Hello Ellie, are you looking to rent or buy? You should study RENT vs BUY listings to compare payments. These links may assist you with crime statistics:

These links should have the answers to any questions you may have on schools:

If you are in Sacramento now, just search for rentals in your price range then drive those neighborhoods to see if YOU feel safe there. No one here is going to be able to tell you where you are going to feel safe. ... more

Bill Thompson answered:
Legal advice is beyond the scope of my license, however, to the best of my knowledge a signed contract is required when it comes to Real Estate transactions: otherwise it just boils down t one individual's words against another. Your son might be able to get away with this as a result of not having an executed contract.(As your statement would suggest he is not a party to any existing contract as it relates to that property)
However, don't take my word for it ,you might need to seek legal council.
Good luck Ginger.

Sue Archer Reynolds answered:
Sorry, but we are not qualified to give legal advice. You have tenant rights, these are tempered as to whether you caused the problem or they just happened as part of the property condition.

In either case, California offers free legal advice. If you go down to the county courthouse there is a legal center that can help answer these questions for you. If the home is 'red tagged' as being uninhabitable, and not by your actions, you may be eligible for the property owner to pay for your housing somewhere else until the home is corrected. ....but all of that is dependent on lots of factors.

It's best to talk to an attorney. If you don't want to go down to the county courthouse, sign up for Legal Shield. Those are the two most affordable legal options that you have.

Antelope is about 12 miles northeast of Sacramento up Hiway 80. Just before you get to Roseville on the north and Citrus Heights on the east. Nice, middle of the road, suburban bedroom community with homes, schools, parks, shops. ... more

Aside from checking the Police or Sheriff websites and the Great Schools site I would also suggest they have info on cities plus discussion boards for communities.

For adults only. The best place is San Francisco! After that, maybe a casino or a night club that is holding a party. Or buy a couple hundred bucks worth of candy to hand out and make a party of it in your own home. I am hoping to celebrate by watching the Giants win the world series that night! ... more

I live in Stonelake, which is right off Hwy5 and elk grove blvd. From my bedroom which on the 2nd floor, some times I can faintly hear the train whistle. But it never disturb my sleep nor my wife's. I think, if you have a single story home, you probably won't hear it. ... more

Hard on landlords? Give me a break. It's the landlords that are hard on tenants in most cases. Personally? I think that the majority of landlords suffer from a Nepolean (Little Man's) Complex. They get all caught up in their power and position of authority. I've run across a few property managers that were so caught up in their self importance they scared me. They thought they were the second coming of the Nazi regime or something.

Tenants are not scum or the bottom of the barrel. In fact I know a few multi-millionaire renters. They just happen to love the freedom of renting and going any place in the world with total freedom with no residual commitments or responsibilities. Does that make them an inferior species? I don't think so.

The tax record does not show a year built, but looking at the loan history of the property, possibly the early 80's, but can't confirm 100%, sorry

Lisa Boatman answered:
I think you would be very happy in east sac as well. It is an older community and has many older homes with lots of character. You can walk to many great coffee shops, restaurants, parks and the farmers market is a short bike ride away. You wont be able to ride your bike to Roseville however you will be hard pressed to find the same things you are looking for in that community. The rest of downtown and old sac will offer you good schools and all you want with only a short drive to Roseville. I just moved in to east sac myself and love being able to walk and bike everywhere. You are more then likely going to have to choose between a short commute and being able to walk/ ride places you want to go. I hope this helps! Have a good day! ... more

Sacramento is a great place to live. I live & work in Land Park and I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. It's an amazing community where you'll find support and there is always something going on. There are definitely other surrounding neighborhoods that have their own charm and draws. The weather is brilliant when you think about it. It does get hot but not for too long. When it rains, it's all at once then we're back to sunny clear skies and beautiful weather. If you want snow, Tahoe is a short drive. You miss the city, it a short drive. There is a reason people are attracted to Sacramento. If I can help you Norma, please give me a call!

It really depends upon the time of day you'd be traveling - Hwy 99 connects to the downtown area from Wilton and is highly congested during moring and afternoon commuting, but is decent the rest of the time. The roads from Wilton and the freeway are country roads so that can be an issue if you're running late, also there's significant fog in the Winter which makes commuting problematic at times, especially on the country roads. ... more
