The San Francisco Business Times reported this week that Oakland's massive Brooklyn Basin development on the estuary is set to start construction on it's first building this year, after almost a year of site clean-up and preparation.

More and more, everyone from top chefs to food blogs and Bay Area residents are raving about Oakland's popular and growing restaurant and bar scene.
This was once again recognized in a recent survey conducted by the real estate site Estately.
Oakland placed number one in the nation in four categories: Coffee, breakfast, Chinese, and food trucks. It also ranked in the Top 5 cities for Gluten free options, Halal, Japanese, Mexican, Soul Food, Thai, and Vegetarian, and was ranked higher than San Francisco in almost every category. Clearly, Oakland's well-known diversity has contributed to a wide range of amazing food options in the area. Many well-known chefs have been looking to Oakland for their new restaurants as San Francisco has become very cost prohibitive.
The Bay Area didn't fare as well in categories such as...

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...
