Living in Arcadia

Even during the 2010 recession, when foreclosures were high, new homes were still being built in the City of Arcadia. Property values were on the rise, higher than any other city in Los Angeles County. Most new homes built range from 3,000 to 6,000 square feet, and one is still able to find those in excess of 10,000 square feet. A strong resale value of luxury homes keeps the city growing. Arcadia still sees a demand for new construction, both in homes and in retail facilities.
