And Why Homeownership is An Excellent Investment
Experts agree that, across the United States, the market advantage is swinging back in favor of buyers. But how does the Bay Area market stack up against nationwide trends? Here are four important factors that make our area unique:
Many of the world’s most revolutionary tech companies are based in the Bay Area, which has created a wealth of professional opportunities. If you have the education and/or experience to work for a world-renowned company such as Google, Facebook, or Youtube, then the advantages of living near Silicon Valley are clear. But the robust economy fueled by the tech industry is far more diverse than that. From finance to food and drink — from medicine to aerospace — the professional opportunities abound.
The strikingly beautiful landscape of the Bay Area helps attract millions of tourists to the region every year. And locals, too, are enamored of the unforgettable views and nearby parks and reserves. However, the landscape of the Bay Area impacts the region in more ways than just aesthetically. The coast, mountains, and natural reserves all ensure that the Bay Area housing market will never be flooded — all but ensuring homeowners that their properties will continue rising in value.
The Bay Area also contains many historical landmarks and neighborhoods that are protected by local and state legislation. This aids the region’s robust tourism industry and keeps neighborhoods beautiful — two additional considerations that make homeownership in cities such as Santa Clara, San Mateo, and Palo Alto particularly attractive.
Last but certainly not least, the Bay Area is renowned for its rich and lively culture, attracting some of the world’s top talent and leading minds. From music, to cuisine, to festivals, to museums, to architecture, and so much more — there’s hardly a better place to be in the US or around the world.
