Martinez Real Estate & Martinez Homes For Sale
Martinez, California – Overview
There is more to Martinez than meets the eye. The main attraction here is probably the historic downtown with its well preserved old buildings, interesting shops and restaurants etc., but it also has easy access to the 680 freeway, Highway 4, and even an Amtrak station. Add to that the fact that it sits right on the San Pablo Bay and you have to wonder why real estate prices are so much more affordable than many nearby cities.
And speaking of Martinez real estate, there really is a very wide-ranging choice here. Just like many other East Bay cities you will find condos and nineteen-seveties and eighties homes in profusion, but Martinez has a longer history than many of these cities, so you will also find a lot of older homes going back to Victorian times, and many are relatively affordable.
