Most Expensive Sacramento Neighborhoods
Sacramento is a large city located in the state of California. With a population of 485,199 people and 171 constituent neighborhoods, Sacramento is the sixth largest community in California.
Housing costs in Sacramento are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.
Unlike some cities, Sacramento isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Sacramento are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs.

One thing noticeable about Sacramento, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Sacramento is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Sacramento a great place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun. In fact, Sacramento is one of the top larger cities in America for educated single professionals to flock.
Sacramento is a big city, and with that comes lots of benefits. One benefit is that most big cities have public transit, but Sacramento really shines when it comes to the extensiveness and use of its public transit system. More than most large American cities, Sacramento citizens use public transit daily to get to and from work. And while there are transportation options, most people in Sacramento ride the bus. Whereas in some cities one is destined to sit in traffic every morning to get to work and every evening to get home, in Sacramento a lot leave their cars at home (if they even choose to own one), and hop a ride on the bus.
The education level of Sacramento citizens is substantially higher than the typical US community, as 29.31% of adults in Sacramento have at least a bachelor's degree.
The per capita income in Sacramento in 2010 was $26,060, which is middle income relative to California, and upper middle income relative to the rest of the US. This equates to an annual income of $104,240 for a family of four. However, Sacramento contains both very wealthy and poor people as well.
