Today's Times/Mercury News has an intriguing article in the Business section about national real estate prices here. The piece uses PropertyShark's data and places B'game at 24th nationwide as a pricey zip code. Neither the charts nor the commentary (mostly from a Palo Alto realtor named Alex Wang) note that we share 94010 with Hillsborough. That is not a minor oversight. Here is the fun part of the article
Just look at Burlingame. The median price there was $2,215,000 for 415 sales, the most transactions among the top 25 ZIP codes. Total sales volume exceeded $1.1 billion.
"Burlingame has become like the Palo Alto of the north," Wang said. "It's that next place down (from San Francisco) -- beautiful downtown, very vibrant, has good schools and a lot of local amenities, a good option for families."
