Despite the run up in Oakland’s home prices over the last year, the East Bay city still has a median house price that is half San Francisco’s median, according to a new survey from Paragon Real Estate. Paragon found that between mid-August 2014 and mid-February 2015, Oakland’s median house price was $520K, versus $1.1 million in San Francisco. (Take a look at what you can get for that price in the gallery above.)

Oakland’s median was also less expensive than Berkeley, which had a median of $918K, and Alameda, which had a median of $710K. Neighboring Piedmont’s median of $1.8 million not only made it dramatically more expensive than Oakland, or even San Francisco, it actually came in higher than ritzy Bay Area locales like Burlingame ($1.7 million), Mill Valley ($1.3 million) and Larkspur ($1.5 million).

Oakland did not have the lowest median in the East Bay, however. With a median of only $330K, that honor went to Richmond. Hayward also came in below Oakland, with a $431K median, as did Concord ($444K).

On the peninsula, Daly City($700K) and Pacifica ($720K) were both relative bargains in an area where even modest homes are trading at higher and higher prices. Atherton took the top prize for most-expensive median in the Bay Area; at $5.4 million for a single-family home, it was far above even Hillsborough ($3.25 million) and Palo Alto ($2.5 million). The area even bested one of San Francisco’s most expensive neighborhoods, Pacific Heights, where the $4.1 million median is still not enough to get a home in the little town Forbes magazine named its most expensive zip code.
