Explore the Berkeley Real Estate Market

The Berkeley real estate market includes one of the most coveted zip codes in the state, so property values tend to be a bit higher in contrast to other cities and communities in the East Bay. At the most affordable end of the market, you'll find mid-century condos and cottages from the 1920s. These types of homes offer great walking scores, as they're often close to popular streets like Telegraph Avenue and the University of California campus. Condos in Berkeley in this price range offer the perfect mix of comfort and peace, but still have quick access to all of the happenings in the city. Condo units offer well-appointed floorplans that average around 800 square feet, with one or two bedrooms and bathrooms. Patios, balconies, and sunrooms are a nice extension of floor plans. Although these units are over a couple of decades, they feature pleasant upgrades to suit the modern buyer. Amenities include covered parking, libraries, social rooms, and enhanced security features. Different condo options are also available above the median price range, offering bigger floorplans and styles including trendy lofts.

Typical Berkeley single-family homes offer a variety of styles and sizes, including one and two-level builds, often with a basement. Most of the single-family homes before they hit the luxury market are turn-of-the-century bungalow style properties. These homes have been fully renovated, while others are brimming with house-flipping potential.

At a glance, Berkeley houses feature charming gardens that are fully fenced. Backyards are surprisingly spacious and offer an oasis with patios, decks, quaint gardens, and some with spools. Interiors are cozy with hardwood floors, crown moldings, wainscoting, and majestic fireplaces. Floorplans average about 1,500 square feet of open concept living space, accommodating two to three bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchens are well appointed and have usually been upgraded with stainless steel appliances, chic backsplashes, fresh tiles, and granite countertops.

At the high end of the Berkeley real estate market, homebuyers are met with a fine mix of historic estates and ultra-contemporary homes that are typically found perched on Berkeley Hills and Claremont Hills. These homes offer sweeping views of the Bay Area, Marin, and downtown Berkeley and range from 3,800 to 12,000 square feet. Berkeley is home to very successful and eccentric contemporaries, so you’ll be sure to come across some iconic and cutting-edge homes. If you’ve dreamed of owning a piece of architectural history, you’ll find homes that were built by esteemed architects such as Wright. Exotic interiors include imported marble and stonework, rare wood, Venetian plaster, and fixtures from a bygone era. Other more modern dwellings feature elevators, pools, and oversized decks with glass railing, perfect for savoring all of the views. One-of-a-kind custom villas boast Eden style terraced gardens with stunning water features, and exotic fruit trees from around the world.

Life in Berkeley

Berkeley has it all. It’s been a home and mecca for artisans, philosophers, scholars, revolutionaries, agriculturists, and more for years, which has created a colorful culture and a world-famous ethos.

Tilden Regional Park is one of the biggest green spaces in the city with over 2,000 acres of parkland nestled between Berkeley Hills and San Pablo Ridge. Visitors get to enjoy swimming at the park’s Lake Anza, walk through the Botanical Garden, take a ride around the carousel, and a fun trip around the park on the steam train. You might even come across wildlife as Tilden Park is a preserve for natural beauty.

Berkeley has a beautiful waterfront in the westernmost portion of the city and is great for those who have a boat as the marina is fully-fitted for 1100 berths and will accommodate boats up to 16 ft to 84 feet in length. A few paths for walking and cycling is a great way to spend the afternoon, then taking a pit stop at one of the waterfront restaurants along the way.

Strolling through the pedestrian-friendly city of Berkeley is a delight. Telegraph Avenue is a historic four-block part of town packed with bookstores, cafes, organic grocery stores, unique clothing boutiques, street vendors, and renowned gourmet restaurants like the La Bateau Ivre and Kiraku.
