Oakland Real Estate Market

Oakland is Alameda County's largest city, not to mention its acting county seat. Despite lying in the shadows of glamorous San Francisco, Oakland has a lot to offer Bay Area home buyers, starting with the city's undeniably diverse culture and growing popularity amongst anybody looking to escape the ever-increasing home prices of its counterpart across the Bay. Oakland is also one of the busiest port cities in all of California, providing jobs for thousands of residents who live all over the city. And with a burgeoning restaurant and nightlife scene that's also continuing to transform much of the downtown area, Oakland should be considered an intriguing option for just about any East Bay home buyer who prefers a vibrant urban setting.

Oakland is comprised of over 50 distinguished neighborhoods, which for the most part belong to several key districts: Downtown Oakland (Central Business District), Lake Merritt, East Oakland, North Oakland, West Oakland, and Oakland Hills. As you might expect, Downtown Oakland features a fairly broad mix of condos and loft residences, while homes up in Oakland Hills are generally defined as some of the city's more expensive housing options, which still aren't terribly pricey compared to Bay Area home prices in general. Living near Lake Merritt is also a top choice for Oakland home buyers thanks to all the walking trails, park areas, and green spaces that essentially surround the entire lake; so if you're somebody love to get outside and stay active, a home or condo here should definitely be at the top of your wish list.

Neighborhoods in Oakland

Although Oakland has a somewhat rough-and-tumble reputation, it is, in reality, a sophisticated city with a rich history. Gracious neighborhoods with distinctive architecture and homes designed by renowned architects including Julia Morgan, Bernard Maybeck, and Carr Jones are tucked up in the Oakland Hills. Sequoyah Hills (also called Sequoyah Heights) is of particular interest to mid-century modern enthusiasts. This community, which was developed in the 1960's and '70s, is best known for its development of homes built by Joseph Eichler. Sequoyah Hills/Heights is one of only four Eichler developments in the East Bay.

As a major West Coast port with miles of coastline, Oakland CA has a vibrant, exciting waterfront. One hundred years ago Jack London Square was a shipping yard. Today Jack London Square is a hip new destination with trendy lofts, contemporary condos, stylish modern homes and exciting shopping, dining, and entertainment. Another up-and-coming waterfront area is West Oakland. This neighborhood has a gritty reputation, but the conversion of factories and warehouses into lofts, and old Victorians that have been provided some TLC, is giving this area a boost.

Real estate in Oakland California is exciting. Homes come in a wide variety of architectural styles ranging from Storybook, Victorian, Eastlake, and Mission Revival to mid-century ranch, Eichlers, and sleek contemporary. From exclusive Oakland Hills neighborhoods like Rockridge and Crocker Highlands to the hip and trendy Jack London Square, homes for sale in Oakland offer something for every taste and sensibility.

Oakland Community Amenities

It's been said that Oakland has the highest concentration of artists per capita, so the arts and music scene in town is off the charts. The Fox Oakland Theatre is one of the more iconic concert venues in the entire Bay Area, and the same could even be said for the 3,040-seat Art Deco Paramount Theatre just up the street. If you haven't spent a ton of time in Oakland yet, making a quick trip over to Chinatown is also highly recommended as well. Despite often being overshadowed by the more prominent Chinatown in San Francisco, Oakland's Chinatown is still loaded with plenty of shopping and dining, and is also considered by many to be one of the more authentic Chinatowns in the entire U.S.
