January/February 2019 Emeryville Real Estate Report: Market ‘Softens’, Interest Rates Dip

1 min read

January posted the lowest median list price in Emeryville in over a year at just $419,500. Numbers were a bit higher in February though with more two bedroom condos and townhomes hitting the market. Finding a one bedroom condo in Emeryville below half a million is within reach for many prospective buyers.

Overall, inventory is rising, price increases are slowing and interest rates are hovering around four percent for those that qualify. Overall sales volume is down, which indicates that buyers might be holding back which can tip the scales in their direction.

Rental Market Trends:

Zumper.com published their latest monthly rental report for the Bay Area that covers 30 cities in our region. Emeryville ranked as the fourth most expensive city to rent this month. The price of a one bedroom unit increased 0.3% to a median of $3,060, while two bedrooms increased 1.9% to $3,770.
