This was particularly true during the housing crisis that began in 2007. Homes near mass transit weathered that storm better other houses, the study said.
Nationally, researchers said homes within a half-mile of public transportation with high frequency service performed 42 percent better when it came to property values.
In the Bay Area, those homes near transit performed 37 percent better than other properties.
