Sacramento Property Market and Real Estate Guide

(Sacramento, California - CA, USA)

Photograph of Sacramento CathedralCalifornia is home to many interesting cities and towns that all command a lot of attention from eager house hunters, and none more so than Sacramento. It is continuously voted by various publications as one of the best places to live in the US and the city is a melting pot of cultures, ages and races.

The city is split into four main areas - Central / Eastern, Southwestern, Southeastern and American River. All of these regions boast various neighborhoods, with the most popular being Downtown - located within the Central / Eastern district. Being the capital of California, the city also has a large government presence, adding to the demand for decent property.

Old Sacramento is a popular tourist attraction in its own right, with old cobbled streets and a quiet way of life, being known for its eclectic mix of cultures, and vibrant arts and theater scene. The city's coastal location is a huge draw for many property buyers, and rentals and purchases command high prices both in the city center and within the coastal areas.

Renting Serviced Apartments

Sacramento boasts a good selection of rented apartments and thanks to the variety of people who reside here, the rented apartments on offer vary from plush properties complete with communal gymnasiums and gardens, through to basic blocks on the outskirts of the city.

California isn't cheap and though demand in Sacramento is lower than LA or the Bay area, it is still sought after by out of state immigrants looking for better opportunities and weather. This puts pressure on serviced apartments, as new arrivals need temporary lodging when they first arrive, so expect to pay a premium.

Buying Apartments and Houses

Using an agent to purchase property as a non-American buyer is vital, as is using the services of a solicitor. When purchasing property, it is worth noting that the process can be time consuming and that the final fees will likely add up to around ten percent on top of the purchase price.

Paperwork and background checks will take a long time to complete and criminal backgrounds, as well as financial histories, will all be looked into by authorities.

Real Estate Agents

Sacramento is home to a wide variety of people and therefore there is a high demand for estate agents who speak a foreign language. It is relatively easy to find agents who speak English and Spanish, and these are often advertised over the Internet and in local telephone books.
