Palo Alto is the “Biggest Gainer”as Housing Market Starts to Pick Up in Bay Area

January 28th, 2010 by Altaire Townhomes


If you are still waiting for the “bottom” to hit, it may have already happened.

Per this recent article on the online Wall Street Journal, homes in the Bay Area are starting to show signs of a tentative recovery.  According to DataQuick, a La Jolla-based data provider for the housing industry, cities closer to the Coast are recovering better than inland properties.

“We appear to be in the early stages of a fragile recovery,” said Andrew LePage, a DataQuick analyst.  Coastal communities dominated the the increase in housing prices, accounting for 24 of the 29 regions that posted positive price gains.

Palo Alto led the way in price appreciation.  The median home prices of Palo Alto more than doubled from a year ago to $1.1 million.  According to the article, Palo Alto’s price per square foot soared 98.7% last year and area real-estate agents say homes sales are brisk.

This is good news for the peninsula as a whole, and Palo Alto in particular.  So if you are still on the fence, you may want to revisit the idea of owning a new home in an economically stable area in a great neighborhood with excellent schools for your family.
