Surprisingly there were 7 homes in the Sacramento that sold for 20,000 or less in the past year, all were sold for cash and all were big fixers or had been "red tagged" for code violations. Most were in the Elder Creek Fruitridge area, so find an agent that works that area. How to do that? visit open houses in the area is one way.
There were also a few in Stockton and Modesto (same issues)
Not impossible, but you will most likely need cash.

to search for homes that would meet your criteria. When you have zoomed in to an area that you are comfortable with, and identified the homes that would suit your needs, feel free to contact me or any of the other realtors in the area.
are unfortunately priced out of the market in this area. The land under a home
is going to be worth a minimum of 15,000 so the numbers will not work at this
time. Although you don't want a mobile or condo, that might be the first step for
you on the ladder to home ownership. Your only other choice to try to accumulate
funds so you can purchase in the future. Good luck to you.
If you are looking for a nice home to live in, you really need to start with at least a 65,000 budget, and be looking in 95815,95838, 95660, 95824, parts of 95820 and possibly 95822. Goes up from there and there is little inventory and many buyers, so we are seeing multiple offers on many properties.
That is the state of the Sacramento market.
