Tracy California Real Estate and Homes

Tracy is a growing community that is centrally located in the San Joaquin Central Valley in California. It was founded in 1878 as a small railroad town, but over the last decade, affordable housing and family atmosphere has raised a new interest in the Area. Tracy is just 60 miles east of San Francisco, 60 miles south of Sacramento. Although it remains a prosperous agricultural center, its location and accessibility attracts new business and employment opportunities each year.

Strategically located at the center of the expanding city, Downtown Tracy is ideally situated to be the focused commercial/retail center for the greater Tracy area. There are numerous retailers, restaurants, and service businesses from legal to beauty. With nearly 45% of Downtown businesses being service-related, a built-in consumer base of employees has emerged, contributing to the area's high foot traffic. In addition to the large number of employees in the area, Tracy sponsors numerous traffic building events throughout the year to promote its Downtown district. Events such as the weekly Farmers' Market and the annual Dry Bean Festival attract thousands of people to the area, benefiting the Downtown merchants.

From humble beginnings, Tracy has continued to grow and develop with the addition of new industries, the development of highly productive irrigated farming, and the building of homes, schools, a hospital, businesses, and churches. Lodges, service clubs, and other community organizations have been formed to serve the town and its residents.

As Tracy continues its population growth, new industries have located here to provide new employment opportunities. Development of new commercial activity is being spurred by the opening of the Tracy Outlet Center in the fall of 1994 and the opening of West Valley Mall in the fall of 1995. The Tracy Auto Plaza is now open with five dealerships and more on its way. Improvements to downtown Tracy are also being inaugurated through new parking facilities, a newly adopted streetscape plan and a cultural arts facility in the works. With the addition of new industries, the development of highly productive irrigated farming, and the building of homes, schools, a hospital, businesses, and churches. Lodges, service clubs, and other community organizations have been formed to serve the town and its residents.

In recent years, more and more Tracy residents have jobs in the Bay Area, commuting to and from work on the extensive system of interstate freeways developed in the 1960s and 1970s. The newcomers have joined long time residents in creating a new, larger Tracy... but one that is still a town with all the elements of a complete community. That's how Tracy was started in 1878 and the way it continues growing today.

Bank Reo's in Tracy.  A Bank Repo or REO is real estate owned by the bank, and many investors consider an REO property to be money just waiting to happen.

An REO is different from a foreclosure property in that the bank has already tried to sell it at a foreclosure auction and has had no luck getting bids. Because the property was not bid on, the bank then became the owner of the property. Naturally, the bank does not want to keep the REO any longer than possible, and this makes it a great opportunity for an investor. Clean REO's priced at the market in good areas are receiving multiple offers over the asking price in just a few days.
