Which of these cities is "nicer"? I know that Rocklin is about 1/3 the size which is nice. Home prices/rent is relatively cheap in these 2 cities right?

Both are nice and roughly comparable in quality. Although Rocklin is probably more homogeneous in being a primarily desirable area. Whereas Roseville may have areas that are considered less desirable.

Roseville has a lot more industries and commerce, it's overall a real city while Rocklin is simply just a bedroom community.

Yes. I would consider either city a desirable area. Though there are some areas in Roseville which are better than others.

I'm a realtor, so if you need any help, don't hesitate to message me.

Rocklin and Roseville are similar. Rocklin has better schools, but Roseville has better community amenities, especially parks, and more retail. Home prices are also pretty similar depending on which community you're considering. East Roseville and East/Central Rocklin homes tend to be a little more expensive than West Roseville/West Rocklin homes, although Morgan Creek was selling between $500-800k not too long ago.

As a resident of Rocklin, I can say the boundaries between the 2 "cities" are so blurred that I never know which city I'm in. Living in Whitney Ranch (Rocklin), I'm always surprised to realize that anything beyond Blue Oaks along Fairway is considered Roseville...and it's only 5 minutes from my home. My point? I don't think it much matters. Rocklin and Roseville schools are similarly rated, but Roseville teachers are slightly higher-paid. Rocklin schools perform better on API scores as a whole. It's really about the 'feel' of the communities. Most of Roseville is older, so there's more mature trees and greenery. Rocklin is a little more open and spacious... Be careful of West and SW Roseville, as they are near the Sacto County line, and parts of Sac County (Antelope, etc.) have a higher crime profile.

When I googled Rocklin and Roseville I saw a comment that home prices in rocklin are getting affected negatively as more people are moving to Roseville. It even made a comment that Rocklin residents are burning their homes for insurance purposes as the value of their propert
y went down.
