are opposite in terms of what we like, I enjoy outdoors activities, whereas she enjoys shopping 😅. We’re hoping to find a place that has both and I don’t mind driving a bit for work.
