Hello everyone,

We will be moving to Sac in few months and coming from Midwest we are really excited at so much outdoor and mild weather, that this place has to offer. I would be working in at UC Davis medical center. I have looked up the usual recommended areas and they are all very beautiful - we loved Folsom, el dorado hills. But they all seem too far for usual daily commute.

We have two kids who can go to private schools — sac country day is what we are thinking. So school district is not important but safety of the family, walkability, access to usual kids activities - sports/music is important.
I will have to drop the kids to school.


What would be the best place to look in the city without worrying about hassels of daily commute. We are coming from Midwest so usual commute is 20-25 min.

What would you all suggest

- east sac ?
- gold river ?

South most corner of Folsom might be doable ttoo— what would be some good neighborhoods?

Appreciate your help

Thanks

You can look into the Sierra Oaks neighborhood. Close proximity to Sac Country Day and probably about 5 miles away from UCDMC. 10-15 mins from Downtown/Midtown and minutes away from East Sac. You can get a home in the vicinity in Campus Commons or the surrounding neighborhood in the $400k range.

Good Luck.

Yeah if money is not too much of an issue for you then I definitely second the Sierra Oaks area -- check the neighborhoods along American River Drive as you head east from Howe along over Watt Ave into Willhagin past Rio Americano HS, Del Dayo Estates up to William B Pond park. Those are some of the nicest areas in Sacramento in my opinion. $400k would be optimistic... you'd be looking at more like $600k for a smaller sfh that has no updates and then you can go all the way up into the millions from there.

Those are all good recommendations! Given the tuition at Country Day I am guessing that they probably could buy a lovely home in almost any neighborhood in Sacramento, a friend of mine pays the tuition for her granddaughter there and I think she said it's close to 24k a year.
