San Mateo

SAN MATEO: Small Town Meets Big City. By Geoffrey Nelson

With a population nearing 100,000, San Mateo (incorporated 1894) offers both "small town" living and a more cosmopolitan feeling in its diverse and highly scenic environment. San Mateo homeowners avail of "big city" amenities, services, and employers while still enjoying a close-knit community atmosphere offered by long-established classic neighborhoods and village-style shopping districts.

San Mateo will inspire homebuyers of all price points: from the architectural grandeur of circa-1890s San Mateo Park ($1,500,000 - $4,000,000+) to entry level homes, luxury condominium towers, and nostalgic subdivisions such as Hayward Park, Baywood, and Aragon (1920s - 1930s). For those seeking tree-lined streets, character architecture, and top-rated schools, the westside neighborhoods of Baywood, Aragon, and Homestead will be sure attractions, with a price ranging around $850,000 - $1,500,000 for Homestead, typically $1,300,000 - $2,000,000 in Aragon, and about $1,600,000 - $2,700,000 in Baywood. San Mateo, California is located on the Peninsula approximately 20 miles south of San Francisco. San Mateo is both a residential and business community serving a population of over 90,000 in an area of more than 14 square miles. San Mateo is an especially commute-friendly locale, strategically centralized along the Peninsula to easily access San Francisco, San Jose, Silicon Valley, the Coastside (Half Moon Bay), East Bay, and beyond.
