History of Sacramento

History of Sacramento

Sacramento Canyon

The part of California that would become Sacramento has been occupied by native American groups like the Maidu and the Nisenan for at least 19,000 years. Originally, that part of California was claimed by the Spanish, and then Mexico. Sacramento was named after the Sacramento River, which was originally called the Río del Santísimo Sacramento or ‘Most Holy Sacrament’. The movement of European peoples into the region after contact was slow, that is until the discovery of gold in 1848. After that, Europeans came in droves, mostly from other parts of Mexico and the United States. By 1850, California was formally made a US State, and Sacramento was one of its more important inland cities.

Location

Before you start looking for land in California, you should know a bit about the geography of Sacramento. The city is built at the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers, which have historically been prone to flooding. Today, much of the land west of the city is reserved as a flood control basin. This river provides a deep water port via a channel to the San Francisco Bay, a rarity for an inland city. This makes Sacramento a rail shipping hub for the entire valley. Sacramento is set on a coastal plain with fairly dry weather. It gets an average of 20 inches of rain every year, just over half the national average of 38 inches. It rarely if ever snows in Sacramento. The high temperatures in July top out at around 93 degrees F, and the average low temperature in January is 39 degrees F. Freezing temperatures are unusual, but not unheard-of. Sacramento is very sunny, with the average year producing 265 sunny days. That is a solid 2 more months of sun every year than the US average. Sacramento Neighborhoods Before you decide whether or not any of the mobile homes in Sacramento, CA are right for you, think about what kind of neighborhood you might want to live in. Will you need a quick commute into the city? Is it more important to be near the best schools? Are you more interested in the city’s nightlife, or its public parks? Each of the following neighborhoods offers something unique. College Greens, Sacramento The College Greens neighborhood is named for Sacramento State University. It is a lovely residential area, with more green space than many places in the city. It is a fine place to hunt down Sacramento, CA mobile homes for sale as well. The median home listing price in College Greens is just under $560,000, but the median home sale price is closer to $585,000, so expect some competitive bidding. On average, homes in College Greens sell after around 43 days on the market, so don’t wait too long to bid! South Land Park, Sacramento You’ll find South Land Park a great place to buy a mobile home in Sacramento, CA. In addition to the odd Sacramento County condo building, you’ll find plenty of large, mid-century ranch homes as well. It offers 9 of the best schools in the city, as well. The median listing price for real estate in South Land Park is just under $660,000, but again the median sale price is higher – around $710,000. Properties here sell even faster than in College Greens as well, with a median time on the market of just 32 days. East Sacramento “East Sac,” as the locals call it, is a very upscale neighborhood, and might be the most sought-after place to buy in Sacramento County, California. One of the neighborhood’s finest points is the 32-acre McKinley Park and all of its recreational amenities. While you might struggle to find Sacramento mobile homes for sale there, you won’t have trouble with other kinds of high-end real estate. Median home prices – both asking and actual sales – are around £$800,000 right now, or about $528 per square foot. The median time on the market is a quick but not hurried 43 days. Midtown Sacramento You won’t have trouble buying a mobile home in Sacramento Midtown. It is an eclectic neighborhood that sees hipsters rubbing shoulders with the last few hippies in existence, and plenty of young professionals in the mix for color. You can find nearly any type of real estate here, from the palatial to more modest manufactured and mobile homes. It is also a very walkable and bikeable area of the city. Median home asking prices here are around $760k, but the actual median sale price is lower, at just $747,000. This works out to around $550 per square foot. As you might suspect when the asking price tends to get negotiated down, homes stay on the market longer in Midtown – around 74 days on average. This helps to give buyers more negotiation room as well, if they are in a position to close quickly.
