Mission Dolores Units Sell for Way Over Asking

Mission Dolores Units Sell for Way Over Asking

I toured 3883-85 20th Street adjacent to Mission Dolores Park when it came on the market in August. The vacant property was listed at $1.3M was essentially a shell of a property, with plans to remodel and legalize it as a two-unit building. There was a large yard and an additional housekeeping unit in the back. Based on the condition, it was clear that a buyer who needed a loan to complete the purchase would have a bit of a challenge. The rear of the house sat just above the J Muni track. Continue Reading

SF Best City for a Car-Free Lifestyle

What’s the best city to live in if you don’t have a car? San Francisco/Oakland, according to a recent study by 24/7 Wall Street. The current issue of the Zephyr MarketTracker lists the top ten car-free cities.

Also, we have a spotlight on Nopa and some hot properties there, as well as the lineup for San Francisco holiday tree lightings. And of course, all the latest sales and a market overview. (Happy to say that the median sales price over the past 180 days for single-family homes has increased by 3.9%.)

It’s all here in the current issue of MarketTracker!

Wraps Off: Noe’s “Luxe” Condos Closer to Market

Wraps Off: Noe’s “Luxe” Condos Closer to Market

The scaffolding is down and the neighborhood interest is up at The Luxe condo development, which has been in the works for several years. (For a bit of history, click here.) But it looks like the six-unit project will have its official opening in January.

There will be three 2BR/2BA units priced at around $900,000, according to the listing office. Also available will be three significantly larger, two-level townhomes with three bedrooms and a bonus space in most of those units. Pricing on these units will be in the $1.3M-$1.6M range.

What You Can Buy: Below the Median Price in Noe Valley

Noe Valley can be a tough nut to crack for many buyers, especially those looking for single-family homes. There’s a very high demand for the location, due to the proximity to public transportation, freeways, overall street appeal, and the plethora of shops and restaurants. It’s no surprise that the median house price in the neighborhood from June  – November 2011 was $1,385,502. I thought it might be helpful to take a look at a trio of homes currently on the market for less than the median price. Continue Reading

Two Hayes Valley Condos Battle It Out

I stopped in at 342 Hayes between Gough and Franklin yesterday on broker tour, to refresh my memory on the two 2BR/2.5BA condos that are both available in the building. 342 Hayes is a 14-unit property that was constructed in 1996 and finds itself in 2011 to be situated in the epicenter of the neighborhood. Many shops and restaurants have popped up over the years, making this property one of the more popular ones. Continue Reading

Single-Women Buyer Alert: 1730 Broderick #12

Single-Women Buyer Alert: 1730 Broderick #12

It’s no secret that single women are more likely to purchase a home than single men. (Based on all the single women I’ve helped buy properties, I strongly agree with the previous statement.) The studio at 1730 Broderick #12 in Lower Pacific Heights exemplifies that trend: The past two owners have been single women. So when I saw this unit on tour this week, I thought I’d get the word out.
