Edwardian Boarding House Begs for Buyers

Edwardian Boarding House Begs for Buyers

If taking possession of an Edwardian fixer on a large lot in the Sunset sounds like a good idea for the holidays, then head over to 1471 18th Avenue. The 3BR/2BA, 1630-square foot home is on the market for the first time in 43 years, and it has box-beam ceilings, a large bonus room, and is located on a pleasant, tree-lined street between Kirkham and Judah. You also get nice ocean views from the top floor. List price: $799,000.Continue Reading

Cash for Cardboard in Outer Richmond

Cash for Cardboard in Outer Richmond

“BANK OWNED! Contractor special! Fixer needs a major renovation! Subject property is basically a shell of a house and has been in this state for at least 3 years per lien! CASH SALE, BANK WILL NOT FINANCE AS IS! NO REPAIRS!”

And so goes the listing detail in the MLS. The economy has certainly caught up with the goings on at 834 44th Avenue at Fulton in the Outer Richmond. What you get is a 3700-square foot, bank-owned shell of a single-family home, listed at $588,900. The property is in the midst of a five-year moratorium on construction due to the complicated lien situation. The moratorium will end in two- to three years, according to the listing agent.

How’s the Market In: The Marina

How’s the Market In: The Marina

The Marina buyer is usually looking for proximity to The Bay, Chrissy Field, the Marina Green and all that Chestnut Street has to offer—not to mention the opportunity to spot various Giants team members partying in the neighborhood. Despite the known shaky ground upon which the Marina sits that makes it quite vulnerable in an earthquake, homes continue to sell briskly and for large amounts of money year round.Continue Reading

Just Sold: SoMa Short Sale Loft

Just Sold: SoMa Short Sale Loft

I just closed my second short sale of 2010 today—a 1BR/2BA spacious loft at 380 10th Street #7. We had two lenders to contend with (Wachovia/Wells and Citi), but they were quite agreeable, and we closed precisely on time.  List price was $689,000.Continue Reading

Condos & High-End Homes See Big Discounts

A look at last week’s single-family home and condo sales gives us a glimpse into the mindset of buyers and sellers as we head into the holidays. And it looks like some pretty hefty discounts are possible for buyers these days, particularly in the condo and high-end/$1M+ markets.Continue Reading

Upper Noe’s Dolores Street Adds to Inventory

A glut of inventory has materialized along the stretch of Dolores in the Upper Noe section of Noe Valley (south of Cesar Chavez, to 30th Street). I walk my dogs past all of these properties on a daily basis, so I thought I’d run through what’s out there in the event somebody’s interested in one of these homes.Continue Reading
