Hi Joel!
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.

GOOD LUCK! Welcome to town.

Kylee

All over Sacramento, we're seeing revitalization projects. From foreclosed projects being bought up by new developers to mom and pop flippers buying entry level fixer uppers to bring to market as a turn key, FHA ready home. In the central neighborhoods, dilapidated homes are being torn down to build new or stripped and added on to. The outskirts are seeing new construction roaring back due to the decreased supply of resale inventory. ... more

Good day,

You are looking for a part of Sacramento called “Midtown”. Many folks who live in Midtown do not have cars due to the fact they can walk everywhere to everything, shopping, entertainment, dining and night life.
You want to look for an area called the “grid”. Midtown is a fairly large area and the closer you get to the “grid” the closer you are to everything. Rents may be a touch higher nearer the ‘grid’ as appose to 10-12 blocks away.
All the best and welcome to Sacramento!

Interest rates are not tied to credit as much as they were a few years ago, when they had the myriad of packages like prime, subprime, stated income loans and all flavors in between.

It would be hard not to get a good interest rate with a score over 640, but the best person to talk to would be Chris Stahl at Summit Funding. he can be reached at 768-8000. He can give you more specifics.

No matter what interest rates are lower than they were 2 years ago so you're in a better position. Good luck!

I would recommend that you start by researching the areas closest to your job. You should contact an agent to assist you with your search. Be sure to get pre-qualified first so you know your price range. ... more

Midtown offers a better mix of residential with nightlife, amenities , restaurants, shopping, parking, etc. Compared to Downtown has more business/office, although it is transitioning to offer as much as midtown. Downtown also has more "rough" pocket areas compared to midtown is more consistently "good" location. My office is in Midtown and i love the area. ... more

There are plenty of great walkable neighborhoods in the area.... A favorite website of mine for just this subject is
http://www.walkscore.com... If that fails I would be more than happy to help you find an agent who lives and breaths neighborhoods...

Micah Baginski answered:
If the company you are prequalified with does 203K loans then you should be golden. Remember though that the process is a little more daunting than a conventional loan. You need to have a contractor who has been in business for longer than two years, who is insured and bonded. They need to get qualified by the lender as do your bids from the contractor. The appraiser will do an advanced appraisal to evaluate the work to be completed and value the home as if it were complete. Once the home has been purchased you have a time frame, usually 90 days to complete the work, then another appraisal and the loan converts to permanent financing. ... more

Yes, it is a good area. It is close to downtown, the freeways and the Sacramento State University Campus. Let me know if you want more specific information.

Sue Archer Reynolds answered:
I would say that it would be older neighborhoods, like those in Orangevale, Carmichael and some areas of Citrus Heights within that price range. Newer homes tend, on average, to have smaller lot sizes.

But your question speaks in generalities. If you set up a search, such as going to my website www.suearcher.com, or another realtor's website, you can search for all of Sacramento for homes that meet your other criteria and find some in other towns as well.

I am partial to Elk Grove. But we have great family friendly parks in Elk Grove, the Elk Grove Unified School District has schools which are rated 9 to 10 statewide. With regards to crime statistics, you can check yourself on trulia. The homes are very reasonably priced at around $100 per sqft, they cost less than the construction cost. Check out these homes at

As rental listings are often not on the MLS, it's hard to find accurate data for rental availability across zip codes. You should be able to get satisfactory answers from a local Realtor if you're looking to assess where is a good place to buy an investment property. ... more

Since opinions are often subjective, do keep in mind that top areas are really a matter of personal preferences, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc.; therefore do take the time and visit areas of interest more than once and at different times of day.

The world is backwards Bud what can we say. Logic is out the window and Big Business still rules the Government. Banks say they are not in business to own property and yet we still are foreclosing on homes and denying Short Sale/Loan Mod requests. I just spoke with a US Bank rep and they sold properties last month for $1, yes $1!!! YOu can only make sure that those in your center of influence get educated and consult with professionals as needed to navigate this crazy world we life in! ... more
