If you are looking for an interactive and informative family event in the East Bay, you may want to consider the many weekly activities offered by the East Bay Regional Park Crab Cove Visitor Center in Alameda.  Located directly adjacent to San Francisco Bay, this wonderful center offers information about the aquatic and land based animals in and around the Bay.

While long term Alameda residents may know about the small little home at the corner of Broadway and Crist, it always provides a bit of humor when they learn about the history surrounding it.  

Most visitors or Alamedans will pass it a trip to South Shore Center, or on their way to work, and not even know that it is there.  But, if they take a look at it closely, they will no doubt smile with amusement because of it's odd shape and tiny lot.

It was built by Charles Froling at the turn of the 20th century as a classic Victorian, with all the appropriate architecture known at the time.  It  offered a handsome design, beautiful wood trim, lots of windows, and good quality workmanship.  It was soon known as the "Spite House".

It seems that…

At one time, in the early part of the 20th Century, Alameda's Neptune Beach was a hugely popular venue for families from all over the SF Bay area.  Many would come to swim in the pools, enjoy the rides and games, or sit on the beach and watch others doing the same thing.  Located at the foot of Webster Street in Alameda, it was an exciting venue to visit.  Now gone, Alamedans still remember it's vital past, and now, for the 3rd year in a row, are celebrating it by holding the 3rd Annual Neptune Beach Community Celebration. 

Located just moments from the original site, the celebration will stay true to it's roots, and offers a ferris wheel, a fun slide,pony rides, climbing walls, and other activities to delight local families.  A stage will offer…

If you are interested in selling your Alameda home quickly, and have a buyer that has yet to take the final step to committing to purchase, you may want to consider these suggestions below.  Most of these steps involve a financial reward to this motivated buyer, but if you are anxious to move ahead, and are financially comfortable taking these steps, you may be surprised at the results.  Here are some tips to consider:

1.Offer To Pay For The Home Inspection And/Or The Resultant Repairs Needed--Usually, it is the buyer who will pay for the home inspections as a way to insure that all is going to be well with the new home.  They also like working with their own inspector, rather than the seller's.  Work with the buyer either way. Negotiate who will…

When it comes time to put your Oakland or Alameda home on the market, plans need to be made to make the best impression possible on future buyers.  Often a lot of preparation time and money is spent on yards, kitchens and bedrooms, but there can be one feature that could deter potential buyers. That can be the presence of uncorrected damage, or the presence of odors, from pets in the home.  Whether unrepaired scratches on back doors or screens, or the accumulation of debris, or fence damage in the back yard, these issues should be addressed.  Often, because sellers haved lived with their pets for so long, they may not be aware of the extent of their pet problems. Take time to see things from the eyes of an outsider.

The next step is to make…

We in the Bay area are very lucky to have so many homes on, or near, the water.  Whether it be a quiet lagoon on Alameda Bay Farm Island, alongside a stream in the Oakland hills, or next to San Francisco Bay in Alameda, the choices are numerous and varied.  Because of their appeal, they can often be a bit more expensive than a similar home elsewhere, so it is important to consider the issues concerning their purchase so you can be assured that you have the best value for your money.

The Pluses of Purchasing A Home On The Water:

1. The presence of water often creates a soothing, gentle atmosphere within and around the home.  Often, one can observe the plants, wildlife, and small animals that are usually adjacent to these streams and bays.

When it comes time to sell your Oakland or Alameda home, you want the very best first impression possible.  We have talked in the past about creating a clean, clutter free appearance for potential buyers, but often there are three things that are not attended to, often due to finances, that can make a huge difference in the appeal of your home.  The question becomes-is it worth it to spend the money making these changes before putting the house on the market?  It may be. Here are some problems that make your home look older, and might be worth addressing:

1. Having Outdated Kitchen Appliances, Ranges and Dishwashers and Countertops-Most sellers by now should realize that having an updated kitchen in a home is one of the strongest appeals to buyers…
