Welcome to Roseville
Shop until you drop in this dynamic suburb city with quiet cul-de-sacs and lively commercial districts.
As the largest city in Placer County, Roseville acts as the veritable pulse of the area and is widely regarded as a top-tier shopping destination. The city’s size enables it to remain relatively affordable in comparison to nearby communities, and in particular, has higher quality amenities at lower prices than much of the Bay Area.
In the mid-19th century, Roseville was established as a railroad town. The city was incorporated in 1909 and has since flourished as a friendly, bustling town now intersected by I-80. Its position makes Roseville a prime spot for commuters into Sacramento, and its plethora of high-quality, excellently priced neighborhoods invite a welcoming feel into its atmosphere.
The price points of residential real estate in Roseville are varied enough to appeal to a number of needs, and the city is saturated with new-build single-family homes. Contemporary designs mix with the occasional red roofs of Mediterranean abodes or the sleek lines of stately Colonials. Many newer homes are custom-designed, making them perfect for those hoping for a unique style.
