And let’s not forget, unlike so many houses which are priced not to sell, this house is priced to sell. Go get it today!

Palo Alto- America’s #2 Top College Sports Town

In Depth: Top College Sports Towns – Forbes.com
In Depth: Top College Sports Towns

2. Palo Alto, Calif.

Stanford University

Those who follow the Director’s Cup know Stanford always seems to finish at the top of the table, and last year was no exception. A family-size home costs big bucks, however–a cool $1.67 million, to be exact. Though with venture capital and technology firms around Stanford bringing in big money, the median earner in Palo Alto makes $119,046, the most of any college town on our list. Schools ranked first, and the crime rate was the second lowest. If it weren’t for the 42nd ranking in housing affordability, living on the Farm would have ranked first overall.

Thanks to MV_Bound for bringing this up! Just another example of what makes the Real Bay Area so incredibly special. Just think about all the people you know who moved here because of the amazing sports! Oh… those crazy tailgaters… woot!

And as we all know, the median earner likely makes $238,092 (2x) given that the median number is skewed by Prop 13ers.
