Rent to Own Homes in Visalia, CA

Visalia, California, has some of the freshest and best local produce in all of California. The town, which has been inhabited continually since 1852, is an agricultural mecca and supports a number of grape, olive, and citrus farms, as well as countless fantastic cafes dedicated to using local ingredients. There are also renowned Californian vineyards, like those found in Terra Bella. Clearly, farm-to-table cuisine is a big part Visalia life, but so is entertainment, which this central California city is far from lacking. In addition to their historic and restored Fox Theater, they are also the hometown for the Visalia Rawhide baseball team, whose namesake stadium is a summertime staple for locals and tourists alike.

Housing in Visalia

In recent years, Visalia has been experiencing a nice little bump in the number of home sales transactions taking place. There were approximately 1,400 homes sold in both the second and third quarter of 2012, and with the median home sale price comfortably floating between $140,000 and $170,000, theres still plenty of time to move into this sunny, festive city. At 16%, Visalias annual residential turnover is low, which means its no surprise that over 74% of homes in the area are owned, rather than rented. That doesnt mean, though, you cant get a good deal on rent in this shimmering stretch of the San Joaquin Valley. Gorgeous, split-level two bedroom homes can be found in between $750 and $1,300 per month, and often come with nice furnishingsas long as youre willing to sign a one-year lease.

Weather and Climate

If youre looking for permanent sunshine, Visalia really is your place. In an average year, there arent even 30 days of measurable precipitation, and summer, spring, and fall are bright and gorgeous. Summers can get a little hot, with temperatures sometimes maxing out around 105 degrees, but for a true Californian, thats nothing a pair of shorts and a fresh-squeezed glass of lemonade cant fix. Visalias weather really is perfect for growing the fruits, among dozens of others, and many residents make their living through some occupation related to the citys thriving agricultural scene.

Local Food

The real perk to summer, in spite of all that heat, is the Visalia Farmer's Market, which runs well into the pleasantly warm month of October. The Market offers everything from dried fruits to Dairy Goddess Farmstead cheese, as well as local wines and artisanal soaps. With everything offered by the vendors, its no surprise that Visalia was named one of the best small towns in America to eat in by USA Today. Azuls Mexican Grill is known for their homemade corn tortillas, and the trendy Jack and Charlies (set up inside a former jail) is revered for their dedication to elegantly representing San Joaquins incredible produce.

Neighborhoods

So youre sold and you cant wait to movebut where to settle down? Visalia has a number of neighborhoods, and each offers its own experience, so its important to be well-versed on the citys nuances.

Downtown:Downtown is where business is done and fun is had. It is home to the Playhouse Theatre and the Visalia Convention Center, as well as a number of parks and open spaces. Like most downtown areas, it may not be the most spacious section of the city, but it certainly makes up for that with its abundance of local culture.

Beverly Glen:Nearby is the affluent neighborhood of Beverly Glen, one of the most convenient areas in Visalia, thanks to its proximity to many downtown offices and the Sequoia Freeway.

Glen Acres:Across the freeway, you find yourself in Glen Acres, which is known and loved by its residents for the incredible amount of Valley Oak Trees that line its shady, well-traveled streets.

Oval Park: Oval Park is the oldest neighborhood in Visalia. Here, residents can find the public library and the police headquarters (housed in a historic building that burned down in 1951), as well as a number of strong public schools.
