2340 8th Street: a 4/2 bank-owned house with good sized yard described as a fixer. Price: $429,000 ($359 sq/ft).

998 Virginia Street (@ 9th) is a 3/2 bungalow with detached studio, hardwood floors and a spacious yard (the lot is 5,500 sq ft). The photos (kitchen above right) show a reasonably good-looking home so maybe it’s the location that puts the price at $549,000 ($434/sq ft).

1560 Dwight Way: a 3/1 home in move-in condition with separate garage close to central Berkeley. Price: $649,000 ($726/sq ft).

1782 Rose Street: a 2/1 Mediterranean near Gourmet Ghetto with third bedroom off master. Price: $769,000 ($634/sq ft).

2931 Linden Avenue: 3/2.5 Craftsman in “pristine” condition in The Elmwood with original architectural details and updated kitchen (above left) and baths. Price: $1,095,000 ($620/sq ft).

250 The Uplands: a 4/5.5, 5,438 sq ft “Italianate” villa on private gated half an acre with library, Bay views and separate guest suit as well as a BAHA Preservation Award. Price: $3,650,000 (671/sq ft).

On price per square foot, which is one determinant of value, you would pick 8th Street, but of course I know you will all be rushing to put your best bids on that Italianate estate.
