Oakland Crime SpreeI don't know if someone is going to make you move from what Zillow thinks is a $1.6 million home by paying you $6 million, but I will tell you that as this recession intensifies, unemployment is going to rise. And I expect that Oakland is going to become a freaking shooting gallery. San Francisco, the Silicon Valley, the Peninsula, further out in the East Bay like Dublin, San Ramon, Lafayette, etc., those places will hurt, but not like Oakland. Once people start to fear for their lives, that little island of rich people in the Oakland HIlls are going to realize that they do not belong there and no police brutality, no armor and home alarm systems is going to make them feel safe there.I see a lot of places for sale in the Oakland Hills so someone must be thinking the same thing, but I wonder what the concensus is. The question is whether a long recession is likely to result in much worse unemployment and crime in Oakland and if it does, if you will see rich folks flee from the Oakland Hills.
