Fewer Offers Land On SF Properties

It’s unanimous among local Realtors that most San Francisco properties are attracting far fewer offers than they were six months ago.

A quick poll at our recent companywide sales meeting revealed that 83% of agents are seeing fewer offers—though there are some massive exceptions (57 offers, anyone?). Even in situations where there are seemingly multiple buyers interested in a particular property, agents are sometimes receiving only one or two offers. In some cases, no one is stepping forward and listing agents are continuing their marketing campaigns in search of qualified, interested buyers.

What I’m personally seeing, as well, are sellers increasingly being open to considering “preemptive” offers. These are offers that are submitted prior to an official offer date. Continue Reading

Just Sold: Mid-Century Modern in Sherwood Forest

Just Sold: Mid-Century Modern in Sherwood Forest

My clients just closed on a very cool mid-century home in Sherwood Forest. Situated near the West Portal retail area and Mount Davidson’s hiking trails, 163 Casitas has three bedrooms, two and a half baths plus a large family room down.

The house was recently very thoroughly renovated, with all new systems and finishes. The kitchen and master bedroom open right out onto the rear deck and the property has a great indoor-outdoor feel. There are also expansive outlooks from the living and dining rooms.

163 Casitas was listed for $1,595,000 and sold for $1,750,000.

What You Can Buy: 21 Days or More on the Market

What You Can Buy: 21 Days or More on the Market

There’s plenty of single-family home and condo inventory on the San Francisco market right now, and you may be surprised to know that more than half of those properties have been on the market for 21 days or more. That means offer dates have come and gone, and sellers will have some decisions to make as time goes on.

The high end of this 21+ days on market (DOM) portion of the market is well represented: The average price of a house is $2,976,744, and $1,584,750 for a condo. Continue Reading

New Listing: Little Hollywood Gem

New Listing: Little Hollywood Gem

My new listing at 230 Tocoloma is an adorable single-family home located in a neighborhood that’s one of San Francisco’s best-kept secrets—Little Hollywood.

Streets dotted with palm trees and charming, Southern California-style architecture are what you’ll find in Little Hollywood. Along with an excellent commuting location near the Bayshore Caltrain station, T Muni line to downtown and easy access to 101.

You really need to stop in and see what I’m talking about. There are many interesting touches throughout, my favorite being the curved archways separating the rooms and intricate crown moldings.

We’ll be open on Saturday 6/11 and Sunday 6/12 from 2:00-4:00, so make your way down to Little Hollywood and see it live and in person! List price is $769,000.

Off-Market Sales Slow Down in 2016

Off-market sales are accounting for a much smaller percentage of single-family homes and condos this year. Though a quarter of all properties sold in 2015 changed hands without the benefit of being entered into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), those numbers have dropped off significantly in 2016.

Low Turnover, High Value:  Little Hollywood

Low Turnover, High Value: Little Hollywood

There are almost 100 neighborhoods in San Francisco, which can be overwhelming for buyers starting a home search. I like to spotlight what I consider to be the “hidden gems” of San Francisco. And one of those gems is Little Hollywood. I know a bit about the area, because I’m currently preparing a listing for sale there that will hit the market in June. Continue Reading

Buyer Pool for 1BR Condos Smaller, But Strong

One-bedroom condos generally have a smaller buyer pool in San Francisco. Empty nesters, investors, single people or couples are typical buyers, with the latter two groups being first-time buyers looking to get their foot in the homeownership door.

But there’s certainly a strong market for a one bedroom, especially if it’s in a prime location and has all the amenities. I’ve been watching this segment of the market for a while now, as I have a beautiful one-bedroom condo listing at 1818 Broadway #306. And I was not surprised to find that prices are climbing for one bedrooms; in some cases, buyers are getting into extreme overbidding at very high price points. Continue Reading
