Hi All

I would like to get some feedback on whether to buy home in Mountain house CA. I am currently renting and working in Sunnyvale. My budget is around 650k which I don't think I can get anything decent in East Bay.

I am looking for feedback on

1. Commute
2. Neighborhood
3. Schools
4. Quality of life there

And anything which you think that I should consider 😊

  • I thought you were talking about Mountain view until I saw the 650K

  • That’s a life sucking commute. Buy something for 800k that needs work and has a detached garage that you can rent out.

    It would be a 3+ hour daily commute FYI

      I used to commute from Tracy to Hayward and that took 1.5 hours each way. Add another 30-45 mins to get to Sunnyvale. You’ll spend 1/6 of your life in your car. In traffic...

      One of those places you move to so you can have a huge house and be far from anything interesting. It's like East of Dublin/Pleasanton/Livermore.

    If you are seriously considering it, rent for a year before buying. You will know within a year if the commute is for you or not. Unlikely prices will go up in a year anyway.

    Good quality of life and schools are great for kids. Quiet and relaxing environment when you can wfh.

    It’s a good option if you can work from home for at least 2-3 days / week and your spouse is not working (assuming you have kids).
