If you are a potential home owner and are considering the Downey residential market for the first time, or perhaps you are new to the Southern California community altogether, here is some additional information that should prove useful. The Downey properties are found in a racially diverse city where you will find languages that are spoken from across the world. The residents enjoy a lovely year-round Mediterranean climate and the home owners are approximately 40 minutes away from Downtown Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center, and a similar distance away from Angel Stadium and the Honda Center. The closest airport is found at LAX International, and you will also find regional airports in Long Beach and at John Wayne in Santa Ana. There is an excellent hospital in the immediate vicinity – PIH Health Hospital, and Downey is located within the Downey Unified School District. Law enforcement is provided to the Downey Community by the Downey Police Department, and fire services are provided by the Downey Fire Department.
If you are in the area looking at the Downey homes for sale, and have some extra time left over at the end of the day, you will find that there are all kinds of fun things to do and see in the area. There are three excellent golf courses in the area; Los Amigos, Rio Hondo and Bell Gardens golf courses and there is an excellent shopping mall for the residents to enjoy; Stonewood Center which is located at the intersection of Firestone and Lakewood Boulevards. The Downey real estate market benefits from being close to Los Angeles which is a city famed for being at the center of the nation’s film and television industry. If you travel down Interstate-five freeway, away from the Downey properties, this will connect you to the southern beach cities of South Orange County including Newport, Huntington and Laguna Beach’s – further to the south you will find Dana Point and San Clemente. If you travel north up the 5 or 710 freeways this will take you into Los Angeles, where there is something going on day and night.
