San Leandro is one of the East Bay’s best kept secrets. San Leandro, not unlike Alameda in feel with small neighborly neighborhoods, is also about the same size with 90,000 people. It is bordered by water on one side, and the East Bay Hills on the other. Stable neighborhoods with thirties and forties bungalows and fifties ranches are mixed with newer subdivisions along the City’s Marina. San Leandro’s charm and neighborhoods have been a newer discovery of the last couple years as first time buyers have gotten priced out of many of Oakland’s neighborhoods, and have instead ventured a couple miles south. The average price for a 3-bedroom home is around $650,000.
