Murrieta Homes for Sale

Murrieta is nestled between the I-215 and the I-15 in the southwestern portion of Riverside County, California. Murrieta was mostly farmland and meadows for shepherding until the late 1800s when a small town was built alongside the Southern California Railroad. While the train ran the town was often visited by tourists who wanted to visit the local hot springs. The railroad stopped running in 1935 and thus, the small town slowly died and returned to a small farming town.

Murrieta didn’t see much growth until Interstate 15 was built in 1980, which gave the town a higher rate of traffic and thus, housing developments began to form and the town's population started to rise. Murrieta is now one of the fastest growing towns in all of Riverside County and has a population of 114,985. While the population has risen, the town is commonly known as a “commuter town” and many residents work outside of the city and travel to neighboring cities such as Temecula for extracurricular and shopping needs.

Murrieta Schools

Murrieta is a part of the Murrieta Valley Unified School District which is home to eleven elementary schools, four middle schools and three high schools. As the town's population continues to rise, there are three new schools that will be opening their doors to students in the coming years to avoid overcrowding problems at any of the campuses. What was once the Murrieta Hot Springs Resort is now Calvary Chapel Bible College, and while this is the town’s only college, Mt. San Jacinto College, University of California, Riverside, Azusa Pacific University Satellite Campus,  as well as University of Phoenix learning centers are all within 20 minutes from Murrieta.

Things to do

While Murrieta is mainly a residential town, it is also home to three golf courses, one of which is Bear Creek Golf & Country Club where both Ronald Reagan dn Gerald Ford took a swing. In addition to golf, Murrieta also has many youth sports programs ranging from football to street hockey. One of the locals favorite attractions is the Mulligan Family Fun Center where you can enjoy a large array of attractions such as go kart racing, arcade games, and laser tag. Temecula is a neighboring town of Murrieta and together the two towns host an event known as “Rod Run,” a classic car show that features hundreds of classic and refurbished cars.

Real Estate

Murrieta has a large range of real estate options available, ranging from 1 bedroom condos, manufactured homes and large single-family homes. Many of Murrieta’s homes have been built in the last 20 years due to the recent population boom. 1-2 bedroom condos and manufactured homes can be purchased in the low to mid $200,000 range whereas 3-5 bedroom single-family homes range from $450,000-$700,000. Manufactured homes in Murrieta will require an additional land lease or “space rent” in addition to the mortgage as well as potential HOA dues. HOA’s are implemented on nearly all of the newer homes in Murrieta as most are a part of housing development and thus amenities are offered. Murrieta is also home to astounding ranches and villas. With features like your own private vineyard, there are many homes within Murrieta that range from the high 1 million to 6 million, however, the average priced home remains at $495,000 to live within the town's limits.
