Rancho Murieta is nice, but it is a bit away from it all for many. Check out http://www.murietaonline.com/ for more info. There are several rentals out there and they are not badly priced due to begin away from major shopping/jobs.

Decent homes on the market, less than 7 years old, in our price range, at first glance, seem to be limiting us to lincoln and elk grove at the moment.

Initially I was pretty enthused about both prospects however after reading all the posts on this board about Elk Grove, I am starting to wonder....

Is it is bad as everyone is saying?

Seems like crime in running rampant... in which case forget it... I'll stay in South San Jose.

What's up?

and lincoln..... worth a closer look?

I have never felt threatened in San Jose... and don't plan to start now. Is a bullet proof vest mandatory in Sacramento like one would be led to believe here?
Definitely Lincoln!!!

Tano, areas like Whitney Oaks, Granite Bay, and East Roseville are at least 30% higher priced than Lincoln. If that's outside your desired range, definitely check into the Whitney RANCH (not Oaks) area of Rocklin. Price range is very similar to Lincoln, probably even less than Twelve Bridges. Twelve Bridges is nice, but the HOA fees seem unduly high, and it's very hard to get to. Most of Rocklin is very easy to access, and there are enough surface streets that criss-cross across Roseville, rte 65, and I-80, that you can almost avoid the freeways altogether. The major rap on the "mid-range" part of Rocklin is that it's "too suburban" / boring. But if you're concerned about a safe environment for a 3-year old (and maybe more kids?), being "too suburban" is probably not a negative. In general, home prices in Lincoln Crossing & Elk Grove are around $110/sq ft, mid-level Rocklin and Twelve Bridges around $120/sq ft, and East Roseville/Whitney Oaks/Granite Bay around $135-145/sq ft.

I had the opportunity to explore the twelve bridges area in lincoln and I like it. I prefer that over lincoln crossing. Seems like a nicer area without the HOA... no brainer?

How bad is the commute into Sac?

Keep in mind, it easily takes me 45 minutes to an hour to commute 16 miles in the South Bay.

Is it worse than that?

I am also exploring Rockin and Roseville. Seems like perhaps more bang for the buck a bit farther out into Lincoln which has me looking up there.
