Majority of houses there were built in '60 or early '70. There are not many turnovers in those areas. So, I assume that majority of people who live there are in retiring ages whose kids are probably out for colleges. So, if we are young family, it will be less likely to have another young families as neighbors?

Also, San Juan school district has an open enrollment. Are we better off paying less money buying a house in other areas, i.e, Carmichael and still going to the same schools? Any thoughts?

What is your price range - rent or buy. What would you like in a house?

The nice area BY there is American River Drive, which goes to the Del Dayo Elementary school. But those are some NICE houses. Sierra Oaks is hit and miss and the more north of Fair Oaks Blvd you are - the more crime happens.

My rule of thumb is stick close to the River.

How's about people in Sierra Oaks and Fair Oaks? Are majority of them in their retiring ages?

Well I live in Fair Oaks and I'm in my mid 30s with two small kids But I live in the far side by all the better schools (Off HAzel Ave)

Sierra Oaks area has two kinds of people, older who have lived in their house forever. And 20-30 somethings, who might not be of "good intentions" (dangerous)

Fair Oaks is big, and can't really be generalized.

The American River Drive area, will have more 40 somethings with kids - and they probably make 200K+ a year, so it's safe there and clean.
