Does your husband work near hwy 50 and 16th St or hwy 16? I would suggest West Sacramento if you want to be west of Sacramento because it's still close to downtown. Traffic over the causeway in between W Sac and Davis is often congested with traffic during rush hour. There are many great neighborhoods throughout Sacramento as well. I'm helping a couple relocate from NY right now so if you have any questions about Sacramento feel free to ask.... more
Hello Baltie5, You will discover so many wonderful places and things to do once you arrive in Sacramento. This is the ideal area to live with so many amenities from the great outdoors, wine tasting, to the arts, and a variety of places to eat. I have to agree with the idea of renting before buying, get out and explore Sacramento and the different town's surrounding Sacramento. If living close to work is a priority then find your ideal job then entrust in a Realtor to help you find the right neighborhood. I wish you the best and I hope you enjoy discovering your new home!... more
I lived in Dallas for years and years--JJ Pearce High and then U of Houston. Citrus Heights is Suburban, lots of shopping conveniences, parks, some areas with large lots and the occasional horse.
We are basically $1 per sq foot for rentals, so a 1000 sq ft. home would run about , $1000.
You can check Craigslist, or there is a variety of Property Management companies--HomePointe, SacDelta Property (? that may not be the exact name), M&M--to name a few. And the apartments are available on the various forrent.com type sites.
The schools there have a good reputation--San Juan Unified School District. In my opinion 95610 is a little nicer area, but will cost more. There are some nice neighborhoods in the other C.H. zip--95621, but just drive around to see how YOU feel about it.
