In Oakland, multi-family home prices per square foot are much lower than those of comparably-sized single-family residences. You would probably make more with the SFR option. There are more buyers for SFR properties than investors for income properties. ... more

As big as Oakland CA is, it will be impossible to provide a satisfactory answer since the neighborhood values differ depending on where you are. For example, Fruitvale area values shouldn't be compared with Rockridge values, even if the size of the homes are the same. There's a lot of different by zip code

Question for you - you are listed as a "Multifamily specialist serving the Eastbay" - that would make you a real estate agent - don't you have access to the MLS like the rest of us to get this data? ... more

Keep in mind that square footage costs do vary, and don't account for exact location and other considerations; therefore, it's really in your best interest to also review closed recently sold similar properties in the immediate area, and their final sales price... ... more

On the market NOW - been Active for 17 days now @ $315k. Tenant occupied and showings only with appointment & 24hr notice.

Interesting history - appears current owner paid $420k(!) back in 2002, the place was upside down for quite a while, and now, between paying down loans and increased prices, this is yet another recently non-underwater property surfacing onto the market.

Seems fairly priced - comps indicate a value around $285k, but the place looks very clean and turn-key condition so $300k is probably pretty much on the mark.

You interested?

What shows on public records don't match what's there --- for example, bathroom count is different
No offer date was specified, so presumably they will look at offers as received. It's only been on the market for 4 days...

Fabulous deck and landscaped yard --- phenomenal views.

This is just in the hilly area of Millsmont. Commuters may like its proximity to I-580 which generally has less traffic than I-880.

What would you like to know?

I know that this response is far too late to help Dan, as that was posted back in April of last year, but in case it helps anyone else who might be finding this later...

My husband and I have lived in Millsmont for right around a year, and though we love our little house (we are renting), and our landlords are fantastic people who really care about the property and the neighborhood, and I know there are a lot of fantastic people in this neighborhood really trying to make/keep it nice, it is unfortunately not enough to keep us here.

Our house was broken into a few days ago, through a front window. About a month ago, a back window was broken with a rock, though no one came inside that time. One of the two incidents would be bad enough, but the two back-to-back have left us feeling extremely vulnerable and unsafe and paranoid, to the point that we hesitate to both be away from the house at the same time unless we're together and leave a car in the driveway. That is a bad feeling to have. We have been told, and statistics appear to back up, that once you have been burglarized, there is a high probability that you will be burglarized again, because the thieves now know that your house is easy to get into and that there is stuff worth taking, and if it's a pretty nice place, they also know that you'll have insurance that will replace what they steal, so if they just wait a few weeks, you will have replenished your home.

It is a very uneasy feeling to feel that your house has been cased and is probably still being cased. I feel very bad for my landlords, and for the rest of the neighborhood, because there really are good people here, and if good people get scared away, the neighborhood goes to seed. There are nice houses here, and it should be such a nice little community, that it's really sad to see it going bad. My landlords have lived next door for 25 years and say that it has gotten much, much worse even just within the last year.
