photo courtesy of Baran Studio   As home prices climb throughout the country and especially in the Bay Area, more and more attention is turning to what I like to call flex-architecture. Popularized by television shows such as HGTV's Tiny House Hunters, many buyers who are feeling priced out of our real estate market in the East Bay have been reaching out to myself and East Bay Modern Real Estate looking for alternative residential options. While building can be prohibitively expensive and is not for the faint of heart, many younger buyers (who often don't yet have children) are increasingly exploring the idea of pre-fab, container or even tiny homes.   The most notable companies dealing in the pre-fab construction market are Blu Homes and…

My first time home buyers recently closed on this amazing, modern, newly built home in San Leandro. They were a bit concerned when we began our home search due to the extreme competitiveness of the current East Bay real estate market. But our search only lasted a few weeks and the only offer that we wrote was for this super cool home, an offer which was accepted. My clients are not only first time home buyers, but parents as well. Their baby was born just a few weeks prior to us finding this house, so the timing couldn't have been much better! I wish them the best on this next chapter of their life and thank them for their business. A big thank you as well to my previous clients who recommended them to me!

Finding a cost-effective and buildable lot in the more established East Bay neighborhoods of the Berkeley and Oakland Hills can be a daunting if not impossible task. And finding such a lot is only half the battle. The rigorous and costly due diligence process most often includes geotechnical surveying, civil and structural engineering, city planning and permitting, architectural studies and design, just to name a few.

On rare occasions buyers are presented with the perfect opportunity to purchase land where all of these requirements have already been addressed. The three lots located on 6568, 6588, and 6598 Exeter Dr. in the Montclair Hills present you such an opportunity! Whether you are an investor or developer or a buyer looking to build your

The latest modern vision of Baran Studio is coming to fruition in Oakland's Piedmont neighborhood. In collaboration with builder Bitzer Banker Development the project located at 4425 Piedmont Ave. is rapidly approaching completion. This project consists of seven separate buildings each of which is three stories tall. The three front buildings will each consist of two residential units along with a ground floor live-work unit.
