Arroyo Grande Homes For Sale
Arroyo Grande is a favorite spot for tourism on the Central Coast and is located between the beaches of Pismo and Grover on the west and Lake Lopez on the east. Arroyo Grande may be best known for it's historic district with quaint shops, art dealers, restaurants and fanciful older homes and buildings.
The city hosts a variety of fun events during the year including the famous Strawberry Festival held each Memorial Day Weekend, the Arroyo Grande Car show on the last Saturday in July and the Summer Concert Series. As Mayor Tony Ferrara noted,
"We are nestled between the Pacific Ocean, beautiful foothills, lakes, and world-class wineries, with fine homes, fine schools, a thriving agricultural and tourism-based economy, and the friendliest people you'll find anywhere."
Drive around the area and you find Arroyo Grande is epitome of what is the California Central Coast, rolling oak studded hills, green farmlands, rows of wine grapes, the ubiquitous winery and near perfect climate!
Having a population of around 18,000 Arroyo Grande can hardly be called the big city yet still has some of the biggest charm on the Central Coast. Many farms and ranches are a part of the community and inspire a very rural feel and an old style quality of life that is highly sought after, making Arroyo Grande one of the more exclusive cities to buy a home in, a bargain compared to the beach communities of Pismo, Avila and Morro Bay none the less.
Keeping that in mind, condos are an affordable option for those who find Arroyo Grande irresistible. For the single person or eclectic couple there are 1 bedroom condos available and one recently sold for only $67,000, a fantastic value almost anywhere. For the luxury buyer a 3 bedroom condo can be found for under $350,000. An average 2 bedroom unit currently sells in the mid $100's. What a great vacation or second home, yes!
As mentioned earlier, Arroyo Grande is a very desirable destination and combine that with homes on acreage included in the statistics it is no wonder that price of homes sold recently is above average.
