Investors are choosing Oakland more than San Francisco


Roland Li recently wrote a great article for the San Francisco Business Times titled “It's now better to invest in homes in Oakland than in San Francisco.

He describes the affordability of single-family rental properties and higher return from Oakland properties.  Matt and I meet new buyers and investors each week who are looking to exit the SF market.   Oakland is attractive for many reasons, affordability being critical.   

In January I blogged about Zillow’s forecast for the hottest zipcodes and appreciation for 2016.  Zillow projects the hottest zip codes are almost entirely in Oakland and particularly East Oakland, where Matt and I live in a beautiful loft.
