Good luck. I like El Dorado Hills but too far from work for me.

i dont see anything wrong with that. 100K is a big difference for sure and cheaper HOA or no HOA will help a lot. Nice thing is you are close enough to folsom to take advantage of the shopping there.
congrats!

yes we are happy! only 10 mins away from Folsom so not bad and no HOA! We currently live in Eldorado Hills and its a cool little town and mostly older folks live here but very few shops/grocery stores compared to Folsom.

In Rancho Cordova, the thing you have to watch out about is the schools. In Anatolia, the schools feed into the top performing high school in the Elk Grove School district. There are a bunch of really expensive homes in Rancho Murieta and these students along with Anatolia feed into Pleasant Grove High School. Additionally if you at the commute from Anatolia to Folsom and El Dorado Hills, that is still a pretty easy commute, so if you are working at Intel, this is a neighborhood you might consider, because an equivalent sized house is 100k less than in Folsom or El Dorado Hills. I think this is a neighborhood in Rancho Cordova that is going to strengthen. The schools are good now, more new housing in the area is just going to make it stronger. Because its bringing in more retail.

Now there are also newer housing developments North of Mather Airport in the Folsom Cordova school district that feed into Cordova High (think of the developments off International drive. I would avoid this part of Rancho Cordova because I don't think the new development is big enough to fix the existing problems at Cordova High. You have gang members in Lincoln Village, Mills Park and Cordova Park. I think these newer houses are going to drop quickly as the homes stop looking new. This is a new neighborhood that won't age well.

Rendering plant is what none of these buyers are thinking about My son just purchased in Rancho Cordova. The home will be ready in November. He blew off the fact of living by a rendering plant. I also reminded him of how bad the traffic is out there. This pandemic shutdown isn’t going to last much longer traffic now is minimal compared to normal life . But he doesn’t think any of it will matter.

@Nordygirl, yeah the homes are nice but ooh that smell! Not to mention the nasty commute. Not for me. But if you work in Folsom for Intel or remote can work out.

Traffic is bad everywhere. Capital City Freeway to Roseville and beyond, 50 west from Folsom or EDH if your job is in Sacramento. Elk Grove along 99 heading towards downtown. Hoping people buy close to work but I do realize that's not always possible.

Well now that work for state govt may plan to let us telework into the long term, I am looking outside of expen$ive $acramento! It is getting as bad with overheated real estate prices as the Bay Area and San Diego were 10 years ago. Rich tech workers are leaving the bay area for Sacramento driving up real estate prices. Living in a low tax state like Nevada would be perfect or cheaper place like Arizona if I can telework forever.

Housing isn't cheap in Northern Nevada anymore, that's for sure, and unless you are a winter sports fanatic or a gambler it's not that great of a place to live.
