Many cities in the San Francisco Bay area have homes on the water.  The closest ones here are found in Alameda, on Alameda Bay Farm Island, and Ballena Bay.  Whether you want a condo, townhome or single family home, there are many things to consider when purchasing a home on, or near, the water. It is especially important to take a moment to review your choice of homes, when you know that due to their pleasant views and ambiance, they are often more expensive compared to similar homes in the neighborhood that are not by the water.

The city of Oakland has more than 100 neighborhoods--some are quite big, and some are surprisingly small.  Each is unique in character, history and home design.  In some areas, there will be homes that are entirely single family ranch, while in others, they are super modern, and sit atop a high hill with unfettered views of San Francisco.  Some neighborhoods offer a rich cultural history, and others brag about their very unique shops, stores and restaurants.
