My wife and I moved to the Southport area of West Sacramento from Newport Beach and we absolutely love it here! Like Joe, I do live and work here in West Sacramento and I may be a little biased, but I can honestly tell you that our neighbors are fantastic, streets are safe and full of life, parks are all being used and a very important part of this area is that Southport Elementary and Bridgeway Lakes Elementary schools are scoring very high and that is a big draw to this area.
Inventory levels of available homes have dropped substantially, so the selection isn't what it used to be, but with the right Realtor helping you react quickly to new listings, you can edge out the competition. Most homes are receiving multiple offers these days, so you need to know the right value for a home to know that you aren't bidding too high.
As previously mentioned, there are other amenities on the way and this is such a great location, close to so much, but also with the great small town feel. I'd be happy to show you the different neighborhoods and talk with you about how wise it really is to buy in the newer areas of West Sacramento!
