Welcome to Lincoln
Country-style living in a vibrant small city.
Located on the outskirts of the Sacramento metropolitan area, the city of Lincoln is home to a tight-knit community that is constantly expanding and growing. As one of the fastest-growing cities in America between 2000 and 2010, it’s not difficult to believe Lincoln boasts a highly sought-after real estate market thanks to its rural character and undeniable country charm.
The city is laid-back and has long left its stagecoach years behind it and developed into a thriving community of friendly, active locals made up of retirees, commuting professionals, and families in search of a slower pace of living. The city has several master-planned communities including Twelve Bridges and Lincoln Crossings which offer convenient amenities like community pools, public parks, and access to multiple golf courses.
Moving through Lincoln, it's easy to notice property trends around the city. The historic downtown boasts many classic homes still maintaining their original architectural styles while further into the suburbs, spacious properties with custom-built houses and well-designed outdoor spaces are common. This varied real estate landscape has made Lincoln exceptionally popular among residents of all backgrounds and with a variety of tastes and preferences.
