Written by David Roberson, Esq. on . Posted in Uncategorized

AA Ventura 3Charming, cozy, diverse and, above all else, affordable, houses for sale in Ventura are in high demand. The fact that this quaint community of single family homes, townhomes, apartments, and small independent shops and restaurants is between the CalTrain railroad tracks and El Camino Real means residents accommodate some traffic noise. Over time, the urban sounds simply become part of a fabric of their lives and they and their bank accounts benefit from being open-minded.  Palo Alto remains one of the most sought-after cities in the world due to the allure of Stanford University, the high-tech companies that have formed the foundation of Silicon Valley, the cultural diversity, the year-round temperate climate, and the seemingly endless opportunities for individuals, families, and companies to make their way here – and Ventura Palo Alto is right in the middle.
