It is a great time to live in Hayward. In comparison to other East Bay cities, Hayward remains an affordable place to purchase a quality home. Mature tree-lined neighborhoods are intermixed with modern, luxury estates in the hills, providing homebuyers a selection of residential choices. Single-family dwellings, townhomes and condominium complexes are readily available, as are ample options for rental alternatives for those not in the market to buy at this time.
To meet the demands that come with growth, the city continues to implement measures to enhance and expand the services and amenities residents and businesses appreciate. Beautiful parks and schools are being renovated; bus and rail service improved; utility lines moved underground; and fall, spring and summer seasons feature community festivals in neighborhoods, parks and in the historic downtown.
