A comfortable drive from the heart of the Silicon Valley a short haul to San Francisco, San Mateo is all about location, location, location. Perhaps this is why it is a great city to move to. Getting some great local info is usually not included in your moving quote, but we thought you should enjoy your new city before you even come. She’s charming and bustling, crowded yet contemporary, lively yet somehow avoids the polluted skies of her larger sister to the North. She is the most populous city of the peninsula and acts as a sort of gatekeeper to the great industrial cities starting in Burlingame. You’d be lucky to buy a home here if you frequently travel, as the San Francisco International Airport is just a hop, skip, and a jump from any place in San Mateo. She’s also home to SAMTrans, one of the largest transit agencies in California that is ready to connect you to BART, Caltrain, VTA, and other transit lines that link to the rest of California.

Business wise, San Mateo is home to Sony, Franklin Templeton, Go Pro and Netsuite. She is as close to a sweet spot as any real estate investor can get with home values. Zillow puts the average at $1,421,800. And 2019 being a buyer’s market according to the same site, the time to snatch your own sweet spot is prime. Most local moving companies don’t understand the fluctuations in the housing market, but we can certainly tell you that San Mateo is a place that is base of many high-value transactions in the real estate world.
As far as things to do, go see a Warriors game. It’s just a hop across the San Mateo bridge, which is the longest bridge in California and the 25th largest in the entire world (by length). That alone is enough to go fill up on gas and get you going. A smooth shot down 101 to San Jose, about a 35 minute drive and a 20 minute drive in San Francisco, San Mateo is a truly a city to access the city. We hope you enjoy your move to San Mateo as much as we enjoy doing the moving. Until next time, dear friends.
