Santa Cruz Homes for Sale Under $300,000

SANTA CRUZ HOMES FOR SALE UNDER $300,000 - INEXPENSIVE REAL ESTATE (For Santa Cruz!)

Time was a few years ago if a someone called me and said they wanted to find a Santa Cruz home for sale under $300,000 I would not have been able to help them - there simply were no single family homes priced under $300,000.

With the adjustment in the Real Estate market, there are now homes for sale in Santa Cruz under $300,000.  For many people this is a much more affordable and realistic price to spend on a home without feeling stressed or overextending yourself.  Go here to see a current list of Santa Cruz homes for sale under $300,000

 

santa cruz home under 300000


Currently (as of 2/14/12) there are 75 homes for sale in Santa Cruz County priced under $300,000.  By far the majority of these homes for sale under $300,000 are located in the Watsonville or San Lorenzo Valley areas.  If you are looking to be in more central areas of Santa Cruz, Capitola, Aptos, Soquel then finding a home priced under $300,000 is going to be tough.  Santa Cruz Condos and Capitola Condos however are very affordable now and many are priced under $300,000

For those wanting to buy a home under $300,000 in Santa Cruz County, the San Lorenzo Valley and Watsonville areas are going to be your best bet.  You can find a nice 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in these areas at a great price.

Of the 75 homes for sale priced under $300,000 many are REOs or Foreclosures and Short Sales.  I have a lot of experience helping clients buy short sales and foreclosures, the process can be a lot easier with an experienced Realtor helping you along.  Read my related article: Buying a Bank Owned home in Santa Cruz
