Petaluma is one of the top ten Hottest Zip Codes in the country, according to Realtor.com.
Ranking No. 6, Petaluma was one of three California cities to make the real estate industry list. With transit options, low unemployment and a median home price lower than surrounding counties and metro areas, Petaluma is “more attractive than ever.”
Realtor.com noted that Petaluma gained 4,000 jobs over last year, pointing out that many iconic companies have their headquarters here — including Calix, CamelBak, Clover Stornetta Farms, Lagunitas Brewing Company and Athleta.
Petaluma was also praised for its “old traditional downtown with small-town feel.” All of this with median home prices 8 percent lower than the county and metro area.
