Apartments for Rent in Oakland

Located on the San Francisco Bay, the port city of Oakland,CA is a great place to call home. Just 8 miles east of San Francisco, this is a very popular place to live and as such, finding a good and affordable apartment is a challenging task. However, if you are patient and persistent and hardworking, you will be able to find an affordable apartment that is right for you.


There are some great resources online that you might want to consider as you begin your search. For example, there is the official website for the city of Oakland, located at this web address: www.oaklandnet.com. This is a terrific resource and contains useful information on public transportation and education, local maps, and links to housing. For example, the “Find Affordable Housing” link is located at this web address: http://www2.oaklandnet.com/Government/o/CEDA/o/hcd/s/AffordableHousingServices/index.htm.


There are also many other free online resources for finding an apartment. There are the online editions of the major newspapers and periodicals, and there are also websites like craigslist.org which are dedicated exclusively to posting free classified ads.


After you have made a good start with some online research the best next step would be to get out and explore your new city. By driving around Oakland you can accomplish several very important tasks. First of all, many landlords and building managers do not advertise their property for rent in any other way than placing an “apartment for rent” sign in the window or on the street. These are often some of the most desirable apartments and you won’t see them if you don’t get out and explore. As you are driving or walking around is also a great time to be looking for employment and dropping off resumes. If you don’t already have a job the chances of a landlord taking your application seriously are pretty slim. While you are driving you are also learning the street names and neighborhoods and helping to narrow down where you might want to live.


Oakland is a great place to choose to live. The Bay Area has a vibrant economy and culture, and there’s something for everyone. There’s professional sports franchises for those who are sports minded. There’s the bay itself for those who are outdoors enthusiasts. Just next door is a fantastic redwood forest preserved in a National Park for those who love hiking? This is a super choice for a new home. Which is precisely why finding an affordable apartment will take some effort.


Getting up early in the morning is probably a good idea. Being the first in a list of names to call back might make a big difference as to whether or not you get the apartment you most want. It’s also a good idea to have all of your paperwork ready for any prospective landlord. Make sure your references and proof of employment are in a file and ready to go to the interviews you’ll be having with prospective landlords.


Have a great time in Oakland and the Bay Area.
