Common problem faced by new Microsoft hires

Reading this (touching) post by Peter Provost who recently moved with his family (including a newborn) from Denver to Seattle for a hot job at Microsoft, struck a chord. I remember having a  conversation with another person and his wife who recently moved from Florida (where he was already a Microsoft employee) to Seattle. They have young children. They were having a difficult time figuring out where to live (that was affordable as well as commutable) where his wife and children would be able to re-create their social world that they had to leave behind (along with family) when they moved. These are obviously huge and difficult choices to make. Quite different than when you are young and single and without a lot of ties.
