Elk Grove Housing Market

  • Properties in the area are selling over the median home price of Sacramento $500,000, including bare land. However, there are currently three residential properties in the following three Elk Grove zip codes (95624, 95757 and 95758) that are selling under $500,000. I'll share those properties: 9549 Colton AveElk Grove, CA 95624, 9613 Melrose AveElk Grove, CA 95624, 6484 Laguna Mirage LnElk Grove, CA 95758
  • Many development plans have been kept under wraps, but investigative reporting by the Sacramento Journal has brought them to light.


The city of Elk Grove is poised for significant growth and development. From large-scale residential projects and research hubs to entertainment centers and infrastructure improvements, these developments promise to transform the area, enhancing livability and economic vitality. Keep an eye on these projects as they progress, shaping the future of the City.
