Franklin Crossing Homes in Elk Grove Last Built 2015

Real Estate Agent with Elizabeth Anne Weintraub, Broker DRE #00697006


Franklin Crossing in Elk Grove is a newer subdivision of homes, typically built between 2011 and 2015. This cluster of newer homes is just south and a hair west of one of my favorite subdivsions in Elk Grove, near Bilby and Willard Parkways. If you are taking I-5 south from Sacramento, it's about a 20-minute drive from downtown, and you'd get off the freeway at the Hood-Franklin exit.


It's a short commute past farmlands and old estates, which probably won't exist much longer. There is also a cemetery, but I imagine they'd have to leave that in the path of new construction. Some things you just don't mess with. Long-term residents' homelands though seem to be up for grabs by developers, and many people in Elk Grove are unhappy about that, which is understandable.


Remember, Elk Grove was named in 2006 the Fastest Growing City in America. You can read more about my new listing in Franklin Crossing, built in 2014, a single-story Taylor Morrison home, in my personal blog today at this link: Newer Elk Grove Home in Franklin Crossing for Sale.

I often wonder if the time would come when building would take place where cemeteries once were. Elk Grove is a desirable place to live. I have friends living there

Good morning, Elizabeth --- the appeal of newer construction along with single story living will likely draw many to the open house event on Sunday afternoon.  The home looks to be in "model" condition.

Elizabeth, looks like a few of our homes out here.   Elk Grove sounds like a great place to call HOME.

Elk Grove sounds terrific. Though changes over the years are necessary, you provide excellent information that is important for consumers, especially buyers to know. You're the best!

Kathleen Daniels It is less than an hour (in good traffic) to San Francisco from Elk Grove, and I know many people there who commute.

Michael Jacobs I imagne we'll have a very busy open house. The traffic from showings has been resulting in offers, too.
