To begin with, stop thinking that the real estate market is in a tail-spin and getting worse every day. For the Sacramento Region, this is just not true. Has there been a downturn in list prices? Absolutely. A downturn was needed. Like any commodity, from stocks to houses, runaway prices do not benefit the majority of consumers. The housing market has stabilized and now is a great time to buy. Will prices go lower? Only on those homes that were grossly overpriced to begin with. Buyers are in a good position in this market to negotiate a home to a correct price.
Easy to do? Nope. And this is why you need to be working with an experienced real estate agent.
The Sacramento Region is a great place to live and work and now is an excellent time to buy.
The city of Elk Grove, founded in 1850 and located just south of the city of Sacramento, is a fast-growing community with a lot to offer residents of the Sacramento region. Like other communities in the region, Elk Grove is within easy driving distance to both the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The community has preserved open space such as the Cosumnes River Preserve and the Stone Lakes Wildlife Refuge, and created parks to ensure that even as it grows, Elk Grove retains its natural beauty. The city is also home to cultural events such as the Johann Strauss Festival, Dickens Faire, and Community Harvest and Giant Pumpkin Festival.
Elk Grove offers a broad range of properties from starter homes, condos, new home developments, and ranch estates. Here at New Condos Online, you can find information about the Somerfield and Laguna Pointe condo developments.
As the population of Elk Grove has increased, it has been able to retain its small town charm, while providing residents with urban amenities making it a great place to live in the Sacramento region.
Economy Watch from the Sacramento Regional Research Institute indicates that while the Sacramento Region saw a slight drop in job growth in May compared to the previous month, growth has remained above 2 percent, and the Sacramento Region remains above the Bay Area, statewide, and national averages.
