Although in San Jose, "Buy a 5 BR/3BA home in a more rural area that is a bit farther away from work;" could mean anything from 15 to 75 extra minutes a day in the car (each way), as I'm sure you're aware.

Our radius is anything within 45 minute drive to/from Cupertino. Since the 101 corridor was widened in between South San Jose and Morgan Hill, our chances may be better at finding something down there.

Frankly, my family is all in the North Bay and I would prefer to move North, but I don't know if there's anywhere we can go in that direction that would really be in the right price range.
