If you’ve always wanted to move to California, but you’re worried that you can’t afford to live there, you wouldn’t be alone. But Sacramento is quickly becoming a refuge for people who are looking to live in California but can’t afford to pay an arm and a leg. By most standards, Sacramento is relatively small. While the city proper is home to only half a million people, there are a million more that spill out into the larger metro area. If there was one adjective that most viscerally described what life is like in Sacramento, it would be “green.” Sacramento may be a world-class city, but it’s also an incredibly verdant one. A high proportion of streets are lined with lush trees, and that extends beyond just the suburbs into the heart of the city as well. All told, it’s a city that comes with all of the perks you’d expect from a major urban settlement, but there’s a distinctly small-town ambiance that comes from living in Sacramento.

Questions About Selling a House in Sacramento

What’s the housing market like in Sacramento?

The housing market in Sacramento may seem high to people who are coming from other parts of the United States, but it’s ultimately all about perspective. That’s because while houses in Sacramento may be priced about 5% over the national average, that’s a steal compared to the roughly 22% markup that’s demanded from homes in Los Angeles. Sacramento has largely managed to carve out such a name for itself because of the recession of 2008. Both the cost of living and the cost of housing dropped dramatically in the wake of the recession, and it hasn’t risen back up dramatically in the way some other major west coast cities have. That said, housing prices are continuing to climb. If you already own a home, you can expect steady, if not extravagant, value growth over the course of the next few years. If you’re looking to buy a new home, now is the time to do so. While Sacramento may be cheaper than other California cities, housing prices are ticking upward steadily—even with the risk of Covid virus complicating things. Now is the time to make an investment in Sacramento housing.

How old are the houses in Sacramento?

Sacramento’s history is richly intertwined with America’s. The discovery of gold turned the city into one of the major transit hubs on the west coast, and that’s reflected in the variety of historically preserved business buildings that line the streets of Sacramento. The oldest architecture in the city dates back to the 1850s, but chances are that whatever house you’ll find is going to be more modern. To put things in perspective, the age of the average house in Sacramento is practically the same as the age of the average house in the United States—43 years to 40 years.

How long does it take to sell a house in Sacramento?

The average home in the United States sells within 30 days. The average home in Sacramento sells within about a week. Buyers are highly motivated, and multiple offers are usually made before a sale is completed. Selling your house at the right time can help slim down that wait time even longer.

What is the best time to sell a house in Sacramento?

Selling a home in Sacramento’s housing market is a little more flexible than the majority of cities in the United States. As long as you sell your home in the last eight months of the year, you should be able to earn back at least the value of your home. The first four months of the year are a different story altogether. You especially want to avoid January, when houses can sell for an average as much as 9% below their market value.

What taxes do I pay when selling a house in Sacramento?

The main issue with taxes comes in the form of capital gains. Depending on your income and savings, you could find yourself paying up to 20% of the cost of your house in capital gains. Fortunately, a little due diligence can help you cut down on your costs. For many homeowners, the cost of capital gains taxes can be eliminated altogether.

What’s the fastest way to sell a house in Sacramento?

Houses in Sacramento have a tendency to sell fast. After all, it is one of the most competitive markets in the US. That said, tasks like renovations and repairs can dramatically increase the amount of time you spend trying to sell your house. Using a service like Sundae lets you forget entirely about marketing your home and receive full payment within ten days.

“SUNDAE WAS AWESOME! They delivered on everything they said they would, including advancing money prior to closing. Unfortunately a family member totally trashed my mom's house, and we did not get the price it was worth because of the cleanup. They were afraid of what they could not see. We knew it was mostly trash, But they had to protect themselves. I get it. That was the only drawback. But hey you can walk away from a big mess, but it will cost you. So in the end it's up to you.”

“Very professional and always communicating!!! Very much enjoyed the work relationship !”

Hayes Galitski

Claremont, CA

“From our first contact through closing, Sundae was upfront, transparent, and professional. Ben Ginsberg was personable and thoroughly explained the process and basis for the offer he was authorized to extend to us - on the spot! This was after he toured our home, taking approximately 60 pictures and forwarding them to Sundae's design/sales/assessment team in realtime. The offer was reasonable, we didn't need to make any repairs or improvements, and we were able to negotiate our closing date to accommodate our needs. In short, the process was simple and straightforward; exactly as described by Sundae. If you're thinking of selling your home and don't want the hassle of listing, making repairs, and having showings, check out Sundae - you've got nothing to lose!”
