Existing Affordable Rental Housing
Assisted (Subsidized) Rental Housing in Oakland - Click here for the Directory of Assisted Rental Housing, a list of all affordable housing developments in Oakland. While you may use this list to locate affordable housing projects, this is NOT a list of available or vacant housing. Please note that most completed affordable housing projects are full and have closed waiting lists.
New homes - Lists of affordable ownership units being built can be found on the list of projects underway. You may want to contact the developer of a project to determine when homes will be completed and for sale.
Existing homes - Homes/units that were originally built as affordable housing are not marketed by the City. Current owners who choose to sell their homes may do so via traditional means, such as real estate agents and local real estate listings. Some of these homes are subject to resale controls to ensure continuing affordability; others may be sold at market rate and the subsidies repaid to the City.
AB 987 Databases
AB 987, which went into effect on January 1, 2008, requires all California Redevelopment Agencies to maintain and publish databases of new and substantially rehabilitated housing assisted by the Redevelopment Agency. Required information includes the address and parcel number(s) of the property, number of units with number of bedrooms, year construction was completed, the date affordability restrictions were recorded, the recording number of those restrictions, and the date the restrictions expire.
The Oakland Redevelopment Agency has prepared two databases in compliance with these requirements - one for assisted rental housing, and one for assisted ownership housing.
Special Needs / AIDS Housing
