Hi Jessica,

In general you will get more square footage for the money no matter where you buy. A smaller home tends to sell at a higher $/sqft than a big house, sometimes almost twice as much.
You can find some bigger homes in the flats of El Cerrito (those that have been added on) but we tend to have a lot of 2 bedroom/1 bath homes in the flats and bigger homes (3/2) in the hills with views.
Location is key also. You can spend $600,000 for a small 2/1 in the St Jerome area, close to Thousand Oaks about 1000sqft and then spend the exact amount in the hills in northern El Cerrito for a 3/2 1800sqft home!

I hope this helps. If you need exact comparables just let me know.

Best regards,
