Obviously, you are clueless, aren't you? Don't you know that the initial offer is not set in stone and can change based on negotiations? The first post was based on the initial offer and the second one was after negotiation.

I think the OP deserves a straight answer. There's no need to be sarcastic. His situation is not unusual.

Default move?

there are plenty of quiet areas that will suit your expected lifestyle in pasadena. Pasadena has a mixture of homes, including lofts, condos and even multi million dollar homes. as for the move, that depends on your financial obligations at the time in question. i would suggest looking into possible areas of pasadena you may want to reside, figure out your budget and take it from there. cant beat california in the winter...or any other season!

Pasadena is a wonderful suburb, with an East Coast feel. We moved here 13 years ago from CT. I'm a realtor here. Rent a home first, and see if you like living here. [mod]edit[/mod]

what are you doing "in finance"? my experience is that brokers leave for the east coast, but given the enormity of the la economy im sure it entirely depends on what you're doing.

I would suggest that you rent, or rent-to-own your house in NJ until the market picks up. Pasasdena is gorgeous and your family should be very happy there. Living in the same city will save you a commute which, in L.A., is a good thing. Old Town is wonderful.

I agree that Pasadena has a lot to offer but if you are looking to buy.... Check out South Pasadena. It has a lot to offer. Small town feel, cute downtown area with a weekly farmer's market, shops, restaurants, community events, Mommy and me activities and several great parks. The plus is that you can be secure in the schools - you said that you all are expecting and Pasadena is NOT know for its schools. Most parents who can afford it send their kids to private school to the tune of about $20,000 a year. Other noteworthy public school districts are San Marino, La Canada, and Arcadia. Good luck, if you need a great OB, pediatrician, dentist, etc. direct email me. All three of our children were born at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena and I have lived in the area for 20 years. We are currently considering a job relocation out of state and those are my biggest concerns... starting over and rebuilding our support system.

Do yourself a favor and stay in NJ if you really want to advance in the finance industry (being next door to NY and all.)
