Obviously named for its richness of Oak Trees, Thousand Oaks, spans to almost 56 square miles.

This high demand for property in Thousand Oaks not only suggests growth in the community, it greatly increases the price of homes. As more and more people decide to move to the area, the demand for property improves. Knowing this, sellers can keep raising prices and still attract those that are willing to pay.

To help keep Thousand Oaks a place of luxury with luscious landscapes, the City Council elected to stop further new purchases of open land within the city limits. A few current constructions will continue to take place and finish around 2010. After these constructions are finished, a contractor must spend $100,000 just so that he can get an appeal to the city of Thousand Oaks. Once he has done that, the citizens of Thousand Oaks can elect whether or not they approve of his contract. This decision from the City Council to stop further purchases of open land will also increase prices of current property for sale.
