February ushered in some noteworthy overbidding in San Francisco, and that means we have quite a few new members for the SF Overbidders Club. Yes, sellers are still agreeing to price their homes lower than the estimated value, and why not? Particularly in neighborhoods like Noe Valley and the Mission, buyers can’t seem to help themselves from throwing money at homes even if the final selling prices are well above comp range. (By “comp range,” I mean the range for which other, similar homes have sold.)
Here are the February members who have paid 25% or more above the list price:
2527 16th Avenue
List Price: $788,000
Sale Price: $1,129,000
Overbid Amount: 43.27%
What else can you tell me? Cash sale, no contingencies. Much deferred maintenance and foundation settlement issues.
