There is no definitive answer to that question unless you have a magic crystal ball that is infallible.

What makes some communities more desirable than others and as such, raise property values?

As a community, the residents of Millsmont could band together to show the property in the best possible light.

For example -- organize a Neighborhood Watch if you don't have one already

Look out for each other in terms of maintaining curb appeal -- some property owners may have elderly or sick residents who can't do yardwork. Organize groups to help and do what's necessary to maintain the yard...maybe even repaint...

Encourage people with garages to put their cars in the garages instead of having too many cars on the street, Beat-up vehicles littering the area will hardly help beef up market values.

Organize block parties --- get to know each other. Create a high level of neighborliness.

And so on...

This area needs advertising. A lot of people, potential buyers, don't know about Millsmont. Agents: advertise this area!!!! Cheaper than Montclair; you get more house for your money.

It is never advertised like other areas of Oakland.

Millsmont is lush with quiet street and even view of San Francisco with some beautiful houses from the 20's and 30's era. The center / business area of Millsmont needs to be improved with more restaurant maybe and small farmer's market etc.... I think neighborhood association can do a lot to change that which of course to have the neighborhood more known to the public.
