Eastvale real estate, which was originally predominantly agricultural and dairy farms until the late 1990s, began to provide affordable homes for sale for those who wanted to suburbanize from the neighboring heavily commercialized Los Angeles and Orange Counties. At one point, during the housing bubble, highly inflated prices were reached, but by 2009 prices had fallen drastically.
Eastvale, however, has recuperated due to the fact that the Los Angeles County line is only eight miles northwest of Eastvale and the Orange County line is only five miles southwest, making Eastvale popular with commuters.
Located in northwestern Riverside County, the Inland Empire region of Southern California, with the San Gabriel Mountains in the background, the city’s homes for sale and other Eastvale real estate offer many amenities to its residents.
Officially becoming a city on October 1, 2010 with a population of 53,668 at that time, Eastvale has a density of 4,700 square miles. The city is well protected by its Proposition 13 (People's Initiative to Limit Property Taxation), which requires a two-thirds majority in both legislative houses for any increases in state tax rates or amounts of collected revenue including income tax rates.
Prior to the incorporation of Eastvale, mail was addressed "Corona, California" since that post office was the closest one that could handle the volume from the new construction in the Eastvale area.
Having been incorporated in 1896, Corona’s population in 2010 was 152,374, and it is estimated that in 2014 it grew to 161,486. Its ranking is third in Riverside County, 33rd in California, and 154th in the United States.
In the 1950s, the town called itself the Lemon Capital of the World. A museum described below is on the old Foothill Lemon Ranch, which was active when the small town was one of the largest producers of lemons in the world.
Although small, it is filled with well-displayed historical memorabilia and history and is a fun museum for the kids of all ages to visit with a section of children's books, clothing of the 1920s, a replica of the era’s company store, a local art colony collection, and a model train exhibit.
