How’s The Market In: The Mission

Always a popular neighborhood with urban dwellers who want proximity to good public transportation and hot restaurants, the Mission is continuing to attract new homeowners. The area is a mix of multi-unit buildings and single-family homes, with some lofts and newer construction thrown in.

New Listing: 2BR Hayes Valley Condo

My new listing at 228 Scott Street hit the market this week. The 2BR/2BA condo is located on the border of the Lower Haight, Duboce, NoPa and Hayes Valley.
