Downtown Real Estate
Downtown Sacramento defies most big-city stereotypes. Not quite metropolitan, it still offers all the cultural and high-end amenities one would expect from a major downtown area. The added perks of this vital hub of the state – small town charm and affordability.
Sacramento is one of the most affordable cities in the west, and downtown is undoubtedly its liveliest neighborhood. Residents live within walking distance of some the region’s largest employers, as well as the town’s finest cultural offerings. Downtown is home to the Wells Fargo Pavilion (Music Circus), Community Center Theatre, the Crocker Museum, as well as culinary gems, galleries, specialty shops and boutiques, coffee shops, pubs and watering holes. Take into account the walk-ability and bike friendly atmosphere, as well as ease of access to public transportation, Sacramentans can easily go days without getting behind the wheel.
Downtown is also a hub of events – farmers markets nearly every day of the week can be found in every section of town, Friday night concerts at Cesar Chavez Plaza, Second Saturday Art Walk, Second Sunday Antique Faire, and tastings and festivals. Downtown dwellers also find the calm and comfort of home in this thriving neighborhood. As with Midtown and East Sac, downtown is home to an aesthetic landscape of homes. Art deco buildings and apartments mingle with Victorians, craftsman, and bungalows. There’s also a surprising amount of green space, more than a handful of parks, and Sacramento’s quintessential tree-canopied avenues.
