Great Sacramento Communities for Bay Area Home Buyers

New Homes at Spring Lake

It’s no secret that new build Bay Area homes are becoming unaffordable for many long-time area residents – to the point that many are trading in the endless cycle of renting or a near soul-crushing mortgage for a Sacramento commute instead.

Sound crazy? It’s not.

Especially if you work from home or can strike a deal with your employer to telecommute at least one day a week from home.

Think about it. Imagine all the fun you could have on the weekends with the money you can save by buying in Sacramento. The median price for a single-family old resale home in the Bay Area is now over $900,000, while the median price for a brand new home in Sacramento is still under $500,000. Plus, you can enjoy more privacy at home too with larger interior spaces, single and two-story floorplan options and actual backyards where you can hang with family and friends.

Love listening to music or podcasts? You’re golden. Think you can make calls or get work done on the train? Even better. Ready to start looking at Sacramento new home communities? Let’s go.
