Let's call Burlingables the poster child for Burlingame’s wild 2021 real estate market. After hanging around the city’s entry-level of $2.1 million for 2019 to 2020, the perennially popular neighborhood’s average home price soared to $2.765 million (median of $2.8 million) in 2021, an increase of 27% (median 30%) from 2020 and sixth-highest among Burlingame neighborhoods, sandwiched between Lyon Hoag and Ray Park. Burlingable’s 15 sales are 88% more than recorded in 2020 and its average price of $1,499 per square foot was the highest among Burlingame neighborhoods for the year. Burlingables is at the top of many homebuyers’ wish list due to its proximity to Washington Park and Burlingame Ave as well as its leafy streets, however so few homes come up for sale there driving price per s/f so high. I don’t expect this will change in 2022 with the new $40 million Rec Center opening and the neighborhood becoming even more sought after.

Lot sizes are on average 5,000 s/f compared to the 6,000 s/f average for Burlingame, however, most homes have attached garages with full-sized yards, and many homes on 6,000 s/f lots elsewhere in Burlingame have detached garages with the garage in the rear of the property
Homes within one or two blocks of the freeway may have freeway noise
High price per square foot, but worth it for those who choose to buy in the neighborhood
