Hayward is a centrally located Alameda County city with a population of about 150,000 people. Hayward is the third most populous city in Alameda County, and the fifth most populous in the entire bay area. Hayward is conveniently located with respect to all of the major bay area cities, being roughly 30 miles southeast of San Francisco, 15 miles south of Oakland, and 25 miles north of San Jose. Hayward was one of many bay area suburbs that was built to accomodate the thousands of veterans returning from World War II to cash in on their G.I. Bills and get home loans courtesy of Uncle Sam. They had experienced California briefly on their way over to combat in the Pacific, and once they did, they were hooked. After the war, they came looking for jobs and homes. Hayward also offers educational opportunities, via a community college and Cal State Hayward, as well. Almost half of all the housing in Hayward was built between 1950 and 1970, and generally favored the three bedroom, 2 bath model. Older homes can be found closer to the downtown area, and much larger, more upscale homes can be found up in the hills. All in all, this housing mix gives Hayward a wide range of prices and accommodations for home buyers. The commute is decent, especially if one takes BART or uses the Hayward/San Mateo bridge to commute to the peninsula. There are also many local employers, as well -- the best commute is virtually no commute, after all! Shake, rattle, and roll -- Hayward lends its name to the Hayward fault -- an earthquake fault line that runs right through the town and even caused the old city hall building to be abandoned, since the fault ran right through it! The California state census in 2004 counted 46,985 residential housing units in Hayward, of which 23,364 were single family detached houses, 3,396 were single family attached homes, 17,926 were apartments, condos, or townhouses, and 2,299 were mobile homes.
