Hot Pick Home: 'Restful' 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 'Restful' home is one that fits a number of the following criteria:

  • Near greenery (trees/parks/trails)
  • Located in a quiet neighborhood
  • Has a large yard or outdoor space
  • Has a large lot size-to-living space ratio
  • Has amenities that enhance comfort and restfulness

The core idea is this: Does this home have amenities and is it located in a place that emphasizes peace and quiet? We certainly think so.
