Martinez Real Estate Market

Positioned along the southern shore of the Carquinez Strait, almost where it empties into Suisun Bay, the city of Martinez, California was originally known as a gold rush and shipping boomtown. Downtown Martinez is packed with historic and well-preserved buildings and antique shops that date all the way back to the mid- to late-1800's in some cases, and its overall friendly and inviting atmosphere is hard to overlook if you're someone who happens to be looking for a new place to live. Recent population statistics have right around 36,000 people already calling Martinez home, and with plenty of big box shopping nearby, easy access to major highways, and lots of trails, parks, and other outdoor recreation in the area, there's a lot to love about the possibility of one day calling the Martinez community home.

As for housing in Martinez, single-family homes are most common, even though you'll find a few small condo communities scattered throughout town. Small ranch-style homes and split-levels are commonly listed for just under $500,000, and the few condo/townhouse options also tend to start for under that half million mark and top out right around $600,000 in most instances. The most expensive homes for sale in Martinez generally won't exceed $1.5 million, although every now and then you might see a ranch or a sprawling custom-built estate that exceeds $2 million.

Real estate in Martinez CA offers a variety of options. The downtown area features mostly older homes, built in the early 1900's, in architectural styles that include Victorian, Craftsman, and Tudor. Newer homes, some very exclusive (and correspondingly, more expensive), can be found in the southern end of Martinez. Creekside Oaks Estates, a gated community of private estates near Lafayette, is a fine example of premier Martinez real estate.

Martinez Community Amenities

Outsiders often view Martinez as nothing more than a refinery town. In reality, Martinez is a vibrant city with an interesting history and lots to do. The Martinez Regional Shoreline runs along the north side of the city and features a marina for boating and fishing, hiking trails, and picnic areas. To the south of Martinez, in the hills bordering the Alhambra Valley, is the Briones Regional Park; the perfect place for hiking, jogging, and horseback riding — or simply sitting back and enjoying nature.

Downtown Martinez bustles with activity throughout the year. Popular events include a farmers market, car shows, the annual John Muir Summer Festival, the Italian Street Painting Festival, the July 4 Downtown Parade and Celebration, and the biannual Peddlers Faire. Within walking distance of the downtown excitement are quiet tree-lined streets with historic older homes and bungalows. An interesting new downtown community is the Villa Del Sol, a LEED-certified development of Spanish influenced architecture.
