I’ll be joining VMware Palo Alto and looking for areas to buy house with decent elementary school. With budget of 1M, Palo Alto is out of the consideration. What other areas are considerable with reasonable commute (<=30min).

    I doubt if even 2b/2b condo is possible with those constraints.

      Your warning is that VMware is toxic.

      Yes there is a shuttle from San Jose and a shuttle from San Francisco. Highly recommend - it's equipped with WiFi and the front seats have "tables" so you can pretty much work through the whole commute

      It’s not bad if you leave for work early

    search for condos in the Peninsula - San Mateo county. If you can get to Palo Alto via 280 then 30-40 mins commute via car is achievable. Avoid commute via 101. You’ll have a stronger case if you can bump up your budget by another 200K.

    Does not exist. You need a lot more money or just rent.

    Actually you will get a great home for $ 1 Million in Morgan Hill . You could always catch the Caltrain 😀

      Actually Morgan Hill is turning more white collar whereas Gilroy is still primarily blue collar

    30 minutes commute is 5 miles radius? Search what fits your budget. Even the cheapest area Santa Clara is out of range in terms of commute.

    2 bed 1 bath combo near by. Definitely good school district.

    Sunnyvale condo can do. But depends on what you think is a good elementary?
