Why live in Downey California?

Downey can be the perfect place to live to be centrally located in the hub of Southern California activities, but away from inflated real estate prices.

Downey covers an area of 12.5 miles and boasts a population of 110,000. 1997 building records show that 60% of total dwellings are single-family homes. Surrounding communities are Cerritos, Lakewood and Long Beach.

“It is close to everything…freeways, Long Beach, L.A. 20 minutes from everything without the million dollar price tag”, says Downey resident, Realtor, MLO and Vice President of Todays Realty Group and Loan Solutions Joshua Glaz.

Downey is situated near several major freeways. (click here for city map) It is so convenient to take advantage of all the sporting events and recreational, cultural, and business resources Southern California has to offer. World famous Orange County, home to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, California Adventure and  wonderful beaches, is only about 5 miles away.  Downtown Los Angeles is less than 15 miles away. And the mountain resorts can be reached in about one hour.

“Downey is a great place. It is a family friendly city.”  says Dijana Arbaugh, real estate agent and former Downey resident.

Within Downey, all the parks and many recreational facilities are operated by the city.  Rio Hondo Golf Course is one of these, and is "One of the top places to play in Southern California"  as ranked by Golf Digest. There are numerous cultural arts venues, and thousands of businesses and services.  There is never a lack of something to do in or around Downey!

Downey is a great place! I like to go that direction when I'm trying to escape the summer heat in the desert.
