I’m going to try to paste some of the info about the rentals I’ve been looking at so you can see what you get for your big bucks in rent in Silicon Valley, California.
This one just came on the market this morning. It has a great layout, is pet friendly, and a great location. Glenn could walk/bike to work! The downsides are carpet, tile counters in the kitchen, and the price: $4500 per month, PLUS pet deposit. I just read an article in their local paper about the percentage of local residents that are spending MORE than the recommended 34% of their income on rent/mortgage payments. With these prices, you can see how that would happen!
