You already sound like people who live in the Bay Area lol.

But then there's this:

I think $1.3 million is more realistic low point if your commuting from a better East Bay town to either the city or silicon valley. At least 1 hr each way.

$2 million is a more realistic low point for a starter home in a decent school district closer(meaning dont have to cross a bridge) to Peninsula job centers from SF to SJ.

I know it sounds ridiculous.

You didn't mention hating summer heat, so I'll suggest San Antonio. Plenty of hospitals. Plenty of IT, especially in IT Security.

No state tax, but hefty property taxes. Make sure you pay attention to the annual property tax number when you buy a house in Texas.

I looked up online and few sites came up but they shows all kinds of info that wasn't helpful or relevant. Anyone has experience using such tools (including CD forums), please let me know. Thanks!
Most major cities' Wikipedia pages will have basic information on that page for monthly highs/lows, sunshine hours, etc. You may also want to go to a more serious weather site like wunderground for more detailed information.

I'm originally from Raleigh,NC and to further recommend that pound for pound the Raleigh-Durham area of NC is going to have ALL of your wants. I currently live in Dallas, TX which was the largest metropolitan area that had the most similarities to Raleigh. I could also say Austin but the Healthcare component is a bit lacking and it's pricier overall. Check out the suburbs of Plano, Frisco, Irving, and Allen. very diverse area and other than the 100 degree days in July and August you will be fine.

Thank you for your reply! Dallas sounds promising for sure and have been getting good feedback online from others. Was Houston ever in the running for you? I know Houston and Dallas seem to be in an eternal battle over which is better but curious to know if you went though any of that comparison when moving to Dallas?
