Oakland, CA – The Pinza Group, the leading East Bay Multifamily Sales Brokerage, has announced the sale of five units in Oakland’s Mosswood/Temescal District. The property, located at 396 38th Street, sold for $850,000. David Howarth represented both buyer and seller in the transaction, which was sold to an investor in a 1031 exchange.

The property was built in 1954 and offers five large 1bd/1bth units with separate garage spaces and excellent curb-appeal. At the time of sale, the property was fully occupied with many units being far below market in rent. The property was separately metered for PG&E, with low overall maintenance, providing for low annual expenses. 396 38th Street offered the next investor the opportunity to acquire an investment in a popular growth market with excellent income and investment upside.

The property is located on a quiet residential street only a few blocks to BART, Kaiser Hospital, and the beginning of the Temescal District. Temescal is one of the oldest neighborhoods in North Oakland and centered on Telegraph Avenue. Temescal’s boundaries roughly extend from 51st Street to the north, 40th Street to the south, Broadway to the east and the Grove-Shafter freeway to the west. In recent years, Temescal has experienced a recent revival of fortune with many new restaurants and shopping options with a hip, young customer-base.

The location offers immediate access to HWY 24 and HWY 580 making it an easy commute to San Francisco and Berkeley. In recent years, this location has benefited from significant improvements due to ongoing development and is one of the most desirable markets in all of Oakland. Nearby schools include Archway School, Park Day School and Oakland International High School. The closest grocery stores are Piedmont Grocery Co, Sprouts Farmers Market and Micro’s Market. 396 38th St is near numerous parks including Mosswood Park, Ridgeway Plaza and Grove Shafter Park.
