Oakland California Puts Bay Area Real Estate On The Map For Good

By: Matthew Larsen

Oakland California is one of the best places to live and work in the Bay Area. It has fantastic weather that is ranked in the top five in the world for a moderate Mediterranean climate. Oakland is located just east of San Francisco and Emeryville and north of San Leandro and Hayward. Oakland is home to just over 400,000 residents and is the third largest city in the Bay Area. Many people overlook Oakland because it may not be as popular as some other cities but like much of the Bay Area it is a great place. There is a wide range of cultural diversity and influence from around the world here and a reflection in food, restaurants and retail shops. The quality of life in Oakland is very good and it is easy to find pretty much anything one could want.

There are many things to do in Oakland including any of the fifty parks that make up the East Bay Regional Park District. Oakland is also home to the Oakland Raiders pro football team, the Oakland A's pro baseball team and the Golden State Warriors pro basket ball team. Oakland is also a major stop for many concerts and events that are on tour. Oakland has a great central location to the rest of the bay area. It is easy to get around using public transportation or driving. With great weather most of the year, this makes it easy to get out and enjoy outdoor activities and events. Oakland is home to the very trendy College Avenue that is lined with upscale restaurants and shops. This is a really fun area to walk around and pay tribute to some fine eateries and bar hop. There are also many coffee shops, cafes and Market Hall. Market hall has several very upscale markets combined together to provide great food. There is a delicatessen, a fine cheese shop with cheeses from around the globe, a butcher shop, a fresh seafood shop, a fine wine shop, and an organic produce shop. If you like to cook and enjoy fresh ingredients, Market Hall is a must visit.

The Oakland hills contain many of the Bay Area's fine homes and estates many of which possess panoramic views of the bay and San Francisco. There is nothing like looking out over the bay area on a clear day. The Montclair district makes up a very popular and trendy part of the Oakland hills scenery. There are many shops, restaurants and conveniences that the locals enjoy spending time in. Every Sunday morning, the streets are blocked off and there is a farmers market that takes place offering a vast array of fresh produce and consumer goods. There are usually bands that play and many vendors offering beer and wine along with different types of food for sale. Montclair is a great place to enjoy a very fine lifestyle.

Oakland is more affordable than many other Bay Area cities that are close to San Francisco. There are many great deals on property here that will go up in value during the years to come. It is evident that the population in the state of California will continue to rise and the demand for housing will go with it. Those who take advantage of the housing prices in this down market will benefit and prosper. Contact us if you would like more information about Oakland Real Estate. I have been a resident of Oakland for the past twenty years and enjoy the lifestyle that it provides. There is no doubt that Oakland California is a fine place to live.
