City GuideLake Forest
"Leave it all the fights and all / Summers getting colder / Drive all night to hold you tight / Back to California." (- Sugarcult, "Back to California")

Lake Forest, or El Toro as it was originally known, is one of the few eco-friendly cities in the US. Packed with green parks, woodlands and its two man-made lakes, this city is a model on how to live in harmony with the environment. Lake Forest has managed, on its own, to bunch up about 78,439 people in the city, making it the 99th most populated area in California. Initially started as a gardening area and stagecoach stop between LA and San Diego, this city is home to the famous historical house, Serrano Adobe. With parks, history, and the California sunshine, Lake Forest is beckoning to you.

Moving to Lake Forest

Given the low real estate vacancy rates in some neighborhoods, a realtor might come in handy if you want to move to Lake Forest. Some of them can foresee distressed landlords from a mile away. But the best place to start would be online listings because it is free and quite informative.

Real estate rental costs in Lake Forest are among the highest in the nation; although certain cities beat it to the top of the renting order. Expect to pay way more than than the national average for a small condo, studio apartment or for a land hogging, residence.

This neighborhood is season-proof. So dont expect to get landlords running to you during winter. The best advice would be to rent when the time comes for you to move. But it's always good to look ahead of time to ensure you have enough time to scout out as many places as possible before making the life-changing decision. Your relocation could be work related or even love related. Whatever the reason it is, it'll be a good excuse to move to Lake Forest.

It's always been said that nothing last like first impressions when it comes to meeting people for the first time. And it isn't different when it comes to meeting landlords -- they are people too! So if you want to rent a house, arm yourself with anything that will speak in your favor. For example, a good credit report will show a landlord that you're fiscally responsible. So will your latest paycheck, employer’s letter, etc. Also try to get as much details about the property you seek to rent from your landlord. For example, is there a pet policy that will force you to send Clifford or Garfield away? A referral letter from you current landlord will also help you in case you are competing for the same house with another annoying potential renter.
