California Real Estate Homes & Condos For Sale

With the largest population of any state in the U.S., California certainly has its fair share of large cities and communities. With miles and miles of Pacific coastline and a myriad of climates and terrains to discover, California homes for rent and apartments for rent are certainly a beautiful choice. California apartments are in every city and town in the state, so they'll offer you so many different choices for the type of community you may want to live in. Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, San Jose, and Long Beach offer a great deal of variety in urban living. If you're looking for a smaller community, California certainly has plenty of those, as well. You can choose from coastal living in the north or the south, as the climate and the terrain vary greatly. The rolling hills and plains of California are situated throughout the state and both offer great differences in climate, as well, depending on their location. Desert is also a prominent fixture in southern California, as cities catering to the wealthy and luxury-seeking have popped up there, as well as towns for the outdoor experience.

California homes for rent will offer you a great deal of diversity, not only in the climate and landscape, but also in the people. California is the most diverse state as well as the most populous, so you can be sure your living experience here will have a myriad of cultural influences. California apartments for rent are located near universities and colleges, in small towns, in the trendy neighborhoods of large cities, and in affordable, family-friendly areas of many cities and towns. You'll find a great deal of community and culture in California, no matter what you find an apartment to rent.

A Little More About California

As the 3rd largest state in the Union, California geography is one of the most unique in the Nation. Within its borders, fertile valleys, majestic mountains, golden deserts, and a picturesque coastline can all be found. The heart of California contains networks of rivers, renowned lakes, agriculture and one of the richest opportunities for waterfront living in the country.

Known primarily for its Mediterranean climate, the nature of California weather is dependent on its location in the state. Certain areas, especially in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, have snow almost throughout the year, while most of the state never experiences this winter landscape. Temperatures stay relatively constant throughout the year, especially in the major cities. California is known as the state of sun, surf, and sand, and new residents will not be disappointed by this description.

As the most populous state in the nation with nearly 34 million residents, California relies on a variety of options to keep its economy stable. Tech, tourism and film industries are particularly strong in California, as is agriculture. In fact, California boasts the most productive farmland west of the Rocky Mountains, mostly due to the expansive Central Valley. With a median home price of roughly $540,000, and an assortment of job prospects, California remains one of the most popular states for relocation.
