Super Bowl City

10 Reasons to Visit Super Bowl City

[Editor’s Note: As part of my commitment to San Francisco and the greater good of all residents in this wonderful city, I have teamed up with some USF Journalism students to allow them to get their feet wet with writing/blogging/marketing on a larger scale. This is the first post of hopefully many, and I thank Kianna Fernandez (USF Student/ tFS Intern) for her time, her efforts, and her excellent first effort with this piece on theFrontSteps.]

Maximum Overbid Of The Week | Outer Parkside

It had to be the lion blanket, because apparently the original $1,099,000 list price wasn’t enough to entice the frenzy. So what happened? Price reduced to $995,000, and look at that…sold for $1,225,000. In case you missed that, that’s higher than the previous list price two short months prior, at which this home was unable to find a buyer. Some things in life simply make no sense.

Anyhow, here are the Top 10 Overbids for the past week in San Francisco

Maximum Overbid of the Week | Bernal Heights Fixer Wins Again

It’s Friday! Yeah! (If you’re not a Realtor who works every weekend.) That means overbids, and look at that, another fixer takes the cake. This time it’s 554 Anderson in Bernal Heights, a 2 bed, 1 bath home listed for $549,000 and sold for $920,000. As for the rest of the top 10, I think this is the first time we’ve seen the list not contain one single property over $2,000,000.

Before & After On A Noe Valley/Glen Park Victorian

There is always a lot of talk around town about how “easy” it is to sell a property in San Francisco, and that all we (Realtors) have to do is sign up a listing, put a sign out front, and the hordes of buyers will come marching through the door, offer oodles over asking, beg to buy the property, offer up their children as security deposit, and seller sells it for a mint.

Not so, and to prove you need us (particularly theFrontSteps) to market your property for sale in San Francisco, I’d like to share some “before & after” shots of recent property transformations.
