Single-Story Homes For Sale in the Greater Sacramento Area

The two-story home was once the epitome of the American dream. In many cities, where land was at a premium, the only option for more space was to build up, not out. For growing families, multi-story homes were constructed out of necessity.

But today, consumer demands have changed. We’re living longer, and many homeowners are choosing to age in place, making stairs difficult down the road. Huge, multi-generational families are no longer living under one roof. And most importantly, people have moved further away from urban cores, meaning there’s more land available to spread out. This is especially true in the greater Sacramento area, where new home construction is still going strong.

So, whether you have mobility issues or are just tired of lugging laundry up and down the stairs, following are some great single-story homes for sale in the greater Sacramento area.
