I'm doing something a bit different. There are LOTS of changes coming to our Roseville Sacramento area! Both for business and for real estate. So I thought I'd do a Roseville Sacramento business AND real estate update today! To be followed closely with my regular Sunday weekly real estate updates. 😀 Check these out…
LINCOLN'S PICKLE BALL CHANGES TO COME – Great news for fellow pickle ball fans who live in Lincoln. Per Gold Country Media, “A resolution was adopted at Tuesday’s City Council meeting to convert the concrete slab at McBean Park into SIX permanent pickle ball courts.” All the pickle ball players who attended were quite happy! Of course, Sun City Lincoln residents already have pickle ball courts but those are for residents only. So now MORE Lincoln residents can have fun and stay healthier playing this great game.
CITRUS HEIGHTS CHANGES
CITRUS HEIGHTS MALL CHANGES TO COME – “Sunrise Tomorrow,” adopted late last year, envisions redeveloping the aging Sunrise Mall into a “main street” retail and residential concept along the mall's current main footprint, with uses such as apartments, office space, senior housing and hotels on outlying parts of the property.” Maybe even a business hotel. Interesting article at ABC10 about it. And that's not all!
Add to that the interesting info that Ethan Conrad has bought the closed Sears store at Sunrise Mall in Citrus Heights. (He also bought the Florin Towne Centre Sears and another location elsewhere!) It should be interesting to watch what happens to both! You can read more about it at the SacBee.
And check out this interesting article from Yahoo about the Sears bankruptcy and how few Sears there are any more. There are some which surprised me, but not many! Very sad! That was always a favorite for my senior parents and myself.
According to the Sacramento Business Journal, Cafe & Grill has replaced Perko's Cafe Grill at 6215 Sunrise Blvd. in Citrus Heights.
If you've been wondering what's up with the closed Strikes Unlimited in Rocklin – they formally sold out to a national bowling alley operator Bowlero, per their Facebook page.
TWO SAD CHANGES
Noshery in Roseville has closed which many have been so sad to hear BUT there is good news for this as well – The owners stated in the announcement that the space will now become part of the Randy Peters Catering and Event Center, which is adjacent to the restaurant and music venue space. The business — which provides professional catering, event planning and concession services — has been serving the greater Sacramento Valley and surrounding foothill communities for over 40 years, according to its website.
The addition of the restaurant and venue space will increase the amount of gathering rooms at the Randy Peters Catering and Event Center for private events, bringing its total number of event rooms to four.
“The planning has already begun, and we're excited to bring some fun events to the community,” the owners wrote.
AND if you have any of the Noshery gift cards – they shared that they may be redeemed for full value through Randy Peters Catering and Event Center for any of their catering services, bar services, individual meals, holiday gatherings, Thanksgiving family meals, Christmas family meals, pick-up, or delivery. Contact them at 916-726-2339 and talk with any of their sales managers and they will assist you with your food, beverage, and service needs. (From Sacramento Business Journal AND Noshery Facebook page)
Another closing that my local grandkids are too young to mourn but give them a couple years and they may. (Tho hopefully it will have a new owner by then.) Raging Waters has ended their lease at Cal Expo water park and it will take effect before the upcoming 2023 summer season. Per ABC10, “if you purchased a season pass for the 2023 season or made a deposit for a group trip, you’re asked to email RWSac_General@PalaceEntertainment.com with your purchase or deposit confirmation. The locations in Los Angeles and San Jose will still be operating as normal in 2023.”
KUDOS to both Noshery and Raging Waters at making sure they fulfill their responsibilities for prepaid items! Great example to many!
AREA REAL ESTATE CONTINUES TO CHANGE
My weekly updates continue to show home prices dropping regularly and rarely going up (total opposite from last year) and I'm really looking forward to working on this month's deep dive into last month's market stats after reading some articles from one of our top appraisers, Ryan Lundquist.
Among other things, he points out that there is frustrating news as prices drop in response to the higher interest rates. BUT many prices are still up compared to last year.
In other words – as I've been saying, prices are dropping, and likely will continue to drop. BUT there are still buyers. If you are in a good place, I would recommend staying put.
Realistically, though, some people will need to move and for those, it can still be a good time IF you are willing to price it realistically based on what is happening today rather than what happened over the last two years. And even then, there's an excellent chance you will still get a great price – tho not what you might have hoped for last year.
If you or someone you know does need to sell and would like realistic and practical information about the market, I'd love to help. My goal is to help YOU do what is best for YOU always! My clients and their needs are always my top priorities and have been for over eight years, as I've enjoyed working in real estate in the Roseville area. 😊

P.S. Here's a fun home search for you! Have you ever thought about living near one of the great streets that decorates extensively for Christmas. Think about it – if you live close, you can just walk right over and enjoy it! Or maybe you'd like to live ON one of those streets and decorate with the best of them. Here's a search for any home for sale in Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Citrus Heights, Antelope, Carmichael, and Fair Oaks that might give you that opportunity. In fact, there is one right now – be sure to check it out quickly, it might sell fast, even in this changed market. (If no houses are showing, that just means it sold and nothing else is currently available that fits the very specific search I did, which wouldn't be unusual.) 🎄😀
