Sales Rise for Big Units in Hip ‘Hoods

Sales Rise for Big Units in Hip ‘Hoods

One trend I’m seeing this year is an increase in sales for large condos and TICs in hot neighborhoods like the Haight, Hayes Valley, Mission Dolores, and NoPa. What I think is happening—and which I’ve also heard from some of my colleagues—is that buyers are snapping up these properties due to their need for more space to accommodate existing or growing family needs.Continue Reading

Just Listed: Classic Russian Hill TIC

Just Listed: Classic Russian Hill TIC

My new listing at 1145 Green #5 has been teeming with activity ever since we officially put it on the market at the end of last week. Offered at $439,000, the top-floor 1BR/1BA unit is situated in a prime Russian Hill location. Yes, the unit is a tenancy-in-common (TIC) at the moment. But the six-unit building won the right to condo convert earlier this year (after 17 years in the condo lottery). So condo conversion will most likely take place in the next few months.Continue Reading

What You Can Buy: $1M, 1BR Edition

San Francisco is one of the few cities where one-bedroom condos can actually sell for $1M or more.  In most cases, such properties will be located in the north end of the city. I thought I’d highlight two units currently on the market in this range.

1150 Lombard #16 / Russian Hill
List Price: $899,000

This 1BR/1BA condo at the well-regarded Lombardia in Russian Hill has an updated kitchen, remodeled bath with soaking tub and separate shower, as well as a king-sized bedroom with walk-in closet. There’s also a separate laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer and a covered outdoor terrace. The Lombardia was constructed in 1989 and has 42 units. HOA dues are $1234.77 per month. Amenities include 24-hour lobby attendance and guest parking.

2169 Green #3 / Pacific Heights
List Price: $969,000

The 1BR/1BA in 2169 Green is the top-floor unit, which means you’re kind of in the attic. You do get exceptional Bay views and a modern, open floor plan within this Queen Anne Victorian building. There’s a private balcony off the bedroom and a home office in the turret. Amenities in this three-unit building include in-unit laundry, one-car parking and separate storage. HOA dues are $400/month.

A total of seven 1BR units have sold in 2011 from $800,000+. The most expensive? A condo at 1070 Green, which changed hands for $1,207,500.
