However there is commuter Amtrak train service between the two cities.

Sacramento-SFO is quite a trip.

Doesn't it (Amtrak) leave you off in Martinez, then bus you? I don't know of any Amtrak service that goes all the way to SFO. Even if there was, the commute would be very tough. Even if it were direct and the train did 60mph, you'd be spending over 3 hours a day on the train.

Anyway, as more and more silicon companies move to the Sacramento area, prices are going steadily up. You would be very hard pressed to find good digs in Sacto. for under $175K...at least in an area of Sacto. you'd want to live in. Then there's the fact that you can count on it being over 100 degrees for about four months of the year.

BTW, Concord is NOT a short commute.
