Real Estate

Highs and lows

Home prices range from six to eight figures

From August through September this year, home prices land all over the board. The highest sales were seen in Atherton and Palo Alto, recording $31 million and $30 million, respectively, according to homes sales from the Palo Alto Weekly's August and September editions.

The ranges in price vary depending on what the sale included or how the transaction was carried out. Atherton definitely stands out as having the widest range in price, from $272,000 to $31 million. That is a difference of $30,728,000.

The data also shows that areas such as Los Altos Hills and Portola Valley have a limited number of sales and the prices are more homogenous.
