East County Living
Sitting at the edge of the East Bay and Contra Costa County is an area known affectionately as “East County.” The East County region enjoys mild winters and warm summers with our daily dose of the ever refreshing Delta breeze.
East County has a vibe and lifestyle all to its own. Surrounded by the San Joaquin Delta and sitting in the shadow of Mt Diablo, East County is a place where the sense of community is strong, and the cost of living is affordable by Bay Area standards. Away from the never - ending grind of the East Bay’s core, you see people have the time and awareness to slow life down a touch and take a deep breath around here.
With booming towns like Brentwood, Oakley, Pittsburg, Antioch and Discovery Bay new opportunities and changes are everywhere. The new construction of homes keeps our inventory a bit more healthy than some other areas of the Bay. You can easily find a home from $450,000 to about $550,000 which is a sweet spot for many first time home buyers. New places for people to live also means we have a growing community. We have incredible new schools, grass and splash pad equipped parks as well as shopping and entertainment all throughout the area for you to explore and enjoy. There is honestly something here for everyone.
The area is drawing in on what seems like a daily basis new cool businesses, shopping, grocery stores and hip places to eat and hang out. We have a thriving local farming scene bringing us a weekly Farmers Market and fresh food for our community. Are you looking for something to do for the night or some shopping maybe? Go check out the Streets of Brentwood for some yummy dinner and drink options or to catch the latest hit movie. We also have some beautiful golf courses and hiking trails in the area too if that is your thing.
Once settled in, most newcomers come to find out the real gem of East County living is, the Delta. Back your boat into the Delta water over at Orwood, Holland Tract or maybe Discovery Bay Marina for a day on the Delta. From cruising with the fam to enjoying world class fishing with a pal or wakeboarding and water skiing will be sure to leave a huge smile on your face and a bit of sun on your skin. We hear wakesurfing is even starting to catch on a bit out here.
The East County vibe is strong and growing with people coming to our area from all over the greater Bay Area. As they look for a better more balanced life, they bring a piece of where they have come from. With each transplant, we learn from each other and celebrate all the rich experiences that will shape East County for decades to come.
Home seekers will enjoy the many different neighborhoods to choose from here, as well as the variety of houses, condos and townhomes available. Depending on where you settle, you could be right downtown, next to a popular community park or near top-rated schools.
We hope that our website's community information will help you to choose between the many wonderful areas; each has a lot to offer the home buyer.
