Our local real estate sales for homes sold in Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley have been performing well on a year over year basis. Trophy areas such as Piedmont, Montclair, Rockridge, North Berkeley, Solano Avenue etc. have fared exceptionally well. Those “trophy” areas seem to have done so well due their proximity to shopping, dining and social environments. In the recent 2 years there seems to be a contraction back to “walk-to” environments. Many of today’s Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley buyers appreciate a home that is in reasonable proximity to something to do and are enthusiastically buying homes that allow for a less car dependent living experience.
Every home and every neighborhood has its own sets of benefits and disadvantages. For example, a “community feel” to one buyer may come off as “crowded” to another buyer. If you’d like me to show you some of the many terrific communities and homes for sale in Oakland, Piedmont and Berkeley I welcome you to get in touch.
Have a great day.
