The rural side of California

Ranching is a very popular activity in rural California, and has been going on in the area for century. The practice originated in the United States, in the 16th century, when the Spanish Conquistadors invaded the Americas, followed by settlers, who brought their cattle and cattle-raising techniques with them. As these settlers moved west, they gradually they brought cattle breeds developed on the east and adapted their management to the drier lands of the west, using special Spanish cattle-breeding techniques.

Ranching can be a good source of income for people content with rural life, and all kinds of livestock ranging from cattle to buffalo, bison to emu can be raised on a ranch. At present, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) maintains all of America’s ranches. If the land or a part of it is cultivable, it may also be used for farming. It is rather simple to gain knowledge about ranches and their working from various media like the Internet, but it is more difficult to find a person who will provide you with unbiased, first-hand information regarding
real estate in California.

Real estate in Alviso

Located north of San Jose at the mouth of the Guadalupe River and at the end of Coyote Creek, is the small historical neighbourhood of Alviso. Named after Ignacio Alviso, the son of one of the original members of the infamous Anza expedition, Alviso was first inhabited by early settlers in the 17th century. The city itself was incorporated on March 4, 1852, and finally merged with the City of San Jose on March 12, 1968, after a referendum decided in favour of merging. However, the place name ‘Alviso’ is still in use by the U.S. Postal Service, for delivering mail to the locality.

At first, the town of Alviso was a major transportation hub for California, as it was an important seaport. However, increased use of railway in the Santa Clara Valley, led to a decline in its importance. This trend was further accentuated when the growth of the Silicon Valley began to take centre-stage in
California’s developmental patterns. Frequent floods in the early 1980s, and later due to the El Nino current caused the destruction of a number of homes and businesses.

However, Alviso remains a great residential neighbourhood. If you are interested in purchasing real estate in Alviso,
contact Dale Warfel. Dale has been a realtor with Keller Williams Realty for many years, and has expertise in real estate in Almaden Valley, Blossom Valley, Morgan Hill, Monte Sereno, Los Gatos, Palo Alto, Saratoga, among others. So if you are looking for homes for sale in the communities surrounding the Silicon Valley call him at 408 624 6202 to make an appointment.

Built on 152 acres of land, originally belonging to the Agnews Developmental Center and owned by the State of California, Rivermark will have all the facilities of a fully-fledged township. Current residents of the area included professionals and families, making it one of the most upscale neighbourhoods in Santa Clara.

Loosely speaking, the town will run from the Montague Expressway, Lafayette St. Hope Dr, to the Guadalupe River, however officially, the community will consisted of the
housing developments of The Arbors by Centex, The Park by Centex, The Promenade by Lennar, The Greens by Lennar, The Landings by Shea, and The Glen also by Shea. The difference between the two definitions of the location is that the developments of Mission Gardens, Miraval, and 550 Moreland are included in the looser definition, but officially not included.

The new township comprises retail space, parks, elementary school, apartments, condominiums, townhouses, and houses. All in all, Rivermark promises to be a very interesting real estate development. If interested in acquiring real estate properties in Rivermark, contact
