Check out this interactive map of where Americans are moving. It’s put out by the IRS and Forbes and is very cool. It looks like Sacramentans may be moving North and those South of us are moving here. It’s a really neat visual tool. Let me know what you think!

Sacramento Home Sales for May are the strongest they have been in 4 years! Over 3,700 homes were purchased in May alone according to a Sacramento Bee Article. Additionally, the average sales price was higher this year than last. This is great news for sellers.
This also means the first-time California buyer state tax credit is quickly running out. Over 15,000 buyers have applied for the state tax credit, which is now 80 percent claimed. If you’re thinking of buying a home, be sure to act quickly enough to take advantage of this great tax credit worth up to $10,000. Interest rates have also remained below 5 percent for the past six weeks, making it a great market for both buyers and sellers. It’s a great time for real estate in Sacramento!

I love to read. I love to watch movies. And I love to save money. With the cost of books and movies rising, these three loves rarely go together; however, I have recently found that all of these loves really culminate into one great love…a love for the library.
Not only can you borrow books (for FREE!) but you can borrow movies, television shows, even music. The online reserve system allows access to numerous library collections and, with it, almost everything is an option if you’re willing to be a little patient.
