Hello all.. I may have a job opportunity in San Jose and was wondering how is the quality of living around there. Right now i live in NYC and i know San Jose is cheaper but also expensive when compared to the rest of the country. here are my questions. 1) What is a going local 1 bedroom apartment rate in a good area? 2) Ideally i would love a small single family house with a garage where i can park 1 car in the garage and my dd in the driveway. I will be moving (if i do) on my own, so really 1-2 bedroom house will be plenty. Appreciate suggestions for areas, small towns or neighborhoods to research.
