Common Questions about Atherton Real Estate

Atherton real estate agents will attest to the fact that home prices in the community are higher than in other parts of the already costly Bay Area. With that said, there’s a 0.22% appreciation rate for homes here, making real estate in the Atherton area a slightly better investment than those in other parts of California.

 

Furthermore, top Atherton real estate agents like Rebecca will be quick to point out that these homes don’t come without value. Even the smallest home sizes range between 5,000 and 10,000 square feet, and lot sizes are also larger on average, providing plenty of space for big families to spread out. 

Atherton real estate agents sell homes that encompass a wide range of prices, but the fact that Neighborhood Scout quotes an average Atherton home price of $7,571,414  suggests that the market generally consists of loftier investments. By way of comparison, the average home cost across the entire state of California is $733,500, as reported by Best Places. 

 

Although home prices are generally higher, Atherton’s close proximity to Silicon Valley makes the community desirable, especially for the commute: Many employees at Facebook, Apple, and other notable tech companies plant their roots in neighborhoods here.

Though originally, West Atherton served as a retreat location for San Francisco homeowners who needed a brief and luxurious getaway, today, the gated community now serves as a home to those who want security and luxury combined with a convenient location, making it one of the most prestigious neighborhoods throughout all of California.

 

Consider touring homes in Lloyden Park if you want to find properties with historical charm. Although updated through the years, the neighborhood initially consisted of just 86 single-family properties throughout the 1920s. In 1939, some renovated properties gained recognition as “Homes of the Future” from the Golden Gate International Exposition. 

 

Lindenwood is another historical Atherton district that initially gained recognition after James C. Flood, known for mining vast amounts of silver from the Comstock Lode, built his 600-acre estate there. Today, Lindenwood still features some of the fountains and statuary erected in honor of James Flood.

 

More communities to consider in buying Atherton real estate include Atherton Oaks and West of the Alameda.
