Mission a Magnet for Tech Workers—and Rising Home Values

The Wall Street Journal ran a great article yesterday on the Mission’s popularity among San Francisco tech workers.

Facebook employees apparently congregate in Mission Dolores Park and in all the nearby bars, and shuttle 75 workers from the Mission to Palo Alto headquarters daily. And startups like Small Batch, Posterous and CrowdFlower have set up shop in the neighborhood. Reporters Cari Tuna and Stu Woo also mention the rising prices in the Mission, saying that while median home values in the district and citywide fell about 20% in the latest recession, values in the area have actually risen 4% since April 2009. No small feat.

Are we approaching another tech boom? This is starting to feel like deja vu.

Just Sold: 555 Bartlett #412

Just Sold: 555 Bartlett #412

My clients and I have the distinction of being the first to close on a condo at 555 Bartlett, the excellent new development project in the Mission. The photo above is the courtyard, which will let all the residents enjoy the great weather in the neighborhood.

There are approximately 40 units in contract (with ten going into contract last week, largely due to the tax credit incentive)—so there are 24 condos left. Units come with parking and list prices currently range from the $400,000s to the low $700,000s.

A Look Inside the Mission’s Newest Development: 555 Bartlett

I attended a friends and neighbors party at the Mission’s new 555 Bartlett last night. The building isn’t quite complete, but it’s pretty obvious that it will cater to what San Francisco buyers need—reasonably priced units with parking in a central, increasingly hip location.

The 58-unit development is located at the corner of Mission and Cesar Chavez and features a mix of predominantly one- and two-bedroom condos.Continue Reading

Mission’s Union Gets FHA Approval

One of the latest condo developments to get FHA loan approval is Union, the 76-unit complex at Bryant between 19th & 20th in the Mission. The project has been on the market since last year, and is more than 50% sold, according to the sales team, and it’s now possible to buy a condo in Union with as little as 3.5% down.Continue Reading

Capp Compound Seeks Crafty Buyer

For those yearning for an Arts and Crafts-style compound in the heart of the Mission, 428 Capp will certainly do the trick.

This two-story home with a rear carriage house sits on a 6,125 square foot lot right at Capp and 19th Street. It was last sold for $1,085,000 in October 2006, but is now listed at $1,295,000.Continue Reading
