Yikes. The Bay Area invasion of Sacramento appears to be intensifying, and what a lovely couple.

A good friend of mine works in real estate in the Sacramento area and she says that's actually mostly a myth. Coincidentally, I just happened to talk to her yesterday and we talked about the Sacramento market and specifically that Citrus Heights house. She says probably only about 1/3 of people looking to buy homes in the Sac area are actually from the Bay Area despite the perception that the home prices there are mainly being driven up from Bay Area people.

A third of homebuyers from another metropolitan area is huge, think about what youre saying.

I have family (my niece) that just bought in Granite Bay.
Nice water view and all that but...
It was not cheap and they are not liking it one bit.
800K and yet not the best
The house might need 200k to be right.

It is not Danville or Alamo.

It is a lot more affordable though.

I do know the area though quite well and I am just not a fan of it.

Your mileage may vary.

That is all I got.

This is the house incase anyone was wondering

https://www.redfin.com/CA/Citrus-Hei...m_content=link

It looks like every house except one on a lot no bigger than the house are all under contract in the $375-$400K range.

Yeah I don't get why this house got so many offers. The pool is nice but it's dated looking with mediocre schools. Has "fresh paint" though! lol.

I had a feeling this would happen....The Sacramento Region is being influenced by The Bay Area and has become pricier than other parts of The Central Valley...Just by looking at the map The Bay Area's influence might extend as far south as Modesto,Turlock and Merced as time goes by.
