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

West Portal Inventory Wakes Up

West Portal is one of the best neighborhoods in the city because of its retail district and Muni access. But it’s a geographically small area and doesn’t get much housing turnover. (Only 21 homes sold in the neighborhood in 2009 at an average of $1,102,990, which is about what you should expect to pay for a home in a location that offers the aforementioned amenities.) However, two homes just came on the market this week that are well worth considering if West Portal is on your list of preferred neighborhoods: Continue Reading

A Visit to Arden Estates

A Visit to Arden Estates

I checked out two of the model homes on my broker tour at the new Arden Estates development, located on 15th Avenue in West Portal.

This is a collection of seven single-family homes, five of which are still in the process of being finished. The homes feature three bedrooms; a fourth bedroom/family room; three bathrooms and one powder room. They all have about 3,000 square feet spread across three levels. Continue Reading

145 Madrone Gets $50,000 Over

145 Madrone Gets $50,000 Over

Brought on the market at the end of October, 145 Madrone–a total fixer and in need of a gut–featured 1,728 square feet inside across three levels. The home was best suited to a contractor, but at $849,000, it was difficult to predict where the selling price would be. I was a bit nervous even walking through the house, as there were a few places in which the floor didn’t appear to be wildly stable. Continue Reading

Arden Estates Rises

I was driving through West Portal recently, and spotted progress on what will be known as Arden Estates.

This controversial development will result in seven standalone single-family homes, with 3BR+/3BAs, high-end finishes, and two-car garages. It’s not often you see a development being built that consists of multiple houses; after all, this isn’t Vallejo or Orange County.

Rumored to have list prices in the $2M range, I am also wondering if the more sophisticated city buyers will acquiesce to the sort of cookie-cutter ambiance Arden Estates will likely provide. The $2M price point has a lot to offer in many very popular neighborhoods across San Francisco.
