If you're thinking about moving here, it's time to start your hunt! You'll want to start looking for homes here as soon as possible to make sure you can jump on the right one. When you start your hunt, try to make a good amount of appointments with landlords in order to get a good feel for the area and what it has to offer. When you go to your appointments with various landlords, you'll want to bring along all the requisite paperwork to make sure you can get the application process rolling. You'll need a copy of your ID, your credit report, bank statements, pay stubs, letter of employment and references. Bringing all this along from the start will help save you time and energy during your hunt!
North Fair Oaks is a quaint little town with a lot to offer its residents! Here's what you can expect from some of the different neighborhoods in town, from the bustling downtown area to the quieter parts on the outskirts of town.
Downtown: The city's downtown core offers its residents restaurants, various shops and entertainment. There are mostly rental apartments in this area but you can find a few stand-alone houses tucked back on the side streets.
El Camino Real / Woodside: This is one of the busiest intersections in all of town and living here means you'll have easy access to both main roadways to get around town or outside of it. That means it's a great place to live for anyone who has to commute for work! There's also a Target nearby for you shopaholics out there!
Florence Street / Marsh Road: Head over here if you like a taste of the laid-back suburban life. You'll find quiet, winding streets filled with trees and beautiful homes, a quaint neighborhood post office and none of the noise and distraction of the more commercial areas in town. It's also just across the highway from the beautiful waterfront of Ravenswood Slough, which is a perfect place to hunker down for a picnic or just relax on a sunny afternoon!
Every year North Fair Oaks puts on their annual summer festival, which includes tons of local arts and crafts, food, music and games to please everyone. The city also maintains the Fair Oaks Beautification Association (or FOBA) is a nonprofit who's main job is to plant trees and beautify the neighborhood part through volunteer service activities, as well as install traffic calming devices to encourage a safer community for all.
