The Bay Area is one of the priciest housing markets in the country and for good reason. Have you seen what an amazing place this is to live?
With a current median sales price of $865,000 homes in diverse Santa Cruz County are more than double the national price, though a relative basement bargain compared to neighboring counties in the Bay Area.
Yet with our expansive ocean and mountain views this county still has its over-the-top beach homes and mountain estates.
