Alameda Homes & Real Estate

See the newest Alameda homes for sale and more real estate in Alameda County below. The city of Alameda is spread out across Alameda Island and Bay Farm Island, allowing for waterfront homes to be both prevalent and highly sought-after among home buyers looking for a new place to live in the East Bay. With an estimated population of around 80,000 people, Alameda is larger than most buyers might expect if they’re just looking at the city on a map, which also means residents and home owners are presented with plenty of community amenities and attractions well within the city limits as well. And because of its location directly across the Bay from San Francisco, many locals here also enjoy some pretty spectacular views from the comfort of their own home, truly making it a remarkable place to live.

Alameda Real Estate Market

For home buyers who love vintage architecture and historic homes, they'll love what the Alameda real estate market has to offer. Specifically known for its Victorian-era houses, it’s been said that 9% of all single-family homes in the Alameda area are Victorian, with many today having been split into two to four-unit living spaces that are among some of the more affordable properties buyers will find listed on the market. Smaller bungalows, Craftsman-style homes, and cottages are also common throughout Alameda, so regardless of style, design, or individual needs or wants, buyers who are touring the area are bound to find something they like here in what many consider to be one of the most desirable places to live in all of East Bay.

From Alameda’s older neighborhoods in Fernside and East End, to the newest housing project on what was once the Naval Air Station on the west end of Alameda island, homes in the City of Alameda are diverse. Stately Victorians, California bungalows, traditional Queen Annes, and classic, elegant Eastlake homes sit side-by-side. On the northern edge of the island is a modest neighborhood of older speculator/builder homes, and on the south side is an award-winning mid-century development, designed by Fisher Friedman, of waterfront townhouses and condos.

Alameda Community Amenities

Just southwest of Oakland, and bound by the Oakland Estuary, San Leandro Bay, and the San Francisco Bay, is Alameda – an island city full of tree-lined streets, kitschy shops, diverse architecture, and recreational opportunities that include community parks, golf courses, beaches, and bike trails. Somewhat isolated from the hustle and bustle of the East Bay, but within a reasonable commute of other East Bay cities and San Francisco, Alameda is considered by many to be an ideal bedroom community.

Alameda is considered a hot spot for wind and kite surfers thanks to Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, which is located right in the center of Alameda Island along the bay front. It’s here where buyers will also find the Alameda Dog Park and plenty of open green space and walking trails and bike paths that take full advantage of the San Francisco skyline views, so it’s among the best places in town to also take the dog for a run or just enjoy an afternoon outside when the weather cooperates. Homes for sale in Alameda also provide a close proximity to the Oakland International Airport, which can be especially convenient for anyone who frequently travels. Additionally, the historic Park Street Business District provides Alameda residents with plenty of local shopping and dining, and its designated Historic Commercial District status on the National Register also ensures the character and charm of downtown Alameda won’t be going away anytime soon.

Friendly neighborhoods, a certified farmers’ market, good elementary schools, and fun filled festivals and celebrations help to make Alameda a family friendly community. Modest mom and pop stores, local coffee shops, and independently owned restaurants offer a small town atmosphere; while the Alameda Towne Centre provides the convenience of a bustling retail district with big name stores and services.
