Elk Grove will soon have its first Shopping Mall. No, I didn't say another strip mall...I said Shopping Mall. The target date for Elk Grove Promenade Mall is projected for October 2008. This has been discussed prior to the City of Elk Grove becoming a City in 2000. So, it is safe to assume that a lot of thought and effort has been put into the design, location and retail. There are those who are against this Shopping Mall.  Let's talk about that for a minute. The City of Elk Grove needs to have money in order to run the City. Where does the City get money? It gets money from the taxes, the business owners when you keep your purchases in the City of Elk Grove, money from builders etc.  Since building has reduced dramatically in Elk Grove, the revenue for the City of Elk Grove has taken a...

We are celebrating Earth Day, and we need to celebrate Earth Day everyday. This will help each of us and each of our children and their children. The children in Elk Grove Unified School District have been learning about recycling for several years.  It not such a hard thing to do. Start small just like you did when you were younger and add something new to your vocabulary of good earth things to do each month. Many of the homes in Elk Grove have dual pane windows to cut down on the electric use of the air conditioning and heating. If your home doesn't have dual pane windows or they have lost their seal, you may want to replace them. This will not only help with your energy bills but it will help sell your house to a prospective home buyer. Fix those leaky faucets and check with local n...

YES, The California Cow is a Happy Cow! And now, the dairy farmers are happy, too! It seems that we can now call our "happy California Cows", "happy California Green Cows." PG & E as well as SMUD due to Government regulations have been mandated to reduce their toxic admissions into the California environment and have come up with a marvelous plan that some ranchers have been accomplishing for awhile now. That is that these companies will use the manure to make electricity.  It takes two cows to supply one household with electricity for a year. With the plans in the pipework, 100,000 families will be obtaining their electricity from our "happy California GREEN cows." Now, isn't that a plan! Elk GroveDairy farmers are using their cows to make electricity, too. So, we have "Happy Elk Grove...

Oh.. Day Light Savings Time in Elk Grove, California...The time has been changed by those in great places of most importance and authority...As I was sipping my morning coffee on this auspicious Sunday, I noticed that the atomic clock that is in tune with the satellites up in space did not know that the time had indeed changed. It registered the same time as the rest of the clocks in the house that I had not taken the time to update. The only change in time was on my new Vista HP computer.This got me thinking...who started "Daylight Savings Time?" Somewhere, in the depths of my subconscious I think I recall that Day Light Savings Time was originally started for the farmers. Does anyone remember this? It seems that changing the time would give the farmers additional day light in order to...

Noted as the fastest growing City in the U.S., Elk Grove has been keeping record speed with the growth that has occurred over the past few years. This once sleepy farm town, where a man from Elk Grove, Missouri opened up the first hotel in 1850 and named it after his home town, Elk Grove is now a bustling metropolis.   Comprised of middle to upper income families that are environmentally atoned, Elk Grove has the first nation wide 100% hybrid electric commuter bus fleet, the e-tran.

This is my town where I live, shop and work. Elk Grove officially became a City the year that I moved from the Bay Area in 2000. Very little housing was in Elk Grove as compared with today...a real boom took place over the past six years. In fact, I believe that I officially heard that Elk Grove was the fastest growing City in the United States which certainly wouldn't surprise any of the residents here. The old timers hated to see us all come. They had a peaceful life with one stop sign in the town with wide open spaces. But, we are here and the hustle and bustle is booming!If you shut your eyes for very long or don't go a certain direction for a few weeks, you're liable to not recognize a particular corner. The school district in Elk Grove is Elk Grove Unified School District which op...

Elk Grove, CA became a City in 2000 and is just a mere 10 minutes from Downtown Sacramento. The City of Elk Grove has been growing leaps and bounds since I moved here in 2000. So much so, that the City now has three zip codes. For more information about the City of Elk Grove be sure to check here.Below are the Real Estate statistics for the month of October 2006. Each Zip Code is addressed separately.The only disclaimer is that Days on the Market in the Sacramento County area is not true to form. Since homes are put on and taken off sporadically by either the Listing agent or due to the Seller changing Real Estate Listing firms, these numbers are skewed. They represent the last time that the house for sale was listed.City Name Homes For Sale Average Sales Price Average Days On Market Ho...

Today was a great day! The Red Hat Ladies of Elk Grove set out for a ten minute ride to Old Town Sacramento where we took a 2 hour ride on the Spirit of Sacramento River Boat up the Delta. Yes, the Red Hat Ladies were out today wearing their chosen colors, purple and red. This group of Red Hat Ladies is known as the "Cat in Hats."  The Spirit of Sacramento is a 110 foot paddle wheeler with several decks having both an inside view as well as the ability to roam the outside decks. We were all very grateful that the forecast rain did not occur and hamper our day. The views were great and proved to be a very relaxing day after drinks and lunch.You're probably wondering what this has to do with Real Estate. Quite a bit. Sacramento is located in the valley and the Sacramento Delta and the Ame...
