If you’re thinking about moving to Sacramento, then the first thing to do is research what neighborhood would work best for your family. Personally, I must admit that I’m slightly obsessed with Midtown. First off, the historical architecture is incredible! These fabulous Victorians and pristine Craftmans are a perfectly kept slice of history that each have their own personality. Secondly, if you’re looking for an active community to be a part of, this is it! Quaint boutiques, a wonderful farmer’s market, intimate cultural events, and bike-friendly lanes make this a place to savor. There is also the Midtown Association that the aspects that make this community rare and special are preserved. This area is on the more expensive side, but don’t worry! There are places to rent if you’re not able to own your own home.
East Sacramento is another popular neighborhood in Sac. Again, the architecture is something unique that most communities aren’t fortunate enough to have. In the 1930s and ’40s, this area exploded with homes as individual as those who originally lived there. You’ll find grand European revivals, modest ranch-style homes, charming English Tudors, and detailed Spanish villas. In the neighborhood and within walking distance are some fabulous restaurants, breweries, and coffee shops, so forget making dinner and stroll to the neighborhood hot spots after work.
Downtown Sac is the heart of the city and has the energy and big city feel that you would expect. The cool thing about Downtown is that different streets have different vibes; want a sleek and modern apartment with contemporary design? Check out the O1 Lofts or Elliott Building. Are you looking for something more traditional in Old Town? The Orleans looks like an image from an old Western movie, but the inside is as posh and sleek as any highrise in San Francisco.
Thinking about buying a new build? You’re in luck! Currently, there are about 20 new build communities being built ranging from condos to single-family homes and range from the low $300,000’s to over $1 million. You can find them all over the city so review your commute, budget, school districts, and recreational activity locations to find the one that best suits your needs.
