Hot Pick Home: 'Best Improvements' in the Bay Area - December 7, 2020

Every week our data and real estate experts seek out the best homes on the market in the Bay Area. They've even developed a criteria ranking system based on a multitude of factors to aid in their hunt - and so ZeroDown Hot Picks was born.

This is where we'll be sharing the best of the best homes, every week, in the following categories: Smart Value, Green, Restful, and Best Improvements.

A home with the 'Best Improvements' is one that fits a number of the following criteria:

  • Has been recently remodeled, renovated, or otherwise updated
  • Has a recent addition
  • Recent renovation work is of high value projects
  • Public permit records show high-value work done on the home recently.

The core idea is this: Does this home have improvements that significantly increase the comfort and value of the home? Yes, we believe this one does.
