The 2nd one is actually much more accommodating than it seems. It's more like a 4 br. + family room. They could work with that. It looks like a nice property, and has a playhouse in the backyard. They'd be lucky to score something like that. But yeah, they're never going to get a conventional 5 br. home in the Bay Area.

That's why I mentioned the working time. If her husband can star his working late like 10AM. Why not? He is scientist so he doesn't have to be there 8:00am to start the production shift.

I’m sure you consider yourself open minded as well, right?
It is not about myself. I just a simple tech guy who lives and works in the area and who has been here for a while to call himself local.

When a person said they are "right wing reactionary European citizens" (citation) it means what it means. It is not my business what people's views are until it is harmful for other people. A person LadyKatie3 is obviously not harmful to anyone but courteously asking for advice about the area. So my advice as I already said, is better consider other American city to relocate, if possible. I want every person to be happy. Output is that white right wing reactionary European citizens have a huge chance to be unhappy in the area full of immigrants, brownish-yellow color people, gay people, equal opportunities for both men and women, recreational marijuana, and other stuff they do not like but I as a local like. They even do not want to move here but forced because of job so chances to be unhappy became greater.

I believe after reading this, I’m not only confused, but also became dumb as a result

Maybe just keep living in the 50s if you don't believe in gender equality.

this is why tracy cost that much (along with every other crap small city 1hr to 1hr and half WITHOUT TRAFFIC of the bay) while tracy as a city really isnt much but has become a bedroom community for people working in the bay area. I remember when tracy homes brand new were in the 100s and 200s for 2000-3000 sq ft homes new.

of course the reality is during the work week expect 2 to 3 hours drive each way.

Not everyone is super open minded and weird like California residents.

I don't see how 4 kids are that much more money than 2. We hope to have a 5th very soon
No plans to help them through college? We are paying for our kids education at the moment and it is a big financial burden, definitely adds up per kid. You have to be saving when they are young and that would be a hefty amount with five!

With OP's condition, Tracy is a good option. Big family with 1 income. Remember he is scientist, not an assembler, so he can start to work late; thus avoiding traffic. Where the OP can get a big house with 5-6 bed rooms for 600K in the bay area?
My lab assistants commute everyday from Tracy, Stockton. Of course, they work at 5AM or graveyard. So no traffic at all.
