Have you ever heard of a “bloomburb?” What does this mean?
All you have to do to understand this new real estate term is look at the thriving little town of Santa Clarita, 30 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.
With around 200,000 people, Santa Clarita is not one of Los Angeles’ bigger communities, but is one that is growing quickly. As a top destination in the LA metro area, Santa Clarita is seeing its homes scooped up on the market, and getting a lot of interest from folks moving into the area, as well as current residents.
Traditional Santa Clarita Landmarks
In Santa Clarita, you have Six Flags and the College of the Canyons. You have local businesses that everybody knows by name, and nice quiet residential streets where people keep up properties well. Then you also have a boom in new business, and demand for local housing that is putting Santa Clarita on the map (in bigger font.)
Santa Clarita is well served by Highway five. It’s easy to travel north to Castaic, or down to the San Fernando Valley. In fact, many people see Santa Clarita as a little haven nestled above San Fernando, where the Valley has already transformed into a grid of solid suburbia. If you live in Chatsworth or Van Nuys or Reseda (or any of those endless suburbs tied together by the valley’s gridwork), you might be thinking about getting away to a nice little spot like Santa Clarita.
Yes, Santa Clarita is booming, and that’s why people call it a “bloomburb.”
A “bloomburb” is a suburb that’s experiencing rapid growth and expansion. Typically it gets harder to find plots of land to develop in the local area. These communities are hot real estate markets!
