We love our neighborhood and our schools, my kids have only known this place, and we obviously have all of our closest friends here.&nbsp; BUT the cost of living is very high, and salary is stagnant. With a job offer in hand, we are considering moving to Irvine or nearby Orange County city. We are hesitant about selling our P.A. house, since over the past 7 years, it has proven to be our best investment. Yet leasing it and renting down south does not make sense financially, especially in the long run. <br/><br/>I would like to hear opinions about Palo Alto long-term house appreciation versus Irvine or other O.C. city with comparable (=top) schools.<br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 15 Jun 2010 04:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-I-sell-a-home-in-prime-Palo-Alto-location-and-buy-in-Irvine-or-other-Orange-County-city/353939/ 2010-06-15T04:09:00Z
