Moving to Chico California

Asked by Priya Dahanukar, Thu Dec 15, 2011

Hello I am a single professional moving to Chico End January. I am going to be renting a place and was wondering which are the safer places to rent an apt in Chico which are quiet and away from the university . I was looking at 3 options esplanade close to nord ave,
1661 forest ave or 100 sterling oaks near hwy 32 and Bruce road . Any advice about safety would be highly appreciated,

It has almost 25 years since I lived in Chico, so I really do not have current information: but, I know who does:

Here's the most recent report (according to the website, but I would check by calling).…

You can also check the Megan's Law Database:

In addition to an Apartment, you might also consider renting a detached home in order to expand your options:

Depending on your long-term plans and as Ginny suggests, running the numbers on a purchase may not be a bad idea either.

both would be good, go for whatever you like best. Rates and homes are so good right now, you should be thinking about buying if you can.
contact me if so,

Hi Priya,
Nord is a busy area and lots of student activity. Sterling oaks, Cal Park and Forest Ave are all nice places.
If you need assistance in home buying and loans I can help you there too. I can send you emails of houses in the price range and criteria you are looking for in a house so you can see what you can get in that price range. I am also licensed to do lending. Chico has grown in the past 25 years but has pretty much the same dynamics as before. I'm born and raised right here. So if there is anything else I can help you with please call 530-321-5526. I see your timing is getting pretty close now.
