Placer County in Northern California is one of the state’s fastest growing areas.  It is in the heart of the “Gold Country” with many communities that sprang up during that time.  Residents enjoy looking for antiques and enjoying boutiques and fine dining throughout these “Old Towns”.  In contrast, Placer County is home to the largest regional shopping mall in the area, the Roseville Galleria.

There are many outdoor recreation opportunities here.  Water sports on Folsom Lake and other lakes, fishing in the American River, hiking and horseback riding, snow skiing in Tahoe to name just a few.

Sun City Roseville, Sun City Lincoln Hills and Springfield Whitney Oaks are communities for the active 55 and over home buyer.  Historical homes in the Old Towns, new homes on large parcels of property, homes in subdivisions, condos, and vacant land are all for sale here.
