4 Reasons NorCal is a Top Ranked Place to Live

4 Reasons NorCal is a Top Ranked Place to Live

Jun 08 2017

NorCal, short for “Northern California,” is one of the most exciting and promising places to live along the California Coastline. Whether you’re aiming for the quiet life in a rural area of the vast and still wild Golden State, or the bustle of one of one of NorCal’s booming metropolises, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful regions on Earth.

 

Ideal cities for residents looking to migrate to NorCal include Clovis, Folsom, Dublin, Ridgecrest, Rocklin, Orinda, El Dorado Hills, Roseville, Granite Bay, and Walnut Creek. Here are four reasons why:

 

 

1. Hottest Real Estate Market in the Country

Amazingly, if California were its own country, it would have the eighth biggest economy in the world. That’s one reason why this Spring NorCal ranked 8th out of the 20 hottest real estate markets in the United States. For sale houses majority of these areas is at record lows are being offered at prices just below market value. And according to a Realtor.com data analysis of these markets, “…homes there are likely to be a good investment.”

 

2. Strong Economy

The prosperity of the NorCal region as well its cultural centers and nightlife are just a few of the reasons why San Francisco has been named America’s Best City by Bloomberg Businessweek. Its strong economy has well above average median incomes and low unemployment rate help boast a thriving business economy. Those were both key factors in earning it the accolade.

 

Human resources consulting firm Mercer has also ranked the Northern California tech metro #1 in the U.S. for quality of life. And just last month the New York Times ranked San Francisco the third best city in the country for millennials to reside.

 

 

3. Fantastic Weather

All of NorCal is well known for its characteristic balmy weather. The climate there is best described as Mediterranean. It ranges from warm to hot summers, perfect for lounging on your patio or hosting your friends and family for Sunday BBQ’s. During winter, it’s usually cool all over, creating an opportunity for roasting smores over the fire pit or cuddling up by the fireplace for hot cocoa.

 

When San Francisco was named America’s Best City, its amazing weather and gorgeous outdoor scenery were highly regarded. From garden fields and zen temples at Golden Gate Park, to the bustling fish markets at Fisherman’s Warf- San Fran offers plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy year-round.

 

Outside of San Francisco, California’s capital city of Sacramento has been named one of America’s “coolest” cities. It was also ranked highly as having the best climate in California. In review of Sacramento’s weather, it was noted how its climate “makes luxurious treats such as wine, olives, and pomegranates.”

 

4. Wine Country

For those that might not be vino experts, NorCal is wine country. Two out of U.S. News and World Report’s top three best wine vacations in the world are in Northern California. Sonoma Valley boasts an impressive landscape and collection of vineyards. Napa Valley is also wonderfully scenic and offers fine California wine made from over 50 diverse types of grapes. Spend the weekend visiting a winery, purchase your favorites from the tasting session and invite your neighbors over the following weekend to enjoy a private tasting in the comfort of your outdoor living space.

 

 

With all of the opportunity and scenery that NorCal has to offer, if you’re planning a move to Northern California, or want to make improvements to your NorCal backyard ask the pros at System Pavers for more information on how to make the most of your space.
