Think Outside the Neighborhood Box for Under $1.5M

We’re still in a super sellers’ market in San Francisco when it comes to single-family houses. And the average citywide house price, year-to-date, is just above $2M. So it takes some serious strategizing, compromising and an open mind when it comes to finding a house for under $1.5M.

What’s the key? Go beyond buyer-saturated neighborhoods like Bernal Heights, Glen Park or West Portal and hit up the less obvious areas. But make no mistake: Homes in these neighborhoods are fetching multiple offers and over-asking prices. Continue Reading

Think Outside the Neighborhood Box for Under $1M

The single-family home market in San Francisco is a very competitive one, and the average price for a house is above $1M at this point in time. So it takes some serious strategizing, compromising and an open mind when it comes to finding a house for under a million dollars.

A quick look at the market reveals that there are 147 two-unit properties available right now. They range in price from $394,000 for a fully tenant-occupied, bank-owned building in Bayview; $1.1M for a Noe Valley duplex with a tenant in the lower unit; and $4,250,000 for a vacant property featuring 4BR/3.5BA up and 2BR/2BA down in the Buena Vista Park area.
