It’s officially summer and several developments around town are in full swing. One project we finally have an update on is the Harvest Subdivision. This development is being built south/west of the Empire Ranch Golf Club and is officially moving forward after ground water issues caused construction delays. The project includes 116 homes, six of which will be models and include two product lines. Officials expect construction on the model homes will begin in October and will open to the public in early 2018.

Harvest Subdivision homes will range from 2400 to 3957 square feet and vary from 3 to 5 bedrooms and 3 to 5.5 bathrooms. Of the six model homes, only one will be single story, the other five will be two stories. Officials also say prices of the new homes have not been determined yet. Lewis Group is the developer of the new subdivision and CalAtlantic Homes is the builder.

In other news, new businesses anticipated to open in Folsom this summer include Five Guys Burgers, which will be located at the Broadstone Marketplace Shopping Center. Also opening later this summer is Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar at the Palladio, which is now scheduled to open mid-September.

HAPPY 2017! We hope you had a wonderful holiday and a happy new year!

As we move into 2017, what’s in store for the housing market? Realtor.com recently predicted the greater Sacramento area will be the nation’s fourth hottest housing market this year. This is exciting news for both buyers and sellers in our region! Phoenix, Los Angeles and Boston topped the list. Still, Realtor.com experts say all the top markets have relatively affordable rental prices, low unemployment, large populations of millennials and baby boomers, as well as a high number of listing views on its site. The Sacramento market is projected to have a 7.2 percent price growth and a 4.9 percent sales growth this year. The median home price is estimated to be $420,000. I look forward to seeing how this year's housing market plays out!

Turning to Folsom news, more businesses continue to make their way into the area. Another new restaurant set to open in Folsom this spring is Broderick Roadhouse. The locally owned eatery is known for its critically acclaimed burgers and scratch cooking in West Sacramento. Their newest location will open next to the new Mikuni in the Folsom Pointe center at East Bidwell Street just off Highway 50.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! It’s hard to believe it’s almost time to celebrate the new year. Overall, 2016 has been one of the best years for the housing market in nearly a decade, especially in Folsom.

With the amount of economic growth in the greater Sacramento area, we expect this trend to continue into 2017!

So what else is coming to Folsom? If you’ve driven on Highway 50 lately, you’ve probably noticed a large development being built near Costco. That project will soon be Life Time Athletic, set to open in early 2017.

Many of us are looking forward to the future interchange at Empire Ranch Road & US-50, but how much longer will we have to wait? City of Folsom officials say this project is still in the works, which involves extending Empire Ranch Road south to US-50 down to White Rock Road. The expansion will eventually happen, but not for several years. Officials say the rate of development will dictate when the project will be complete, which may not be for another 10 years or so.    

However, there is one expansion project nearby expected to begin within the next few years…the extension of Iron Point Road to Saratoga Way in El Dorado Hills. This addition will nicely connect the two areas and make the Folsom to EDH drive much quicker for many residents

Turning to developments in Empire Ranch. A new project called the 'Harvest Subdivision’ is expected to begin construction soon. The plan includes 116 homes and will be located south/west of the Empire Ranch Golf Club.
