Where are the largest homes in Berkeley?
Carol told my cousing Mimi that there’s nothing I love more than being in a new city in another country with my photographer’s vest filled with maps and guidebook.
I’m particularly interested in Art Deco Architecture, so whereve we travel, I create databases with the addresses of interesting places, and then map them. Here’s a map I created for Washington DC, Baltimore & Philadelphia; another for Los Angeles.
I knew I could use the same technology to give a sense of what the Berkeley Real Estate Market is like.
First and foremost – this is not meant to show Berkeley’s entire housing stock – they are created using data only from homes sold through MLS from 2007 through Jun 2011.
Data is from East Bay Regional/Berkeley MLS and doesn’t include all home sales. I also didn’t filter it for duplication (many homes have been sold more than once in that time frame) … but since it represents over 2,000 sales, I thought it gave a good representative sampling.
Since prices change from year to year, and this data spans several years, I didn’t create a price map.
