Let's play Sacramento Real Estate Monopoly!

When the game of Monopoly was invented in 1903 as a way to demonstrate the dynamic of wealth creation in the new industrial United States, no one anticipated it would become America's iconic board game, still popular more than a century later. 

In fact, Monopoly has gone through countless revisions, reiterations and translations to different languages, but it's still essentially a contest in amassing wealth through real estate investment. 

So what better way to revisit Monopoly than sync it with our modern Sacramento real estate market. We took the liberty of converting the well-known Boardwalk, Park Place, railroads, utilities, etc. to actual Sacramento neighborhoods based on current real estate values.

Please note that this is just an illustration for fun, and shouldn't be construed as accurate data or a proper characterization of any of these communities, good or bad. We used current home sale values for the last couple months, but these numbers could easily change and create a new order in the coming months. All neighborhoods have pros and cons and no matter if you're starting out buying your first home in modest "Mediterranean Avenue" or work your way up to Boardwalk, real estate ownership is one of the only games you win just by playing.
