Single family homes in Emeryville are a very desired commodity. In October, Emeryville saw two sales of single family homes which is rarity. 5855 Vallejo Street listed for $749,000 and sold for $950,000 within 13 days, receiving five offers. 1027 47thSt (shown above in the featured image) was listed for $995,000 and sold for $1,305,000 within 12 days, receiving seven offers.

Not all of the listings sold fast. A studio at 6400 Christie Avenue sold after 156 days on market and still went 7% over asking price.

Even though many listings sell over asking, it stands out that four listings in October sold below asking price.

Seven  of these listings have been on the market for over than 50 days.

About The Author

Born and raised in Germany, I moved to Emeryville (Hollis Corridor) in 2012 to escape the bad weather of San Francisco. Living on the greenbelt in one of Emeryville’s ‘painted ladies’, I take advantage of the walkability of the neighborhood and am known to stop dog owners to have lengthy petting sessions with their pooches. After a successful IT career and being burned by the stock market, I invested heavily in real estate. The transition to become a realtor seemed natural. I love helping buyers and sellers yield optimal results. Just as in IT, my goal is to stay in budget, scope and time and to leave my clients happy.
