Bell Gardens, CA Real Estate
Bell Gardens is one of the larger cities in Los Angeles, with approximately 40,000 residents. Settled continuously since prehistoric times, the land has proved popular and habitable because of the mild weather, excellent farmland, and abundance of local vegetation. Serving primarily as a cattle plantation in the 1800s, the wartime demands of the early 20th century brought an industrial boom to the area. This led to the area's general conversion to a suburban town of single-family dwellings, both houses and apartments, with an emphasis on renting instead of owning. As such, most of the real estate agents in Bell Gardens work on ensuring that clients can find a good place to stay at an affordable rate. The few houses which go on sale in the area are affordable and moderately sized, emphasizing the working-class nature of the neighborhood.

Demographic History Bell Gardens, CA
Because of its history as a farming community, Bell Gardens has been an immigrant town for most of its history. Beginning with Latino immigrants brought in from Mexico to till the soil for Spanish landlords, Bell Gardens was subsequently settled by various immigrant groups through the years, most notably a large number of Japanese farmers who came into the area during the 20s and 30s. In recent years, the city has returned to its Latino roots, emphasizing farming culture and serving as a permanent home for many local farmers and agricultural workers. It is also a predominantly young city, with the average age being well below 25, something which is largely attributed to the large number of families in the city.
