Nevada County Real Estate

Beginning at the foothills east of Sacramento and stretching to the peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains at the state line, Nevada County covers nearly 1,000 square miles with a population just under 100,000.

It is also a great destination for buyers from those larger metropolitan areas who want to retire and purchase a home in a quiet community that offers more bang for their buck than properties in densely populated cities. Homes in Nevada County include a wide variety of single-family homes, luxury estates, and secluded, acreage properties. The steep hills and valleys of the foothills provide a number of Nevada County properties with breathtaking views of the Sacramento Valley and the snow-capped Sierra Nevada Mountains.
