Grass Valley, CA – Homes For Sale

April 7th, 2022

Once a booming mining town during the gold rush, Grass Valley has maintained its identity with its past as one of the premier historic towns in our country. The Grass Valley Downtown Association (GVDA) has worked with local merchants of California to create a vibrant downtown, while at the same time keeping the history alive, as tourism is a mainstay for the local economy. Downtown and adjacent areas are where you will find older homes that have been restored, or are yet to be restored, and in various subdivisions not so close to the tourism areas, you will find newer homes.

If you’re thinking of buying a home in Grass Valley, there are a few things you might want to consider before doing so:

First, as mentioned earlier, there are both new and old homes in this quaint little town. In a nut shell, newer homes may cost more up front, but are less work to maintain, where an older “fixer upper” may be attractive because of a bargain price, but a tremendous amount of work to maintain (or upgrade.)

Secondly, this is a small town with charm, not a thriving metropolis or suburb of Sacramento. The big cities have a lot of amenities that will not be found an hour into the foothills of the Sierra’s. People move to Grass Valley because IT IS a quaint place to live. If you are looking for all that a large city has to offer, this may warrant another visit before committing to a purchase.

Finally, its important to stop and think about why you want to live in Grass Valley in the first place. Where does this chapter fit into your life? Grass Valley has quite a few retired people living there because it is a slower paced life style and well suited for the elderly. Far too often, people make a large scale decision (in this case the purchase of a house) with a small scale understanding as to why. Will you commute for the next twenty years? Start a business in the downtown area? Teach school there? These are just a few questions to ask yourself to help you decide if this is the right move “right now” in your life. Its quite likely, that the little town will be there at a later date, should you wait until a more appropriate time.
