Gearing up for next Sunday’s game? If you’re looking for the perfect spot to cheer on your favorite team, then look no further. Check out some of our top picks below!
For those of you in Carmichael that want to kick back and watch the game with a refreshing drink and some all-American grub, check out Palm Street Pub & Grill — a neighborhood-friendly spot that offers a full-service bar, delicious burgers, wings, and fries. Palm Street also has three pool tables and darts. What more could you ask for?
Thinking of trying a new spot downtown? Pay a visit to Public House Downtown on 16th and L Streets. With 60 beers on tap, 23 flat screens, and two outdoor patios—not to mention mouth-watering burgers and an American-inspired menu—this restaurant is an ideal place for your Sunday hangout.
If you find yourself in Folsom, stop by FLB where you won’t miss a play of your favorite team with 26 flat screens, HD game audio, and all of the major sports packages. They also have killer wraps and salads to keep you fueled for the game.
Last but certainly not least, Bar 101 located in the heart of downtown Roseville is another winning spot to watch your team. With the Sunday Ticket, 33 beers on tap, and 13 HD TVs (and one monster 10 ft screen), you can grab a seat as early as 9:30 and enjoy a hearty breakfast while catching your favorite team.
Summer is almost over, which means the temperatures are about to cool off. And while there’s no guarantee, it looks like the housing market may cool along with it — at least slightly.
According to a recent article from realtor.com, many experts expect that, while the fall buying season will be competitive, it won’t be quite as frenzied as the spring or summer.
One indicator supporting that projection is the pace of price growth. According to the article, the national median home price hit $385,000 the week ending August 14 (the highest on record). That price represented an 8.2 percent increase year over year—a definite increase in price, but significantly less than the 17.2 percent increase from April 2020 to April 2021. Inventory is also starting to increase (according to data from the National Association of REALTORS®,1.32 million homes were available for sale in July 2021—a 7.3 increase from June)—and the more inventory is available in the fall, the easier the home search process will be for buyers.
According to the latest available stats from the Sacramento Association of Realtors, while the active listing inventory decreased 4.7 percent from July to August of 2021, this is reflected in last month’s increase of 23.5 percent from June to July. This means that we are still seeing an increase in active listing inventory, which is up 23.3 percent compared to July 2020. The average days on market are also increasing slightly — up from 12 days to 15 days from the initial listing of the home to the day it goes pending.
