The first step in moving to Granite Bay is to gather the materials you'll need to apply for an apartment. Some of the most important include bank statements, tax returns, proof of employment, proof of income, copies of ID and more. You're also going to want to save money. Moving can be expensive, and you'll need to put down a deposit upfront. Undoubtedly, the deposit in this area is going to be high; it's not the place that you're going to find any kind of affordable apartment to rent.
One of the most important steps to take before you move is doing research about the neighborhoods in town. After all, why waste time looking for a house somewhere you wouldn't actually be happy living? To learn more about Granite Bay neighborhoods, check out the list below. It will help you narrow down where to find a house to rent in Granite Bay.
Town Center: Town Center is actually just the eastern part of Granite Bay. It's the part nearest the water, and also the area that has the most businesses and commercial options. Like to be in the midst of hustle and bustle and closest to where you can access amenities? This is the place for you. Granted, nothing here is cheap. However, if you're going to looking for "budget-friendly" rental apartments, this is the only area in town to do it.
Barton Rd: So the western side of Granite Bay is the exclusive, upscale, luxurious part of town (even though both parts of town are really like that.) You're not going to find an apartment to live in here, especially if you're cost-conscious at all in your search for city apartments. This is the place to look if you want to live in a grand mansion with a large yard and a pool. If that's what you're looking for, this is the spot, and you probably won't find anywhere better in the area than this.
Granite Bay is one of the most upscale areas in northern California to live. It's basically a fancy suburb of Sacramento, which has a lot of fancy people in it -- like professional basketball players. And it's not only that the cost of homes here is high. The cost of living here is high, officially one of the top 25 most expensive places to live in the U.S. However, what you pay for in money you get back in niceness and amenities. Granite Bay, the body of water itself, is beautiful. Imagine blue water, green parks, and rolling hills behind it. Scenery doesn't get much better than this, especially around Sacramento. That's one draw to the area.
Another is that it affords easy and convenient access to Sacramento with quiet and secluded living at night. The distance between the two is only about 25 miles, which means in half and hour you can be in one of the country's biggest capital city, enjoying world-class dining, watching great sports, and taking in some great city sights. Arts lovers will love the area, because it's home to the world-class Magic Theater and the world-famous Crocker Art Museum. It's also home to the Kings, a great NBA basketball team. For people who like entertainment close to home, there's plenty of it in Sacramento.
Even closer to home is some great stuff to do in Granite Bay. Eating is oen of them. Hawks is a world-class famous restaurant right in town, as is Vaiano Trattoria. Shopppers can delight in Granite Bay Village Shopping Center and Quarry Ponds Town Center. Unsurprisingly, golf is also a central part of life here. Enjoy one of many courses in town -- Rolling Greens Golf Course, Granite Bay Golf Course, Roseville Rolling Greens, and more.
