Problem with expensive places like Cupertino and Los Gatos and Palo Alto for me is that traffic is HELL to get to Santa Clara in the work day commute. It is a parking lot. That is why I will never buy in Los Gatos, the 85 is a nightmare traffic jam daily.
Well I've been at my job in the valley for 3 years and it is not secure anymore. Just got bad news so time for sending out resumes and looking for new job. Maybe I can even get a sales job and move outside of the overpriced bay area.
