The work cannot be remote.

That's unfortunate.

You can look at this situation a few ways. Is this a 'stepping stone' position? Will you use this job to simply up your career and move onto something else?

Is this a big career move for you? Do you see yourself rising through the ranks at this company? If so, it might be worth it to suffer a little in the beginning while you and your family adjust to a new city/area while you establish yourself.

If it's simply 'just another job' then maybe it might be better to look elsewhere before your contract starts so that you and your family don't have to endure unnecessary struggles and stress.

Just my two cents.
