Very nice if you are looking for a high end home. Nice new area. Good neighborhoods around the development.

Default Not the same Morgan Creek I saw this weekend...

Morgan Creek is a neighborhood that has suffered disastrously from the recent market slide. Folks purchased homes that were well beyond their means, and now almost 50% (based on a drive-through this weekend) of the homes are vacant/foreclosed. We saw some houses with holes punched in the interior walls and other vandalism attempts by homeowners being evicted. In one of the houses, someone tried to take (unsuccessfully) the granite counter from a kitchen island, cracking it in half down the middle.

A couple of additional points:

Home owner's association and mello roos fees are not in line with the benefits associated with these additional costs, or the lack of these costs in neighboring areas. The front yards of many of the foreclosed homes are in disarray and the appearance of the neighborhood suffers greatly.

Morgan Creek is on the very western edge of Roseville, bordered by a lower income, crime stricken area of Sacramento (North Highlands/Antelope). If you work, eat or play in Sacramento, you will be driving through the ghetto to access the freeway. Sure, you could avoid it if you want to make your drive longer by starting out in the wrong direction...

The neighboring golf club has been unable to meet membership expectations, and is also struggling. The future of the whole development is in doubt.

Substantial development is said to be planned for the area just north of Blue Oaks. Traffic will be a nightmare.


I'm not inherently biased against this area, just someone who recently visited and was pretty surprised and dismayed by what I saw. The houses are definitely big, if not on irregular or somewhat small lots.

Forget Morgan Creek. Many of the homes are vacant and well beyond your needs, as someone said. Plus, it is a gated community. It seems like a boring, boring place to live.
I live in Antelope and I walk over to Morgan Creek area every once in a while. It is bordering with Antelope. Antelope is not that bad of a community, as someone said. North Highlands has some issues. But NH isnt as close to Morgan Creek as Antelope is. You wont have any problems with crime, I believe. It is just that the homes are so damn expensive and many of the homes are vacant, and the area is lifeless. ........

Morgan Creek is one of the nicest areas in the Sacramento area. The residents are friendly as are the people at the country club. They just added a pool and exercise room that are wonderful. The area is about half and half for retired and non retired folks. The houses are definetly upscale and everyone takes pride in them.

Wondering if anyone has any new updates for this area. We currently have an accepted offer on a 4,900 square foot house there for 450,000. Wondering if this area can "come back". Seems many of the houses are getting bought again, but not sure what to think. We can still get out of the deal with no penalties for 2 weeks so trying to gather more info. Thanks for any additional info!

The area will come back once the economy picks back up. The golf course is very nice and the area will rebound. I would live there if the commute to Sacramento was not so bad. That house will be a solid investement for sure!

Shope, thanks. If it were not for the mello and HOA charges, this would be a no brainer.

Yea, you definitley got to weigh that in your decision. There plenty of houses in the Roseville area without HOA. There is a community off of 65 and twelve bridges that has no HOA or mello roos I believe.

We bought a home in morgan creek about a month ago and it was the best desicion ive made. The community is comming back to life and the neighbors are freindly. Kids ride there bikes and have football games. The club pool and gym room are awesome extras. Its only a 10 min drive to the roseville galeria area. Many homes are selling for high prices still. A new jmc 4,260 sqft sold for 800,000
