What are the top 3 to 5 places to live within 20 miles from Santa Clara, CA

Range - 1000 to 1500 dollars in monthly rent
2 to 3 bedroom town home or condo or single family home

Must have: Good, safe neighborhood
Good to have: School district

What are some of the sources I should use or connect with - websites, agents etc

you are NOT going to find anything that meets your basic requirements.

rents in that area in decent neighborhoods run $2000/mo and up, unless you get lucky.

here's a link to Craigslist, south bay area, to get some ideas

I would have to say the best areas near Santa Clara are Milpitas, Los Altos, Saratoga and Los Gatos.

you should find a rental agent/reactor as soon as possible, unless you find something on Craigslist.

if you don't mind a little bit more thanXXXXX I would strongly suggest Morgan Hill. you could get a nice 2 br /gar and pool apartment for under $1500 6 years ago (when I left).

let me know if that helps.
