Elk Grove Entry Level Home Prices
Elk Grove entry-level home prices starting at $350,000 plus are getting hard to find. My niece is home shopping and an 1,100 sq foot home is $350,000. If you want a larger home, say, 1,400+ square feet, it’s going to cost more. Elk Grove schools are in high demand, and that is one of the factors why so many people are moving here.
I have been looking several times per day for homes. I found one property with a huge lot and 1,700 square feet. It needed a new roof, new HVAC and had no landscaping in a giant back yard. Did I mention it was a duplex, so it is not a free-standing home? The kitchen is small, featuring limited cabinets. Too many issues need attention.
We expanded the search to Sacramento near Calvine Road in ZIP code 95829. We even went into 95828, near Auberry. For $350,000 there, you will get 1,450+ square feet. The other challenge is very few properties are for sale. The demand for homes in Elk Grove is pushing pricing up. It looks like a very busy year ahead of us.
If you want to buy while entry-level home prices in Elk Grove are still affordable, that purchase may cost more than you thought, but it’s still a fabulous place to live. Paying rent year after year does not build equity as a tenant. Call today and we will have you pre-qualified with our lender to see how much buying power you have.
