I've been working with a staffing agency and recruiter to land the right job/salary. Thanks for letting me know. Salaries are lower in Chicago as well (in Quality Management).

You could very well end up on the streets in six months, but hey, it's San Diego and the weather is great, so living in a van down by the river is not such a bad option.
I appreciate you taking the time to respond, but finishing with your last statement didn't help. I came on this forum genuinely seeking guidance...you didn't need to mock me.

His expectations and his situation just don’t match up. He sounds like a very caring father but some dreams should just stay as dreams. There are other places he could move that would be more affordable than SD. Maybe NC, SC. I mean, in 2 weeks they will be homeless. This is a very sad situation.
It's ok to tell me the plan isn't sound, I came here for guidance. Thank you. By the way, I'm a SHE not a HE, and I have 2 kids , not 3.

Your obstacles remain the same.

Problem is your goals are mutually exclusive. It would help if you prioritized them, put in a budget range, and then identified what kind of housing, schools, and walkability you would be willing to settle for. Unless you have millions, you are going to be making compromises. We need to understand which compromises you're most willing to make.
Appreciate your feedback, thank you.

Is your quality background in pharma? At a bare minimum, I suggest you immediately apply to every conceivable quality job in the San Diego area and your current area and see what type of response rate you get.
I'm in Pharma and working with a recruiter and staffing firm to secure a job before I come out. Thank you very much.

They lucked out with the townhome they ended up getting because the owner had it priced too high originally and since it was empty he dropped the price and they were able to qualify. They were fortunate that the landlord would let me daughter's friend have her parents cosign since she is self employed.

I'm not sure your budget is going to be enough for a 3 bedroom place. Daughter and her friends are paying $3,200 and one of the 3 bedrooms is an office with no closet although they do have a 2 car garage.
Thanks for the feedback!
