Hello, I'm Hamid Grinage with Better Homes and Gardens Mason McDuffie real estate in Oakland and I'm here to assist you with all of your real estate needs.

You can search for Oakland homes in many different ways, including by District using the links in the "Communities" tab. Here you can search for real estate, request a private showing of any home(s) you are interested in, and get in depth info on neighborhood demographics and market trends all in one place. One of the newest features of this site is the addition of videos to help educate about various topics including short sales and the current state of the market. This site is automatically updated with new listings and price changes every 24 hours, more often than most other property search engines available to the public. MLS listings that are pending sale will not be displayed.

Oakland is leading the Nation's housing recovery according to the National Association of Realtors. On average, Oakland real estate is selling faster compared to any other City in the Country. Multiple offer situations are becoming the norm, as our inventory is historically low. We are moving back in the direction of a sellers' market, compared to the buyers market of the previous several years. This is great news for sellers, however it means that as a buyer you will face more competition when making offers.

Is your house "Underwater"?

Contact me for a free report on the 7 options that you have if you are in this situation.
