Current commute: 1h 15m
Some houses in the South Bay look so cool, but then you go inside and it hasn’t been updated since ‘91. I’ve typically seen this in rental markets near universities, where landlords don’t really need to update to be competitive. I know it could seem petty, and I’m definitely aware of the cost of living in the Bay Area, but I’m hoping to find the best VALUE.
Being that I’m an avid surfer, and would love to be close enough to the water to surf regularly, I’m hoping to find something in Santa Cruz.
I love driving, I wake up early, don’t mind traffic and have always had an hour++ commute. I will be moving with my Wife and 2yo. Any advice? Is Santa Cruz -> Menlo Park/ Palo Alto doable?
Thank in advance!
If no bus I'd either move to the valley or work for Amazon's Santa Cruz office
