Welcome to my blog site discussing the Folsom area and our local real estate market. I hope you will find my site both interesting and informative and would really like to hear from you.
I thought I would begin by saying that Folsom, CA is a great town. Folsom was founded during the mid 1800 gold rush era and pretty much was a rough and tumble place. It took awhile to tame the town and we have managed to save a bit of our past history in “Old Town” Sutter Street. Sutter Street is currently under renovation to preserve and enhance our celebration of the city’s history. Completion is set prior to the holiday season 2010.
At present, Folsom is a beautiful thriving city set on the American River. We boast superior schools with high school API index in the 860 range and ranked 10 (on a scale of 1 – 10). www.fcusd.org We have attracted major employers including Intel, Kikkoman, Cal ISO (the energy grid). We have a gorgeous new outdoor shopping mall near completion, and of course our beloved Old Town area with historic shops, restaurants, and museums. We have Folsom Lake College, miles of trails for hiking and biking, a ballet company, and the list goes on. We way more than a bedroom community!
Our neighborhoods offer homes for varied lifestyles and budgets. The real estate market has decreased throughout the Sacramento region, but Folsom has suffered less than many other areas. We have homes on the market starting in the $100,000 range and top out over $1,500,000. You could say, there is a home here for everyone!
I am a Folsom raving fan. Folsom really is a great town. See the Folsom website for all things “Folsom”. www.folsom.ca.us
