Since you haven't gotten any replies yet, I'll weigh in. I don't live in the BA anymore (although I grew up there) but as you know my ds moved to SF last August and attends Berkeley. From hearing the stories from him and his gf I think that I can make some suggestions...I'm assuming that your niece is in her mid to late 20s?

Hey sabr - has your niece come out here to look at places to live yet? Just curious!

Oh Cal, I'm sorry I haven't said thank you for all your excellent advice--none of which my niece has chosen to take.

Do you have any idea where in Oakland this place is? And is it a room in a house or an apt.? It does sound strange that they would wait for her rather than rent it out now, and that they wouldn't want a security deposit to hold it. Sounds a bit fishy to me. If she's willing to provide the address I can possibly give you an idea of the neighborhood. So frustrating when our adult children don't want to listen! She would probably listen to a stranger before a relative! Maybe she can run it by her new employer and see what they say.

I will try to get the address, but she's being rather coy about it.

I can also ask my ds about the neighborhood, if you get the address. Hopefully it will all work out well for your niece. When does she head west?
