With welcoming neighbors, a central location, mild climate and access to fine schools, among other features, Modesto is a wonderful place to call home. No matter what stage in life, young families, professionals, empty nesters and retirees have all found a place within Modesto.
A broad range of home styles and prices are available throughout the city, with its blend of modest single-family homes, custom-built residences, manufactured homes and sprawling estates. Friendly, tree-lined subdivisions and beautiful gated communities feature well-maintained homes and manicured lawns, displaying the area’s true pride of ownership. Smaller living spaces are also available through apartment complexes, condominiums and townhome developments. And those not in the market to own are supplied ample opportunities for rental.
In 2009, the average price for homes was $144,000, with rentals for two- and three-bedroom houses averaging from $750 to $1,150 per month. Apartments with one to two bedrooms rent for $500 to $800.
