First-time homebuyers may well find their best options in the East Bay’s affordable hidden gem: the Richmond Annex! Located closer to downtown El Cerrito than most other parts of El Cerrito, homes here are priced more affordably than its twin. Shaped like a ship sailing its way into El Cerrito and toward Albany, Richmond Annex offers quiet, landscaped residential streets with a small town atmosphere. Shopping and dining options along San Pablo Avenue are easily accessed, with local favorites such as Yaoya-San Japanese market and El Cerrito Natural Grocery Company, as well as Trader Joe’s, Safeway, and Home Depot. Families flock here for the 2- and 3-bedroom bungalow homes and some of the best schools of West Contra Costa School District. Weather here is gloriously mild, and its proximity to the Bay means some of the homes have pleasant views of the Bay. Homeownership may be closer than you think!

After what we’ve all gone through, […]
