Capitola, CA is a small city in Santa Cruz County of about 2 square miles and a population of 10,500, which probably triples in the summer months with all the visitors.  Capitola is a picturesque beach town with a European feel and look.  There are some great events in the fall like the Capitola Art & Wine Festival  and the Begonia Festival.  Homes in Capitola range from small beach homes built early last century as summer cabins to large, modern ocean view homes.  Home prices in Capitola can also vary widely as there are multi-million dollar homes and property that sells for a more modest price.  Let's take a look at the median home prices over the past year of 2009.
