Moving from modest real estate market for Menlo Park
Curious how anyone has accomplished moving from an out of state, low cost real estate market to a place like Menlo Park. It seems like the only houses available under an hour drive from MP are $1M minimum unless you want to live in a trailer park. It's next to impossible to afford something like that coming from a home with far less equity value. How does anyone make that work while supporting a family? Is there "affordable" housing with a reasonable commute or is this the nature of the beast?
