Did you know that if you live outside of a designated BART zone that you will not only pay less for your home but you will likely miss the feeding frenzy of multiple offers?
The average home in the area around the North Berkeley BART station is selling for 130% over list price and in some cases as high as 170%. For a better value with more square feet, consider Kensington. From Kensington’s Arlington Avenue, you can pick up the AC Transit bus to San Francisco for a 45 min to an hour commute for $4.25 each way.
