midtown-sub1Midtown is home to a lot of Sacramento’s young working singles, many of whom are fresh out of college, and a large contingent of lobbyists and politicians who want to live close to the Capitol. It is a bike and pedestrian-friendly neighborhood with no shortage of restaurants, art galleries, historical buildings and nightlife options. People who live in midtown enjoy being a part of the city’s center, and most have a sincere connection to the arts community and local business network.

The architecture in Midtown can only be described as Victorian, Victorian, Victorian. The vibrant colors and designs of this style give Midtown its adorable look and feel, while the newer loft developments add a touch of “urban hipster” to the vibe. More than half of the residences in Midtown are multi-family dwellings, from duplexes to triplexes and beyond.

Midtown is popular with real estate investors, as there is no shortage of eager tenants seeking to get into the neighborhood, and homeowners that like the idea of occupying just one unit of a larger building, while collecting rental income. Many of the properties in Midtown are also getting older and in need of repair, making it a hot destination for flippers and those with a genuine passion for
property restoration.
