See what homes are for sale now in BerkeleySee what homes are for sale now in Oakland After the 1907 earthquake, Rockridge was one of the first neighborhoods settled in Oakland, with its proximity to San Francisco being one of the drawing cards...just as it is today.  It was just a couple of years after the  earthquake that this charming Victorian was built at 5261 Miles Avenue. It has all the details of the period: box ceiling, built ins, wainscoting and large moldings plus a basement.  It has all the accoutrements people were used to in the city.  Additionally, it has 2 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, an updated kitchen that opens to a family room and a wonderful deck and backyard.  Today, it's even closer to the city: just three blocks to BART and all the restaurants and stores of Rockridge a...

Sales prices of single family homes in one of our favorite neighborhoods--Rockridge in Oakland, CA--have seen a series of rises and falls over the past three years. From this time in 2008, median sold prices in this popular area saw a fairly percipitous fall from the mid-$900's to the mid-$700's, and back up to the mid-$900's nine months later. From a median of $780K at the beginning of 2010, they zoomed up by almost $200K  to $975K, dropped back to around $800K, soared again last quarter to the $900K range, only to drop back again this quarter to a median of $818K. What an exhausting ride! Over the course of three years median sold prices are now down 16%, but we won't be surprised to see them take another swing upwards! While median sold prices ended down 6% as compared to this time l...

If you're anything like the buyer’s in the survey, I’d say you’re a smart, educated buyer, who is paying attention. What are your top 3 needs in a home? A survey by American Lives, a consumer research firm in California, conducted a study for the trade magazine Builder to answer that question. Here are their conclusions: · They are young. Most are under 45. Half said they had annual household incomes of $75,000 or less. Two-thirds are married. · They are frugal.
