Our real estate market has undergone dramatic changes over the past couple of decades. Looking back at 20 years of single family home sales in Berkeley and North Oakland, we found several interesting stories in the data.

First, while we saw variation in appreciation rates over time, primarily due to the “Great Recession,” our housing market performed well. Homes appreciated 6% per year, on average, over the last two decades.

Second, the number of homes sold per year on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) varied notably over time as a result of the economic environment. Not surprisingly, the lowest sales per year were in 2008 and 2009.

The highest number of sales was in 2021, likely a combination of low-interest rates and households electing to make different lifestyle decisions as a result of Covid-19. There was also a high number of sales per year in 2003 and 2004 as the local economy recovered from the “dot-com bust.”

(Piedmont)

The highest number of sales on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for Piedmont was 153 in 2002, likely accompanying the recovery from the “dot-com bust” in 2000. Not surprisingly, the lowest number of total sales was 75 in 2008. The next highest number of sales was 148 in 2021, likely a combination of a low-interest rate environment and households electing to make different lifestyle decisions as a result of Covid-19.
