Moving to East Foothills

Due to an influx of residents wishing to capitalize on the surplus of jobs created by last decade's tech sector boom, East Foothills and surrounding areas have seen an abundance of housing developments and residential properties built to meet the market demand of high-tech workers in Silicon Valley. That being said, the continuous arrival of techies to the region means that rentals are consistently in high demand. One should therefore plan their relocation activities accordingly. Single family homes for rent tend to be in high demand, whereas apartment rentals may be easier to acquire. In either case, expect more lead time in securing a rental than in other areas.

Furthermore, because of the high volume of rental applicants, landlords and rental offices in East Foothills may be more selective in screening potential residents. Typical items required for applying for rentals include a credit report, bank statement, pay stubs from the previous 2 months, as well as references from former landlords.
