10 Million-Dollar Homes In The Bay Area

The price of housing is going up everywhere. In the Bay Area, it is even more extreme. The median home value in the Bay Area was about $1.3 million in October 2021, according to Zillow. Meanwhile, the national median home value that month was about $300,000. The Bay Area consists of nine counties. Out of those, the three central cities are San Francisco, Oakland, and San Jose.

Purchasing a small condo in the Bay Area will cost around $1.2 million, while a single-family home starts at around $1.6 million (via Bekins). In today's market, a million-dollar home is the baseline for an average house. You'll need much more than one million for a luxurious home in the Bay Area. The NBC Bay Area news explained that the reason housing costs are going up is that there is a limited market. There's a decline in the housing inventory because homeowners are choosing to rent out their properties instead of selling them.
