From Davis to Folsom, Elk Grove to North Highlands, Movoto.com looked at data for 18 Sacramento suburbs, and it should come as no surprise that Folsom ranks as best.
Folsom scores high in everything from safety, to schools, relatively short 25 minute commute time, and quality of life.
In addition, says Movoto, “unique to Folsom are things like the Folsom Lake State Recreation area, a vast park for hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, and even horseback riding, and the postcard-worthy historical district, dotted with museums, restaurants and shops.”
Folsom’s desirability is also reflected in housing pricing and availability. Looking at Folsom homes for sale today, there are 121 on the market, about 40 less than last year at this time, and the average home sold is going for $203 per square foot, the highest in the region.
