We are exploring lower cost of living options, and better high schools for my teen age daughter. Where are the newer, good school system, nicer areas...preferably a suburb with lots of shopping options, maybe a planned community, houses in the 300's to 600's, tree lined streets, with lakes and parks....maybe that's asking alot, but some of those would suffice.

Thanks for any help....house hunting can be quite daunting.....

Originally from San Jose myself, I've found that Roseville, Granite Bay, Rocklin, and maybe El Dorado Hills are places that we've been focusing on in the area. Roseville having the most shopping/dining options outside of Sacramento, and probably the better school options. Folsom lake is very close to all of them. Not sure about the tree lined streets or parks just yet though.

Where in San Jose are you now?

Thanks for the info. I was thinking of Roseville, but I really want a gated community, preferably a golf community and El dorado Hills seemed nice. Any recommendations on realtors. I'm from Hollister actually, but most don't know where that is....

Default You know about the asbestos right?

It occurs naturally in El Dorado Hills.

Eldorado Hills: Naturally Occurring Asbestos in California | Region 9: Toxics | US EPA

NOA Map

El Dorado Hills is a nice community, but I do wonder about the long term effects of living in the stuff.

Granite Bay / Roseville border is the best area. Great homes, close to the highway, 5 minutes away from the Galleria Mall. Nice gated communities

Roseville and Granite Bay both have nice gated golf communities. Difference is you'll have to drive a little farther from Granite Bay for your shopping. Home prices are higher in Granite Bay.

Default Ps

My husband and I recently sold a home in Roseville with Katie and Sparky Pond at ReMaxGold. They are a husband and wife team and did a great job for us. They are very knowledgeable about this area and very ethical. I would definitely use them again.

Default san jose

San Jose is super expensive! I don't even know if you could find a decent house for a million dollars let alone 600,000? Apartments there start at $1,500 a month for a one bedroom one bath small nothing special apartment. I wish I could afford to live there though so can't blame you for trying. Sacramento is still affordable but for how much longer God only knows as most of California is becoming a place only for the rich.
