This chart depicts statistics for median home prices in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. Median home prices for additional California counties can also be found on the CAR website. This data is a reflection of a general year-to-year trend based on an analysis of limited inventory. This is not an automatic indication of the depreciation of your individual home. Our area contains many unique geographic pockets and real estate is still acting in a hyper local manner. To get a comparative market analysis that reflects the true value of your Berkeley, Albany, Kensington, El Cerrito, Richmond, Oakland, Piedmont, Emeryville, Lamorinda or Alameda home contact one of Berkeley Hills Realty’s experienced agents.

Median home prices contained in this chart were generated from DataQuick Information Systems.The price statistics are derived from all types of home sales — new and existing, condos and single-family. Movements in sales prices should not be interpreted as changes in the cost of a standard home. Median prices can be influenced by changes in cost, as well as changes in the characteristics and size of homes sold. Due to the low sales volume in some cities or areas, median price changes may exhibit unusual fluctuation.
