Homes for Sale in Northwest Bakersfield
When you have spent some time investigating the homes in Bakersfield, chances are you may decide that the Northwest section is your favorite area. You won't be alone, as this is the most popular area in Bakersfield. Its convenience to shopping, parks, and some of the best schools is a big reason for this. It has been experiencing a lot of growth, both residential and commercial. Whether you are a native resident or you're relocating to Bakersfield, the Northwest is the section you will want to consider first.
Bakersfield's Northwestern area borders on the west to Highway 5, to the south by the Kern River, to the east by Hwy 99, and ends in the north at Seventh Standard Rd. The homes in this part of town are relatively new. At one time, it was a more rural area, and only had a handful of established farming communities such as Greenacres, Rosedale and Fruitvale . The majority of growth in this area started after the 1990's. And when it grew, it really grew!
Custom home builders including Barbara Smith, Gaskill, David Turner, John Dovichi, Dave Packer, Froelich, and John Balfanz have all contributed to the many fine communities in the Northwest. While home prices vary greatly, this is probably not the part of Bakersfield that an inexpensive starter home will be easy to find. What you will find are upscale, move-up homes, some fine private homes located on the Riverlakes Golf Course with their own man-made lake, and finally the most exclusive luxury homes of Stonebrook Estates, Iron Oak Estates, and Legacy Estates.
Rarely we will see a fourplex or rental home for sale, although they are in high demand and will command the highest rentals due to a red-hot rental market and the desirability of the area. If you find such a property in the Bakersfield MLS, it will usually go quickly and at a premium price point. If you're in the market for income producing property in the Northwest area, you need to let us know and we will be on the lookout so you won't miss an opportunity.
