WSJ: Sacramento Is California’s Newest Real-Estate Hot Spot
Sacramento is finally seeing the kind of downtown resurgence that is been happening in cities across the U.S. over the past 10 to 15 years. And the region is partly benefiting from some spillover as San Francisco and Silicon Valley’s tech boom brings skyrocketing prices and a housing shortage, pushing buyers to look further afield.There's less risk with Sacramento real estate, not only because of lower prices but also because there are no major earthquake faults nearby. (To be even safer from tremors, if you do buy stay away from the levees.)
About an hour-and-a-half drive northeast of the Bay Area, Sacramento remains relatively affordable. The median price a square foot of a Sacramento-area home is $228, compared with $531 in the Bay Area.
