Where else in California can you own your home for $400k or less? The third largest city in the state, Fresno is one of the last areas for affordable housing within hours of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Disneyland. With huge demand for short-term rentals due to an influx of travel nurses at several major regional hospitals, Fresno is an investor's dream as well as a culturally diverse place to raise a family, with homes costing less than half (on average) when compared to coastal communities.
