The City of Berkeley is more than a college town; it is a magnet for brilliance. Influential, exciting and artistic, it is a hub for fearless innovators, brawny businesses, and now smarter living experiences, thanks to the arrival of Modera Berkeley.This new high-style community is comprised of four distinct buildings, each one with its own mix of amenities and aesthetics. What unites them is simple: A devotion to beautiful design and functionality.

Then head out to enjoy some grilling, gaming, cycling, and most importantly, all the downtime you deserve. Outside, it feels as if the city revolves around you. Feel the urge to be inspired? Head to the Berkeley Arts District or Aurora Theatre Company. Famished? Take a stroll down Shattuck and Telegraph Avenues to check out the birthplace of the farm-to-table movement. Or just take a ride down a Bicycle Boulevard and revel in the bohemian spirit of this city. This is where everyone wants to be, and you have the opportunity to live.Modera Berkeley is a stunning new community in a hotspot overflowing with action and ambition. And from it, there is virtually nothing you can not accomplish.

City Guide for El Cerrito, CA

Founded by San Francisco residents that survived the 1906 earthquake, El Cerrito means "little knob" or hill.

Situated along the East Bay, El Cerrito is considered part of the much larger San Francisco Bay Area. The city in Contra Costa County was founded by San Francisco residents displaced after the devastating 1906 earthquake that all but leveled the city. They settled first on ranch land, and then built a town around it. When a post office was established on the ranch in 1909, the settlement was named Rust after its first postmaster. The residents weren't happy with that name and by 1916 the area was known as El Cerrito.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments with hardwood floors in El Cerrito, CA

Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for El Cerrito renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.

However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.

Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.

It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.

Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.

However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
