There have already been some huge upsets in the NCCA Basketball Tournament’s first few rounds, but there’s nothing upsetting about living in Ventura, especially when you buy a new home at The Farm, the area’s most popular new community! In honor of March Madness, we’ve been running down the top 64 reasons to buy a home in Ventura to coincide with the 64 teams who made the cut. Here is the second group of 16 (You can see the first batch here):
- The nightlife—Yes, there is one! Head Downtown and see for yourself!
- The schools—The Ventura Unified School District gets high marks from Niche, adding to the reasons why families are choosing to buy a home in Ventura. Added Livability: “One K-5 program teaches kids English, Spanish and Mandarin.
