West Sacramento, California Real Estate Overview

West Sacramento (also known as West Sac) is a city in Yolo County, California. It is contiguous with Sacramento, but is separated by the Sacramento River which is also the county line. This puts West Sacramento in a different county from that of Sacramento. It is a fast-growing community with a population of 48,744 at the 2010 census. That is a significant increase from the 31,615 at the 2000 census. The traditional industrial center of the region since the Gold Rush era, West Sacramento is home to a diverse economy and is one of the area's top four employment centers.

The United States Conference of Mayors named West Sacramento the Most Livable City in America in 2014 in the category of cities with fewer than 100,000 residents.

West Sacramento, incorporated in 1987, consists of three communities that were originally distinct towns: Broderick, Bryte, and West Sacramento (originally just the community north of the port canal and south of the railroads), as well as the Southport area.

Southport, which comprises about half of the city's land area, originally consisted of rural homesteads and small neighborhoods in Arlington Oaks and Linden, but now has a considerable population that resulted from housing booms in the early 1990s and the early 2000s. This added new neighborhoods in Bridgeway, Gateway, River Ranch, and Newport.

With it’s close proximity to the Sacramento River and downtown work, dining and nightlife, West Sacramento has been a hotbed of new development in the past decade. From lofts to new home developments to high end condos, West Sacramento is a great place to live in the Sacramento region. 

In March 2006, IKEA opened a store in West Sacramento near Reed Avenue and Interstate 80 in the Riverpoint Shopping Center. On November 15, 2007 a Home Depot opened in the Riverpoint Shopping Center next to IKEA. Target opened a new store at the Southport Shopping Center directly across from Nugget Market, an upscale grocery store headquartered in Woodland, California. A Lowe's Home Improvement Center just west of Target, behind Arlington Oaks, was completed in February 2008.
