Just Sold: 121 Chilton in Glen Park

Just Sold: 121 Chilton in Glen Park

My clients just purchased a Glen Park charmer on a cul-de-sac at 121 Chilton.

The 1940s home has two bedrooms, one bath and a bonus room down that’s great for a large third bedroom with a garden view. The very gracious living/dining area with wood-burning fireplace gets great natural light through an expansive front window. Big garage and yard, too. Continue Reading

652 Shotwell Open All Weekend

652 Shotwell Open All Weekend

My listing on tree-lined Shotwell Street has been very popular with buyers looking for a home in a hip Mission location. The most popular aspects of the property among agents and buyers who have come through this past week are the walk-out garden, second bathroom, floor plan with “good flow,” and the high ceilings and good natural light.

We’ll be open this weekend on Saturday and Sunday from 2-4, so stop in and check us out! Our Web site is here and list price is $995,000.

Just Listed: Mission Victorian on Shotwell

Just Listed: Mission Victorian on Shotwell

We’ve been prepping my clients’ lovely Victorian condo at 652 Shotwell (between 20th and 21st Street) for its Fall debut, and you’re hearing about it here first!

652 Shotwell is the first floor in a two-unit building and has two spacious bedrooms, two well-appointed bathrooms, and remodeled kitchen with direct access to the deeded deck and shared garden. You’ll be impressed with the incredibly well-preserved period detail of this 1885-built home, too. From eleven-foot ceilings to ornate decorative moldings and ceiling medallions, this property is perfect for buyers looking for classic San Francisco style with contemporary touches.

Rounding out this awesome home are a dining/family room, in-unit laundry and an excellent neighborhood location near newly opened Tartine, Limon Rotisserie, Shotwell’s Bar, Gus’s Community Market, and Flour + Water. The 24th & Mission BART station is a ten-minute walk away, and there’s easy freeway access to 101 or 280.

List price is $995,000.

Stop in this weekend on Saturday 9/10 or Sunday 9/11 from 2:00-4:00 to see 652 Shotwell! And visit our Web site for more photos and details.

Just Sold: Smashing Buena Vista Condo

Just Sold: Smashing Buena Vista Condo

My clients took advantage of the less competitive summer real estate market and landed themselves an absolutely gorgeous two-level, top-floor condo overlooking Buena Vista Park.

Three bedrooms, two baths, two exclusive decks—one with a barbecue and sink—and independent parking head up the feature list, along with views of the park, Marin Headlands, Golden Gate Bridge, and USF.

585 Buena Vista Avenue West closed in mid August for $2,010,000. Cheers to Karen McDowell and Vanessa Klein at Bank of the West for hitting all our deadlines and getting the loan done, as well as to Charles Richards for a smooth title and escrow process.

Summer Break for This Blogger/Realtor

I’m recharging for the busy Fall real estate season, but I’ll be back after Labor Day—with a new Mission condo listing, to boot.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me at ebermingham@zephyrsf.com | 415.823.4656 if you’d like to consult with me about your plans for selling or buying a home.

See you soon!

Big SoMa Loft Open Sunday

Big SoMa Loft Open Sunday

My beautiful, spacious SoMa loft at 701 Minna #17 is freshly on the market, and we’ll be open this Sunday 7/9 from 2:00-4:00.

This unit is a cut above the typical loft, as it combines a family room and master bedroom on an entirely separate level. Rarely can you find a true two-bedroom condo when it comes to lofts, as the design is usually completely open with no separation between rooms. That’s not the case at 701 Minna #17.

Other perks include in-unit laundry, second bedroom and bath upstairs, view roof deck, parking and additional storage.

List price is $1,195,000, which breaks down to less than $700/square foot in a city where $1,000+/square foot has become the norm.

Stop in on Sunday! For more details, visit our property Web site here.

Just Sold: 1818 Broadway #306

Just Sold: 1818 Broadway #306

My Pacific Heights condo listing at 1818 Broadway #306 has officially closed. Listed for $949,000, the sale price was $1,050,000.

We had lots of interest in this unit due to the view and overall presentation. The buyer was able to get a 30-year fixed loan through First Republic, despite the high rental ratio in the building.

If you’re thinking about putting your own condo on the market in the next few months, please contact me at ebermingham@zephyrsf.com / 415.823.4656. I’d be happy to strategize with you on what it will take to fetch top dollar, as well as give you a realistic value range and recommended list price.

New Listing: Big SoMa Loft

My new tri-level loft listing clocks in at 1778 square feet and has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. If you’re a natural light lover, you’ll truly appreciate the floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights. Your entire main level is the entertainment space, with a classic loft bedroom/full bath upstairs. The fully enclosed, first-floor master has a separate media/family room, full bath and lots of closet space. There’s also in-unit laundry. 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
