Budget 1.4 million , no kids
What is better - townhome or condo in a good schooling district of Sunnyvale priced at 1.4 million Or a single family home at the same price with good schools of Warm Springs, Fremont.
Commute: It will be same from warm springs and Sunnyvale to present companies

    Sfh is better than th because if recession hits, it price will drop less than a th’s. It will also appreciate more And in case of earthquake, you still own a massive lot.

    Single-family-home! Don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

      Future proofing. Appreciation. No HOA to deal with (usually).

      Because this is irrelevant. We don't stay in same company for too long

      Sunnyvale has to be a lot closer for most options

    SFH but don’t limit yourself to just one specific location. Take a look at Santa Clara 95051 too.

    If you want better investment, sfh is better. If you want better living quality, the townhouse is probably better. I have a sfh now, appreciated quite a bit, must most sfh is pretty old, and maintainence is a pain.

      Sfh appreciation is definitely nice, but realistically any of the tech jobs will more than cover any loss of appreciation imo

    Sunnyvale, closer to tech jobs. Warm springs is for parents only. Sunnyvale still has great schools.
