Fiance and I are in SouthBay, but when we first moved up here from SoCal we were looking at places in SF. Everything was around the same price, and it all seemed SO expensive! We ended up down here b/c it was closer for his work (and eventually mine b/c I got a new job), and just cheaper living in general.
Plus, we had the hardest time finding a space that fit our square footage requirement, had two parking spaces w/o us paying up the wazoo for it, and allowed us to have our two chihuahuas.

@Ill Be Mrs B: omg FOUR stories?! I used to work at DSW years ago, and worked at that 3 story location, it was crazy! Are they adding a floor to the current store, or where is the new one going to be? OMG I’m so excited hahaha!!

Miss Godiva The SF DSW is taking over the Barnes and Noble building in March which is 4 stories. I know we walked by the empty BaN so it must be in Union Square. When I walked in the 3 story DSW, I was in heaven!!!!! So many shoes, so little time.
I hope you get to go and if you do PM me and tell me allllll about it.

What is your budget if you don’t mind me asking? We live in downtown San Mateo, we own a house though, and love the Peninsula. My fiancé works near AT&T Park, and walks to Caltrainfrom our house, then walks from the train station to work. Millbrae, Burlingame, San Mateo, and Redwood City all have great downtowns, and access to Caltrain. Millbrae has a Bart station and Caltrain meets Bart there if you need to switch. Pm me if you have any questions.

@Reebles: It is hard for us to figure out an exact budget since prices are SOOO different there than here and we don’t have a salary offer from Zynga yet. We wont have that for another 3 weeks. Ugh… In reality, we are looking for the best price for the best square footage in addition to location to public transportation to avoid having to drive to work.

@Ill Be Mrs B: I completely forgot about the B&N, that makes total sense!! I’ll have to check it out when it opens, and I’ll def let you know what it’s like 😀

Wow that is quite a bit more than I pay in Sonoma County I am pretty shocked actually. I pay $1,250 for a three bedroom 1100 SF townhouse.
Obviously I don’t know all your restrictions and requirements so I can’t weigh the pros and cons but have you looked towards Sonoma? It is a whole lot prettier than Dublin at the very least and our weather is perfection. 😉
