Millbrae, meaning “rolling hills,” is largely a residential community with a small town feel that has many shops and restaurants. Along with its convenient location adjacent to San Francisco International Airport, the town serves as a major transit hub for the Peninsula connecting BART, Caltrain, and SamTrans networks. In fact, it is the largest intermodal station in the western United States. Its unique position and transportation amenities have really helped to grow and shape the city. Many of the town’s homes are in the hills affording beautiful views of the San Francisco Bay, airport, and downtown San Francisco. Also attractive are the high-ranking schools in Millbrae and its close proximity to San Francisco.
In 2016, the Millbrae average price for a single-family home was $1,537,148, a 3.4% increase from the previous year.
