Sacramento is one of the fastest-growing big cities in California. And every day there’s more buzz about the influx of people who are choosing the city over others in Northern California. And it’s just the beginning.
As one of the few places in the state with room to grow, it’s the ideal location for home buyers and investors to make their next move. Still close to the Bay Area — and almost half the price per square foot — Sacramento is on the radar of thousands of home buyers.
So why is this market so hot, and what’s attracting more and more people than ever before? We have the scoop.
A New Sacramento
Curbed SF said it best: Sacramento is experiencing an urban renaissance that’s hard to miss. It’s true. Everywhere you look there’s something new. From restaurants and microbreweries, to the state-of-the-art Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings. New developments are going up all over the city. One notable project is the Railyards, a 244-acre project that will transform Sacramento and is one of the most significant mixed-use developments in the country.
Our Reali Experts agree: if you’re going to buy or invest in Sacramento, do it now. The city has room to grow and no end to new development in sight.
Get More for Less
Since Reali’s launch in Sacramento last year, we’ve seen a lot of activity along the I-80 corridor.
The biggest reason why home buyers and investors are choosing the Sacramento area is affordability.
We’ve heard stories about people renting for years in San Francisco who were finally able to buy a home in Sacramento that wasn’t dated or in need of major renovation and within their budget. Others were tired of barely “just making it” and wanted out of the Bay Area. And with telecommuting a reality, many home buyers are working remotely a few days a week and commuting to San Francisco when they need to.
Bottom line, you can get more home for your money for less than you could in the Bay Area.
