Best Trick or Treat ‘Hoods in SF

I came across Zillow’s Trick or Treat housing index yesterday, and found its picks for Best Trick or Treat Neighborhoods to be very amusing.

You can’t argue with the winners: Presidio Heights, Noe Valley, Richmond, Haight, and Sunset. But I’ll also nominate Cole Valley (have you ever seen Belvedere Street in action on Halloween?!) and Potrero Hill.

So readers, what neighborhoods do you nominate for the best Halloween spirit? Comments, please! And have a fun and safe Halloween, everyone!

What You Get For: $950,000-$1M

We’ll take a look at three very different properties being offered in the $950,000-$1M price range. For those interested in purchasing a home in San Francisco, this sort of exercise is designed to help you sort through the unique property types that exist, as well as get a feel for the neighborhoods in which they lie.Continue Reading

New Listing: 1750 Page Street

If you have some time this weekend, stop in and see me at my new listing from 1:00-3:00 on Saturday & Sunday at 1750 Page Street between Cole and Clayton in the Haight.

This two-bedroom, one-bath Victorian top-floor condo has great period detail and has a 100 Walk Score. There’s one-car tandem parking plus a deeded storage room. You’re around the corner from the Panhandle, and all the shops and restaurants on Haight Street—not to mention a stone’s throw from Golden Gate Park. List price: $749,000.

Update: 31 Walter Rocks the House

Update: 31 Walter Rocks the House

There’s nothing like a Duboce Triangle teardown update to brighten your day.

I stopped in at 31 Walter at the end of September, when it came on the market as a contractor special listed at $599,000. I thought the price was well below lot value for the location.

Offers came and went, and now this probate sale is awaiting court confirmation. The court date is October 27th, and if you’d like to throw your hat into the ring, here’s the deal: First overbid is 5% plus $500 over the $775,000 accepted offer. So if you can swing at least $814,250, head on over to court and try your luck. Somebody’s gonna have a nice single-family home on Walter in the not-too-distant future.

New Listing: 1006-1010 Masonic Avenue

Welcome to my new listing at 1006-1008-1010 Masonic Avenue.

This Edwardian property features three spacious units with two vacant and one tenant occupied (at $2,444/mo). Fabulous period details abound in all units, including original built-in cabinetry, bay windows, and high ceilings. The top unit has seven rooms, and the middle and lower units have six rooms. That breaks down into three bedrooms per unit.

There’s a large basement with ample storage, and the location has a 94 Walk Score—close to Haight/NoPa shops, restaurants, Golden Gate Park and public transportation. List price: $1,295,000.
