Kicking Bike Safety Up a Notch in SF

It’s no secret that biking around San Francisco is fun—but isn’t always easy. In this month’s MarketTracker, we take a look at what’s in the works for improving bike safety in the city.

Plus, news on the mid-Market corridor, as well as what the heck is going on in the Mission with a certain restaurant owner’s properties. And the most recent sales across the city, too!

Read it all here in the February MarketTracker.

“Flipping” Makes a Comeback in San Francisco

“Flipping” Makes a Comeback in San Francisco

It used to be that most buyers weren’t interested in paying for someone else’s remodel. That obviously isn’t the case in 2011, because it looks like “flipping”–purchasing a fixer, renovating it and reselling at a profit–is alive and well again in the San Francisco market. 3719 Folsom Street in Bernal Heights.

How’s The Market In: Hayes Valley

For urban dwellers who want to be right in the middle of everything, Hayes Valley has an awful lot to offer.

Here’s how things went down: Continue Reading

Richmond Buyers Bag Holiday Deal

The sale during Christmas week at 747 14th Avenue in the Richmond proves that it’s sometimes worth persisting in your house hunt through the holidays. Originally listed in June 2010 for $1,625,000, the 4BR/3.5BA home overlooking the Park Presidio greenery found no immediate buyers. Continue Reading

Noe Valley Teardown is Back Up

Noe Valley Teardown is Back Up

It was 2005 when the small single-family home above at 1409 Sanchez in Upper Noe sold for $868,000 as a major fixer/teardown. Three years later, it was sold through a short sale for $870,000, and then came back on the market in 2009 for $970,000—and ultimately, for $895,000—as a “ready to break ground building project” for two units. The listing was withdrawn, but the development moved ahead. Continue Reading

Roller Coaster Real Estate in 2010

The San Francisco housing market had its major ups and downs in 2010.  The good news is that interest rates remained low and sales volumes increased over 2009. In many cases, buyers were pleased with the values they were getting, and sellers were happy to complete a sale and move on. Continue Reading
