Median Home Price Up in Most Berkeley Zip Codes

As the Bay Area housing market recovers, 78 houses sold in Berkeley in October.

Median Home Price Up in Most Berkeley Zip Codes

Sales of foreclosed homes continue to drop as a percentage of overall volume as the Bay Area housing market recovers from its collapse five years ago. In November, the Bay Area recorded the most home sales for that month in six years. 

The familiar trinity of cheap money, high demand and tight supply is driving the market, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The median Bay Area sale price in November was $438,000, up 20 percent over 2011.

Foreclosure resales represented slightly more than 10 percent of the market, compared to 25 percent a year ago and 52 percent in 2009. 

Here are October sales for Berkeley.
