I do love showing off Sun City Roseville CA homes for sale – both regular and the ones with the gorgeous views. The views are mostly of one of the two beautiful golf courses but there are also some delightful ones of the various greenbelt areas (of which some really are green and some are brown much of the year – but both have their beauties AND their cute critters!).
While chatting with a friend, she came up with an intriguing question. How much of a premium should you expect to pay for one of the lovely golf homes for sale in Sun City Roseville California? I told her that in the current “super seller's market” that we are in, I didn't think that made as much of a specific difference as as it may have previously. But I could easily be wrong and I decided to take a look.
This is not a super in-depth look. Prices have been changing so much, so quickly, it just wouldn't be that accurate. So this is just a quick look, at this specific season of time, to get a basic idea.
Some Facts and Statistics for Golf Homes and Regular Sun City Roseville Homes For Sale
These are just some bare-boned facts and stats about homes sold in Sun City Roseville in the past few months. I have them grouped by model name and then listed under the model by date sold, closed price, square feet, view (golf or greenbelt) or no view. I checked on upgraded counters but overall that didn't seem to play into it much. Most had the upgrades and it didn't seem to matter even if not. There was a difference in size of garage but, again, it didn't seem like that made a major difference. As you can see, this is bare bones (but if you'd like more details or have questions, just email me your questions at KayeSwainRE@gmail.com 😀)
Yosemite 1869 square feet
- 641,500 10/12/21 golf view
- 657,000 8/2/21 golf view
- 770,000 8/31/21 golf view
- 559,000 10/28/21 no view
- 559,000 9/30/21 no view
- 670,000 8/2/21. no view
The view homes were almost $100,000 over the September and October sale BUT the last house without a view sold for higher than 2 of the golf view homes in this popular floor plan – one of which closed in the same week.
Rosetree 1334 square feet
- 581,000 10/5/21 golf view
- 492,500 8/27/21 “greenbelt” (albeit mostly brown) view
- 487,000 9/22/21 no view
- 481,000 9/2/21 no view
- 520,000. 7/22/21 no view
The 7/22 house with no view sold for more than the greenbelt home – I have noticed that the greenbelt homes may not go quite as high, even in “normal” markets. Still that was quite a difference. The other two no view homes were about $100,000 difference! Huge!
Parkland 1638 square feet
- 576,000 9/30/21 golf view
- 651,000. 6/17/21 golf view
- 615,000 8/6/21 No view
- 600,000. 6/2/21 No view
- 590,000 5/7/21 No view
All 3 with no view sold for more than the September view home. But the June view home (when the market was at its hottest) beat all the other prices.
Shasta 1547 square feet
(This particular model gave original buyers the option to have a formal dining room OR a den or full bedroom – which is more than a minor difference so I did add that info)
- 565,000 9/17/21 Golf view (2 bedroom with dining room)
- 600,000 7/8/21 Golf view (2 bedroom with den)
- 540,000 7/9/21 No view (3 bedroom)
- 555,000 7/28/21 No view (3 bedroom)
Both of the view homes beat the no view homes – even the one with only 2 bedrooms. BUT no $100,000 differences with this smaller model.
Hearthwood 2,362 square feet
- 775,000 9/13/21 Golf view
- 801,000 8/13/21 golf view
- 720,000 6/15/21 golf view
- 730,000 8/4/21 no view
- 735,000 7/2/21 no view
The September and August view homes both beat the no view homes by $40,000 – 50,000 BUT the June view home – during the very hot season, was less than both of the no view homes.
Grove. 1,752 square feet
- 618,000 8/21/21 Golf view
- 595,000 7/15/21 No view
- 610,000 6/29/21 No view
- 570,000 6/4/21 No view
A popular but rarer floor plan – the one golf view beat all the no views but only by about $8000-$50,000 difference.

The very popular Delta Breeze had one sell in May with no view that was within 50,000 of the lost golf view. The rest were $100,000 or more apart.
Sun City Roseville California Homes For Sale-Summing Up
I'm sure if I could spend several hours digging deeper I'd find some logical reasons for some of these prices in these lovely Sun City Roseville CA Homes For Sale. But having been out there dealing with it, I can also assure you that for many – there may not be a logical reason – other than, the buyers really wanted a certain house and knew that others were often making offers on the same houses. They deemed that price a good one for their needs, they knew they could afford it, and they offered it. And we saw the prices in Roseville – both in Sun City Roseville and throughout the Roseville Rocklin area – going up faster than the norm. And when that is the primary basis, I find that it makes it very difficult to state with any certainty that a view home will run a certain amount over a non-view home. What do you think? I'd love to hear. AND if you have any questions or would like more details, just email me at KayeSwainRE@gmail.com
