Lots of Love for Bernal + Latest SF Sales

Is Bernal’s north slope the best neighborhood in the United States? According to Redfin, that’s apparently the case, and you can find out why in this edition of the Zephyr MarketTracker. We also take a look at some of Bernal’s current listings.

And San Francisco is the best place to…have a baby? Yes, as per the folks at What To Expect. No explanation from that group as to why most families seem to move out of San Francisco for the ‘burbs, but I’ll go with it.

Find out what citywide properties sold over the past 21 days, and get the most current sales stats.

It’s all here in the Zephyr MarketTracker!

21 Days & Counting: Hot SF ‘Hoods

San Francisco inventory is typically snapped up within a week in popular neighborhoods. But it may come as a surprise to find that there are many properties that have been on the market for three or more weeks—and are still available.

For buyers who are tired of competing in multiple-offer situations, it’s time to revisit the listings that are taking offers as they come. Today we take a look at three homes in the hot neighborhoods of Bernal, West Portal and Cow Hollow that have been on the market for 21 days or longer:Continue Reading

How’s the Market In: Bernal Heights

I have many clients who live in Bernal, and am often asked how the market is doing in the neighborhood. The Bernal real estate market is usually pretty healthy; buyers like the favorable weather, as well as the close proximity to the Cortland retail strip and freeways. First-time home buyers typically target Bernal because the homes are generally smaller and thus more affordable in comparison to other nearby areas like Noe Valley.Continue Reading

What the Median Price Will Buy You in San Francisco: House Edition

I’ve been enjoying the “median price” series of On the Block blog posts, so I thought I’d create a San Francisco version.

The median price for the 273 single-family homes sold since April 1st is $775,000. And there are 281 houses currently listed for up to that price. Here are three of them, ripe for the picking:

The first is a 2BR/1BA with an unwarranted studio in-law at 2122 47th Avenue. I sold a house in this Outer Parkside neighborhood last year that was two blocks from this property, and I can vouch for the excellent beach and park proximity. The home appears to be in nice condition, and is listed at what I believe is a very reasonable $628,000 price. It’s been on the market for about two weeks.

We move on to 1351 Plymouth,a 2BR/1BA 1920s home in Westwood Park listed at $685,000. There’s a sunroom, living room with fireplace, and a bonus room/bath down. You’re very close to Ocean Avenue and BART/Muni stations, and the house has an 88 Walk Score. There have been two price reductions since the property came on the market at $728,000 in mid March.

I blogged about 271 Nevada when it first came on the market back in February:

The one-bedroom cottage is very appealing, but it’s less than 1,000 square feet, which may explain why there is a limited buyer pool. The sellers came on at $749,000 and haven’t moved to reduce the price. But this is probably because they paid $790,000 in 2007 and may not be able to afford to sell for less than their list price. There’s a lot of that going on these days.
