Moving Real Estate Forward

Living in Danville


Safety is Danville’s

Danville gives its residents very little reason to walk its streets in fear no matter the time of day. For violent crimes alone, Danville only registered at a mere 0.5 per 1,000 people, according to figures from

This distinction, coupled with a bevy of good schools in and around its periphery, is among the most compelling reasons why people buy real estate in Danville and raise their children here.

Town, not city

Danville became an officially incorporated municipality of California that refers to itself as a town in 1982. Its relatively small size (around 47 square kilometers or 18.15 square miles) and the desire of its residents and local leaders to retain their community’s quaint, small-town vibe are the apparent reasons behind this move. So, it’s not the City of Danville but the TOWN of Danville.


Wealth like no other

Households in Danville are probably among the most affluent, not just in California but in the whole country. Each household here earns a median household income of $160,808 which makes the national median family income of almost $80,000 pale in comparison.

It’s not difficult to see why. The town’s wealth stems from a tech-based economy, buoyed by Silicon Valley to its south and Oakland to its east. Most of its residents are also employed in top-level positions in their respective companies, meaning they can afford the finer things in life.

Top schools

Like many other East Bay towns and cities, Danville is served by the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. As mentioned earlier, its highly esteemed academic background and the top-ranked schools under it are among the biggest draws among buyers searching for homes for sale in Danville CA.


Shop and dine

Residents don’t need to leave Danville, CA for a robust retail and dining experience.

Two Danville shopping destinations of note are the Danville Livery Shopping Center and Blackhawk Plaza. The Livery is more of a collection of stores than an actual mall with merchants selling mostly locally made merchandise. Meanwhile, Blackhawk Plaza is a strip mall that boasts a cinema, restaurants, and retail stores.

As for food spots, The Peasant & The Pear is worth the visit for its classic “peasant cuisine.” For hearty, well-prepared meals in Downtown Danville, Bridges will not disappoint.

A top-tier real
estate market

With a median sold home price at around $2.3 million plus a scarcity of housing stock and a huge demand, Danville’s real estate market has clearly become a seller’s market. Competition for properties is tight, whether the property in contention is a single-family home or a condo unit.
