Where are you moving too, and where do you work? LA is huge, so I wouldn't wnat to reccommend a city when you are completely on the other side of LA. The drive wouldbe atrocious.

That being said, you can get a lot of foreclosed houses here for cheap.

Yeah, I'm just outside of LA. Tarzana is actually not to bad. San Fernando Valley, Iam over in the San Gabriel Valley.


Basically you want to look at Burbank, San Fernando, Calabasas all good areas, depending on where.

Send me a PM with more details.

It's tough, but possible there are some people that live on less and with more people to boot.

Just be aware that you will not be able to upgrade as much as you want anymore...and you can make it work with public schools, which are good in the area you are looking. There will be no middle class breaks though, and you will see a huge disparity in what is being offered to poor and rich kids while excluding yours.

If you can tighten the belt between needs and wants, you should come out ahead. Of course that is pretty much the theory for anywhere....it's just the practice is so hard :)

not as yet, im looking, but i'm not moving until jan 1st and the landlords want me to pay rent immediately so i'll probably wait another month, before i get somewhere.

on a positive note, my wife was excepted to cal state and will only be doing classes at night, which means no childcare, which means an additonal $1400 a month in extra income... woohoo, i was so happy to hear that last night i almost passed out haha.

You're gonna have to come up with first and last and a security if you want to rent. Will send you a PM when I find some listings.

most places only want first and usually a small deposit, most i've seen is first and deposit equal to rent.

Lancer,

Have you considered changing companies?

I ask because Atlanta is an I.T. hot spot right now... I have been contacted by many head hunters there...

Just curious...

Mike A!

hold off, as things get harder to justify, the rent should go down some more.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
