I am sure you can find a home in Land Park to rent...I would contact a property management company such as Sacramento Delta. The other option is to drive the streets and look for rental signs. Having said this, did you happen to read the latest article in the Sacramento Bee that talked of purchasing a home actually being more advantageous than renting?

I love Sacramento. My partner and I also have a place in San Francisco and it's fabulous being there, but there's something amazingly livable about Sacramento in general--plus the weather's great, there's actual sun in the morning, and you can enjoy an evening outdoors without layering. ;-)

As a San Francisco urbanite, you'll probably find that Sacramento's Downtown ( and Midtown ( neighborhoods offer the kind of activity and amenities you've become accustomed to. Downtown Sacramento is more urban (read: less residential, more office) and Midtown is more mixed use (think Hayes Valley or a more active Noe Valley). And flat. Don't forget flat.

Be prepared for warmer summers (you'll use air conditioning), but I definitely recommend that you check out Sacramento. And, if you're looking for something quieter or a little more suburban, there are plenty of neighborhoods to choose from with their own look and feel.

Dear Guy,
Due to the current credit tightening, your appraiser might have gotten a new set of guidelines from the lender and being conservative on the total sq. footage. The accepted way is anything that is permitted so you may want to check with the county or through the preliminary title report on the square footage that is in the book. Unless there is a record that the additional (+,-)500 sq. footage, I will follow the county record.

Good Luck,
