What You Can Buy: 2BR Condos

There’s a healthy inventory of condos on the market right now in San Francisco—particularly in popular neighborhoods which are convenient to transportation, restaurants and services. I thought I’d share some of my picks for newly listed condos that I would consider if I were searching for this type of property in the city:

50 Lansing #601
South Beach

2BR/2BA, 1499 sq ft
2-car parking
HOA dues: $763.43/month
List Price: $1,295,000

The Lansing is an 82-unit development right off Harrison and First that’s a great option for South Bay or financial district commuters. #601 has two balconies, a large, 640-square foot private roof terrace and two-car parking. (The latter is a challenge to find in the San Francisco condo market.) The well-appointed kitchen features Studio Becker cabinetry, and the unit has air conditioning, another thing you don’t find often in San Francisco. Common areas include a fitness center with sun deck, pano-view roof deck and on-site property manager. 50 Lansing is perfect for buyers who want to be near the Embarcadero waterfront, Ferry Building and everything that South Beach has to offer (including good weather). This unit sold in 2006 for $1,395,000.

628 Rhode Island
Potrero

2BR/3BA, 1850 sq ft
No parking
HOA dues: $332/month
List Price: $950,000

628 Rhode Island is great for buyers who are looking for a unique property that could use some cosmetic and reconfiguration work to bring out its full potential, in a prime Potrero location. The property consists of a three-unit association, and this particular unit is a freestanding cottage with a separate, rented studio space. The cottage is at the rear of the lot, amidst a very nice garden. It also has city views. 628 Rhode Island is located in the heart of Potrero, and is in proximity to the design district, restaurants, Anchor Steam Brewing Company and the freeway.

2750 Market #101
Corona Heights

2BR/2BA, 1528 sq ft
1-car parking
HOA dues: $623/month
List Price: $825,000

1980s construction may not have the classic San Francisco architectural charm, but it is extremely functional and typically more spacious. Witness 2750 Market #101, which has good natural light throughout, generous square footage and an open living/dining area. There’s a raised hearth fireplace, as well as recessed lighting and a walk-out deck. The remodeled kitchen has lots of storage space and hardwood floors. Yes, this building is right on Market at Douglass, so you traffic will be a presence. But the unit has double-paned windows, and many also have plantation shutters. Common areas include a roof deck with views and outdoor furniture. You’re just up the hill from the Castro and its Muni station, restaurants, services and bars. This unit last sold for $705,000 in 2009.
