San Marcos Homes for Sale & Real Estate

 Although a major part of California, San Marcos comes directly under the San Diego County and is best known for housing California State University, San Marcos. However, with a population of 83,781 it has more than just students living in its midst, especially considering that it has boundaries with by Escondido to the east, Encinitas to the Southwest, Carlsbad to the west, and Vista to the northwest.

Historically, the town was the home of American Indians, who eventually left the area after being threatened by Spanish troops. They were the original settlers of the city and also gave it the name, which stems from Los Vallecitos de San Marcos (Little Valleys of Saint Mark). Through a series of inheritances, San Marcos ultimately came under the authority of Germans and Dutchmen, who settled into the area. Following a rise in population, local Americans began moving in and slowly but surely, the city began to emerge as its modern self with the aid of development from the citizens.

Businesses began booming in the area and also saw a number of early educational institutes being setup, however the real growth for San Marcos came after 1956, when the Colorado River changed its path to include the city. This led to another major business boom and eventually saw the town becoming incorporated in 1963. With such expansion in a very short period of time, it was no wonder that the whole of the United States looked in awe at San Marcos and crowned it the third fastest-growing city in the state.
