Moreno Valley Homes for Sale

Riverside County’s Moreno Valley, California is a young community and one of the largest in the county. Part of what is known as the “Inland Empire”, the most populated areas directly southeast of Los Angeles, growth came slowly to Moreno Valley at first. The area struggled with having an adequate water supply and at one point settlers had to leave, finding themselves short on water, and thus, agriculture. Once public water programs were in place, Moreno Valley began to flourish due to its location, affordability and economy. Today, Moreno Valley enjoys a rich community that seems to be ever-growing.
