I used to live in the Bay Area for a very, very long time until I cannot afford living there anymore. I would suggest that you pick up the phone and work with a local realtor to assist you with your rent, I don't know what you can get for $2k per month. I used to live in a one bedroom apartment in SF and when I moved out, the apartment was leasing at $1900 a month. That was a long time ago. It is in a nice, safe neighborhood, though. You can also look into a smaller apartment (a building with about 3-4 units) for lease owned by individual landlords. Sometimes they post their rental at colleges/universities and likely cheaper than the big unit apartments. However, in my experience, quite a few of these landlords do not follow rent control rule and may not do the repairs that you requested.

Traffic is always a challenge in SF and often people commute for long hours to and back from work. Depending upon where you work and live, you may want to take the bus/muni or bart to work.

Good luck on your move!

Kathy Burgreen answered:
It depends if you are getting a mortgage loan or paying cash. If getting financing, lenders will NOT give you a loan unless you have a job in your new location.

If your new job is salaried and issues a W2, lenders just need an employment contract to pre approve you and 1 month of paystubs by the time you close. If you are issued a 1099 which is for independent contractors, self employed, then you need 2 years employment + tax returns. ... more

Continued but a shorter reply.

Getting to Work - Public transportation is excellent. There are commuter trains from all 3 states that go well into the far outlying towns. Beware, the further out you are, the longer it takes to get to work + the more expensive it is. Ideally you want to be within a 45 - 1 hour commute. Do NOT drive to work unless you only need to be in NYC 3 days/week or less. Reason? Daily traffic reports talk of accidents & rush hour delays of up to 1 hour no matter what highway it is. Much less stress sitting on a train, using a laptop or reading and walking a short distance to your job.

Finally - the best neighborhoods:

Connecticut - anyplace in Fairfield County. It's expensive so if you need a cheaper town - Stamford.
New Jersey - anyplace in northern NJ (Bergen, Passaic Counties). Going south - Essex, Hudson, Middlesex Counties). Avoid Newark, The Oranges, Hoboken, Bayonne, Union City, etc.
New York - most places in Westchester and Nassau Counties. In Westchester County avoid Yonkers, Port Chester, Mount Vernon and New Rochelle. In Nassau County avoid Hempstead, Rockville Centre, Freeport, etc.
