Neighborhood Focus--Maxwell Park

Looking at the market these days, I am seeing more and more great deals in the Maxwell Park section of Oakland, which is one of the most on-the-rise sections of this town.

Maxwell Park was created in the 1920s and is generally situated along the western side of the 580 between the Fruitvale/Laurel districts and Mills College. The architecture is a charming mix of period bungalows and single family homes with old world touches. Plus, it is close to BART and has many services and great schools. Just this spring, Oakland Magazine named Maxwell Park as one of the best neighborhoods in town.

What does the market look like in Maxwell Park this week? Pretty interesting. Over 20 properties are listed in this little neighborhood. Here are a few properties that look great:

*5360 Walnut--$444,900--A huge 2 story 4/2.5 that needs just a little sprucing up
*3206 Millsview--$485,000--A beautifully updated 2/1 with 1150 sq. ft.
*4615 Brookdale--$479,000--This 2/1 has great period details, modern updates & fruit trees!
*3214 Wyman--$525,000--This 1929 3/1.5 is the definition of storybook charm!
*2821 Madera--$529,000--A 2/1 with classic curb appeal and impressive updates throughout
*3012 Kingsland--$724,000--A huge 4/3 home with some of the best remodeling work in the neighborhood. If you want to spend a little more, this looks like a great deal!
*And many more...

If you would like to tour these homes or explore the neighborhood some more, I would be happy to help. I can be reached at 510-547-5970 x57 or
