Is there still investment value in the Rockridge/Piedmont condo market? Rents have risen sharply over the past few years. And the new restaurants on College Ave, shi-shi coffee shops, and the shops at the Ridge make it desirable to millennials. BART is close by too. The home values should also recover faster in the event of an eventual downturn. Unfortunately there's not a lot of options under $450k and HOA's are high.
