Homeless mothers who were evicted last week from an Oakland, California, house where they were squatting plan to move back after speculators agreed to sell the property to a nonprofit organization. 

The deal was announced Monday by the city and the group Moms 4 Housing, whose members were removed from the vacant home and arrested. The group has been protesting home speculation in the Bay Area city, which is struggling with a housing shortage and homelessness crisis. Wedgewood Inc. will sell the property to the Oakland Community Land Trust, which plans to allow women from Moms 4 Housing to return.
