Hello Day Flipper,
I have lived in some of the worse areas in and around Oakland & to me by far, Sequoyah Hills are among the most sought after prime area for property. Remember, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
I fell in love with Oakland just because of this particular area back in 1993 when I was stationed at Oak knoll Naval Hospital. Once I got out in '96, I decided to make the Bay Area my home and I actively sought out apartments in or around this area.
Fast forward to now, I myself, would love to have an opportunity to live in this particular area! Everything that you could possibly want is within a very short driving distance in either direction you want to go!
