Santee Real Estate

    Santee is located in eastern San Diego County, about 20 miles (and 20 minutes) from the coast. It was incorporated in 1980, which means that it’s currently in its 27th year as a municipality. With a population of over 53,000 (as of 2005), Santee is the 11th largest of San Diego’s 18 cities. Santee is still growing and, since nearly half of its land is undeveloped, Santee promises to continue expanding for years to come, as does Santee real estate.

    This continuing growth has attracted many large and small businesses to the Santee area as well. A brand new mall was recently built, which brings shopping and fine dining to the area. Wal-Mart, Costco, 24-Hour Fitness, and Target are also relatively recent additions to the community. Summertime concerts are held at the Trolley center amphitheater and completion of the 52 and 125 freeways will connect the 67 freeway and allow many residents an easier route into and out of Santee.
