Elk Grove California Real Estate
Located south of the Sacramento State Capital, Elk Grove is the second largest city in Sacramento County, and one of the fastest growing ones. Originally home to some of the oldest Native American tribes - the Valley Miwok, Southern Maidu, and Patwin tribes, Elk Grove has always been rich in natural resources from trees, plants, animals, and the three nearby rivers, American, Sacramento, and Cosumnes Rivers. Spanish explorers named the area Sacramento Valley in the early 1800's, and it was founded as the town of Elk Grove in 1850, as a base for the gold miners and eventually a major railroad depot. It was officially incorporated into the city of Elk Grove in the year 2000, with an area of 42.2 square miles of land.
The population in the city now is comprised overwhelmingly with families, nearly 80%, and half of them with young children, so many activities are family oriented. It has the 5th largest school district in California and is one of the fastest growing school districts in the United States. There are 38 elementary schools, 8 middle schools, 8 high schools and 4 private schools in the area, as well as 2 California State Universities and several other institutes of higher learning.
Among many public events held in Elk Grove, thousands of people attend the Giant Pumpkin Festival in October, and an outdoor dance production and concert series called Strauss Festival held during summer months - attracting more than 30,000 tourists a year. In addition there are more than 80 parks, 18 walking trails, four recreation centers and two water park/aquatic centers in Elk Grove. Residents enjoy dog parks, sports complexes, skating facilities, and a golf course. Quite the entertainment capital of Sacremento County!
The city's housing is divided into districts known as Laguna West, Laguna Creek, Elk Grover Proper, and East Elk Grove. Elk Grove's historic district is in "Proper" and offers fine older homes and estates. There are around 450 properties for sale in Elk Grove. Prices generally range from just under $300,000 to around $900,000. Use our easy MLS search and browse the available homes, or give us a call and let us do the work for you.
