All,

I know this might sound like being posted again, but I did search out the message boards and also searched out apartments.com based on suggestions from this board but still do not have my questions answered. I just got an offer from a firm at Pasadena for around $120K. I need to move from NJ. I currently live in a 3 bed, 2.5 bath townhome and my wife and I are expecting our first kid. I would like to find out a place to live which is not very far from Pasadena, will not be a long commute and is not very expensive. I am preferably looking for a townhome or a 3bedroom. A 2 bed is fine if it is big but the rates are exhoribitant $2500 and above. My range is $1500 - $2400. Can someone suggest a few good places with decent rents and decent commute? I know there is a gold line that runs. Are there any good places to live along the line which has a decent rent and a decent commute? Thanks so much for your help.

Regards

I suggest you focus on areas like Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena (north), Sierra Madre, La Canada, Flintridge, etc. You should find some decent rental options, but you are looking at $2000 plus for a nicer unit.

Pasadena, San Marino, Glendale, and Burbank. South Pasadena and San Marino are the best.

Have you looked at renting a home? A friend of mine rents a place in Valley Village, which is west of Pasadena, for $2,000 a month. Try westsiderentals.com. They have all kinds of listings.

Pasedena is nice. Why not stay there and not have to deal with commuting.
