Sacramento, CA, is the state’s capital and best known for being a diverse city. This doesn’t just extend to the population, though. Housing options in the city are also diverse, ranging from affordable family homes to multi-million dollar mansions. There are also houses designed and built in the 1940s and even earlier in the 1900s for some nice retro options.
Being that Sacramento is a diverse city, its neighborhoods reflect this. Lincoln used to be a quiet, agricultural area, but in recent years, it has come into its own as a place for families and retirees. The typical suburban neighborhood, Roseville is rapidly growing to accommodate its surge in population. Midtown is the place for those who like the nightlife and want to experience a neighborhood full of energy. In the Southeast of the city, Tahoe Park offers affordable homes and is ideal for first time buyers. Land Park has a small town quality to it and offers a range of cottages, Tudor homes, bungalows and villas.
The top employers in Sacramento include the federal, state and county governments, the top health systems in the state, technology companies and school systems. The different government entities are by far the top employers in the city. However, health systems come in second with the UC Davis Health system and Dignity Health/Catholic Healthcare West system in the area and offering various jobs in the healthcare sector. Sacramento jobs also come from the various companies whose headquarters are located here, such as Aerojet and Tower Records. Intel, which is located in nearby Folsom, also supplies many jobs opportunities for the area. Of course, locally owned companies can’t be forgotten. They do offer a lot for the job force and for the economy. A few of the top local companies include Runyon Saltzman & Einhorn, DesCor Builders and the Maita Organization.
