Renting in Willow Glen, 95125

If you want to live in one of the most expensive area (95125) in one of the costliest cities in US, you should be prepared to pay up.

A local Lincoln High School Student shares her family's struggles renting in San Jose, reflecting the larger picture of what families pay not only in money, but in valuable time missed with family to afford to call San Jose home.

Living in a certain places is not a right. If this family wanted to they could easily move to a cheaper area and live more comfortably. But they made the decision not to, and then they complain about their choices. The American dream is home ownership. Paying $1700 a month for a small two bedroom apartment that both parents have to work two jobs each just to make rent is not the American dream. Want to live here? Keep working like crazy or get a better job. Want to work less and have more family time? Move to a more affordable city.
