According to Jed Setzer, Redfin agent,

“Curtis Park is centrally located: close to downtown and right next to Land Park, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Sacramento. Curtis Park homes are from the same era as those in Land Park, with similar character, so there’s spillover appeal but at a shade-lower price point. The school district is highly ranked and it’s not uncommon for people who grew up there to return to raise their families. Historically, it’s been a very a stable market so it could be primed for a groundswell of interest.”

Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson provides some insight as to why neighborhoods like Curtis Park are going to be hot this year.

 “Many homebuyers have recoiled from the dramatic increase in house prices in urban centers posted over the past three years. They are now searching for more affordable places farther out. Expect the neighborhoods on this list to see high demand in 2015 as rock-bottom mortgage rates and a more lenient mortgage lending environment help make homeownership in expensive cities less costly.”
