It's been over a month since you posted your question to this forum, but I thought I'd offer my 2 cents to the discussion, in case you haven't yet found a home. You live in Folsom, another nice community. Will you be moving to Elk Grove or are you looking to purchase an investment property?
If you ask about a "good" area to purchase a home in Elk Grove, you will get a variety of responses, many primarily based on the individual's own opinion, something you may have already noticed. I'm curious to know what you mean by "good". Are you looking for highly rated schools, is safety/low crime a top priority, do you need to live close to shopping, restaurants, and freeway? Is a high return on investment your goal? If you were to identify what you value the most in a home or neighborhood you want to live in, it might be easier to pinpoint the areas your agent can recommend for you!
Best of luck to you in your search :)

I am also a big fan of Stonelake which is in 95757, bordering Interstate 5. Laguana West with its scenic lakes in the 95758. Camden west off of Sheldon in the 95624 is another area I like. Windsor Down over by Waterman and Elk Grove Blvd in the 95624 is another newer build neighborhood to my liking. Iam also a big fan of the 95829, it borders the Elk Grove area.
That's my two cents. Feel free to give me a ring! Make it a GREAT day!

You might first want to start with an agent who specializes in that area. That agent will first need to know how you plan to finance your purchase. If you need to be prequalified, you want to take care of that first.
How much you plan to spend will determine how much home you can afford and what properties you should look at.
If you are already straight in the areas above, again, an agent who specializes in Elk Grove, such as myself, would be best in assisting you. There are many great areas in Elk Grove but it will depend on what your sepecific needs and goals are. A meeting would help determine what you are looking for and how to best strategize for your property search, previewings, and making offers.
This market is very challenging but can be very rewarding for the buyer who has a full-time agent who also has a plan.
Hope that helps.
