We know not what happens in the East Bay, but every so often get a request to expand our coverage, and we do our best to oblige, but we’re just not there…physically, mentally, or expertisely (not a word, we know). This time, we again defer to the reader’s report Thanks Dan!
I wish you would expand your coverage to the east bay. There’s a lot of variation within Oakland – the poor to marginal areas seem like they’ve got lots for sale, but the situation is more complex in the good to great neighborhoods. Definitely a bit down compared to a year or 2 ago, but holding pretty strong. Piedmont on the other hand is still completely crazy. A semi fixer (didn’t see it myself, but that’s what I’m told) listed at 1900 sq ft just went on the market at 1.025M, got 10 offers, is pending at 1.3M. The great school system of piedmont coupled with the subpar public middle and high schools of Oakland, plus crime and low inventory, drive Piedmont up with no slowing in sight. Anyway, there’s a lot of interesting stuff, and some of it, especially Piedmont & Rrockridge plays a role in SF market.
Keep providing us that insight Dan, and you’ll educate us all on what’s going down across our newly polluted bay. We appreciate the information. Seriously…keep it coming!
