Front Row Seats to the 2013 America's Cup in San Francisco!

Sharing our spectacular sunsets is one of the joys of selling real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2013, the view of the Bay will offer something even more thrilling: The America's Cup yacht race!

Staplenews.com reports, "Rather than holding the races miles off shore, which was the case in Valencia and in Newport, where the Cup was held from 1930 to 1983, San Francisco Bay offers a natural amphitheater."

We couldn't agree more. Like a Greek theater, the East Bay's naturally sloped topography will make many of the view homes feel like luxury box seats overlooking the main event.

In the current market, some of these luxury view homes can be purchased at a relative bargain. Berkeley Hills Realty currently has a panoramic view home listed in El Cerrito for under $700,000. 8379 Terrace Drive in El Cerrito is a custom built home with an exceptional vantage point for the 2013 America's Cup; binoculars included!
