In 1999, my husband and I purchased a major fixer in Redwood Heights. At the time my daughter Nia was 2 1/2and my son was 8 months old. I was so excited about moving into the neighborhood that I lived in during my elementary and middle school years. I visited Redwood Heights Elementary as soon as I was in contract on my house and found several teachers from my youth in the hallways. There was an immediate warmth that embraced me with this neighborhood. The reasons I bought in this community was the elementary school, the recreation center, the diverse community and it was a true neighborhood that fit my budget. I didn't want to compromise and purchase a small house that I would outgrow, I wanteda three bedroom, 2 bathroom home with a yard and a sidewalk out front. For my husband and I, it was not important to walk to BART or a high-end restaurant, as we just loved being a quick 5 minute car ride to almost anywhere we needed to be. 13 years later I am still in my 1951 Redwood Heights horseshoe shaped rancher and I have no intentions of moving. I have restored many aspects of the property, I know all of my neighbors and it is comforting and familiar like your favorite down throw. Over the past 3 years my neighboring houses are selling for less, making Redwood Heights a great place to invest. Here you can get a larger home in one of Oakland's stand out communities.
