I will be coming from Texas next week to find a nice rental home in one of these areas. I will be working at TACOM in Warren so I don't think the commute will be that bad. Any suggestions as to which one would be best for kids with regards to schools/recreation/sports?

We have been in our home for over 4 years now and am fevershly trying to sell it otherwise my job will buy it in 2 months.

Not sure what the rental standards are in relation to rental applications...
My husband and I will have 10 days to find a home for our family of four.

Both are good, solid areas. However; I would choose Troy over Sterling Heights.

Troy is centrally located, offers better schools than Sterling Heights, great city services including a excellent library and recreational center. It also won the Sports Illustrated City of the year award a few years ago.

The west side of Troy ( East of Livernois or Rochester) is considered more prestigious than the east side, but both are safe and family-friendly areas.

Personally, I like SH better than Troy, but that is only my opinion. Depends on what you are looking for.
