SF Chronicle published an article today about one of the hottest zip codes in our area. 94608 is Emeryville and North Oakland. The prices in this area have gone up 7.7% from last year. My clients have experienced that rise in prices. There have been multiple offers on homes in that area that drive a $350k price up to $500k! The homes are typically craftsman bungalows with original details, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, medium size back yard and usually need some work.
