Most Expensive Sacramento Neighborhoods

Unlike some cities where white-collar or blue-collar occupations dominate the local economy, Sacramento is neither predominantly one nor the other. Instead, it has a mixed workforce of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Sacramento is a city of sales and office workers, professionals and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Sacramento who work in office and administrative support (16.49%), sales jobs (9.70%) and management occupations (8.86%).

Sacramento is one of the most attractive larger cities for people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. This makes it a good place to live for young singles in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting their professional careers. Although Sacramento is a large city, this demographic is significant enough that young professionals will find many others like themselves here, with really good opportunities for friendships, recreation, romance, and more.
One of the benefits of being a big city like Sacramento is having a public transportation system, but in Sacramento the transit system is the mode of choice for lots of people getting to and from work every day. You will find many people using the bus for their daily commute, even though other transportation options exist. If you ask these commuters, many will tell you that not having to drive in the snarl of big city traffic is one of main reasons for leaving the car at home, or even not owning a car at all. With so many people taking the bus Sacramento benefits from a reduction in air pollution and traffic.
