We are (were) looking at homes in Land Park and found one we really liked (short-sale on 7th avenue). Ultimately, it did not work out. We developed a real trust issue with the seller/agent and in the end would not accept the terms. We loved the house, but now think it's time to move on. Other than the above, we have decided to look in other places because LP is really not all that affordable for us and the likelihood we could find a suitable place is small.
I have looked in South Land Park and found very few homes we liked. (Yes, we may be the worst type of buyer ;) We (my wife and I) like older homes (pre-1980's) in neighborhoods with trees and try to stay away from tract housing, if we can.
In any event, we have not ruled out LP, Curtis Park or even South Land Park, but we just feel the chances are slim. So, the reason for the question about Natomas is that I have driven through neighborhoods that were nice and wanted to consider it as an option.
Thank you again for your comments. I really appreciate your input.

What type of house are you looking for (other than what you mentioned above)? Natomas is an interesting complete 360 from Land Park...just out of curiosity, why have you eliminated LP/CP? Have you thought of other areas nearby (like perhaps South Land Park)? Did the permit issue you mentioned in your past question sour you on older homes?
You do have some options in Natomas...not necessarily in gated communities, but there are some homes on larger lots out there. Natomas can be pretty densly packed in though...There is a community called Northpointe Park Village where lot sizes tend to be larger (near Natomas Community Park). I can email you examples if you like.
