Victorian Downtown Apartments

8th Street Oakland 7 Units

658_8th Street

This historic 100+ year old building was bought in 2013 with two other partners, one happened to be a client and mentor with over 30 years experience owning income property in the Bay Area. I showed him this property to get his input and he liked it so much he offered to partner with me.

This property posed significant challenges as it has a brick foundation and many years of deferred maintenance. Lenders were not willing to finance a building with a brick foundation and I was coming out of a partial exchange.  Consequently it took months of negotiating and structuring of ownership to close on this victorian 7 unit building in Uptown Oakland.
