Albany Real Estate Market

Like many waterfront communities in the East Bay area, the Albany housing market is both desirable and diverse, presenting home buyers with a pleasant mix of Craftsman-style houses, cottages, bungalows, and even its fair share of vintage condo buildings as well. Thanks to both Interstate 580 and the Golden Gate Fields horse racing track, you won’t find many waterfront homes and condos in Albany, but that doesn't take away from all the many highly attractive options you'll find scattered throughout town, which range from a relatively affordable condo or cottage to higher-end historic homes priced well over $1 million.

Albany, CA has developed into a thriving neighborhood of small businesses, charming bungalows, and cottages, which reflect Albany’s earlier working-class origins. Among Albany’s architectural claims to fame are the 1500 small homes built in the late 1920s and 1930s by Charles MacGregor. MacGregor specialized in building good quality, modest, affordable homes; most of which still stand today.

Albany Community Amenities

Albany California is a pleasant little East Bay city located on the eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay. Just a few miles north of the Bay Bridge, between El Cerrito and Berkeley, Albany is close to major freeways, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), and other public transportation, making commuting to San Francisco or to other East Bay communities a breeze.

Golden Gate Fields is the only commercial racetrack in the Bay Area, so as you can imagine, it’s easily the most recognizable attraction here in Albany. But along with the track, residents and home owners in town are also provided with easy access to Eastshore State Park, which sits just south of town, as well as the Albany Bulb, which is widely recognized as one of the most unique tourist attractions in all of East Bay.

Locals also enjoy waterfront parks and the unique shopping to be found along Albany’s Solano Avenue, which extends from the Berkeley Hills through Albany, and ends at San Pablo Avenue. Solano Avenue is a vibrant, pedestrian friendly boulevard filled with unique shops, restaurants, and family operated business.
