Temecula, CA Homes & Real Estate - Properties for sale

Temecula is a city in southwestern Riverside County. The city is a popular tourist stop because of the city's many attractions. These include wine country with over 28 wineries. Also, Old Town Temecula with many restaurants and shops. Other attractions include the Temecula Valley International Film Festival, championship golf courses, the balloon and wine festival, and the Promenade Mall. In addition to tourism, the educational, healthcare, leisure, professional, finance, plus retail sectors all contribute to the city's economy. 

Real estate in Temecula is reasonably priced and considered to be a bargain compared to Orange County prices. In addition to condos, town homes, and single-family homes, the area includes properties on very large lots. Also, ranches with fruit trees, raw land, and horse properties. The region is very popular with first time home buyers, rental property investors, and luxury home buyers. Also, retirees, plus buyers who are looking for a ranch, real estate, or large acreage at an affordable price. In addition to equestrian zoned homes for sale, the city has many world-class thoroughbred breeding ranches. Most of these can be found along De Portola Rd. This is one of the few areas where you can find ranches of 30 acres or more for sale at a reasonable price. The city has good employment, but many residents commute to San Diego or Orange County for work. The 15 freeway provides easy access to these areas. Overall, the city enjoys a warm, Mediterranean climate. Above the city, the gated community of De Luz is on the Santa Rosa plateau with a much cooler climate.
