Albany, California -
Winkler Real Estate Group, a realtor company based in Albany, CA, has recently put together a survey that highlights the best suburbs of the city of San Francisco. While there are a lot of suburbs of San Francisco, which is the financial, commercial, and cultural center of Northern California, the suburbs they have focused on are Bay Area destinations outside the city that are endowed with special appeal. These places offer privacy, open spaces, or simply provide a way to avoid the busy city life.
The Bay Area is considered to be one of the best places in California for raising a family. It has many family-friendly neighborhoods with lots of good schools and many parks and children-friendly places. In general, the Bay Area has an emphasis on education, diverse thinking, and multiculturalism.
Meanwhile, the area around the city of San Francisco has extreme microclimates, although overall, it has Mediterranean temperatures with warm fall temperatures and mild, wet winters. While it would be difficult to generalize, one can safely say that the suburbs of San Francisco all enjoy a mild climate, which means comfortable living both indoors and outdoors.
Daniel Winkler, founder of Winkler Real Estate Group, says, “Overall, the best suburban area for you and your family will depend on your personal preferences and priorities. Your property, whether an apartment or house, should be a smart real estate investment. It might be helpful to spend some time researching these different areas. Visit each of these suburban gems in-person with an expert real estate agent to get a sense of which one might be the best fit for you. Our vast experience with homeowners, investors, buyers and tenants allows us to offer the best service and the right amount of guidance.”
The cost of living in the best suburbs of San Francisco can vary by a wide range, especially with the particular location and the specific property. In general, Bay Area costs have been noted to be high. The median home price in some of the upscale suburbs can be in the millions, although there are also some affordable options.
Singled out in what are considered to be the best suburbs of San Francisco in the blog post, particularly as places to live outside of San Francisco, are Palo Alto, Cupertino, San Ramon, Lafayette, and Orinda.
At Palo Alto, homes are very expensive, and the residents are well-educated. The median home price is $2.5 million, and the crime rate is 8 percent less than the national average. At Cupertino, the crime rate is 43 percent lower than the national average while the cost of living is 64 percent higher than the average in California, and the median home price was $1.8 million in 2022. At San Ramon, residents can enjoy the huge number of hiking trails and panoramic sights. Families have many activities to do, the crime rate is 58 percent less than the national average, and the median home price was $723,000.
At Lafayette, while it is only 30 minutes to the city, the place looks like nature’s paradise with a 6000-acre park nearby. It has a high cost of living, low crime rate, and a median home price of just below one million dollars in 2022. At Orinda, there are a lot of green space all around, and it is only eight miles from the University of California in Berkeley and 11 minutes from the beach. It has a high cost of living, a very low crime rate, and a median home price of $987,000.
