Sold | Off Market In Cole Valley – 1242 Cole

giants_world_series Giants win the World Series, yet again, it’s Halloween, and my clients just stole this amazing condominium in the heart center of Cole Valley! The essence of what we just witnessed in the World Series is not much different from the Real Estate game in San Francisco. It takes a great team, strategy, timing, focus, and of course a little luck to win. I’m happy to say all the elements came together for my buyers and we knocked this purchase out of the park on the first pitch. My clients knew it was a great opportunity, took my advice, didn’t hesitate, and scored! Congratulations Elizabeth and Andrew. Ya done good.

Not only is October great for baseball, Halloween, and our Indian Summers, but this October has been my most memorable month of this year. With 6 deals closing this month, this one in Cole Valley was the icing on the cake. I have another deal in contract in Cole Valley, and know of a couple great listings off market and coming soon, so don’t be a stranger if you’re looking in Cole Valley for a home.

This score proves that there are opportunities out there without overpaying, but you have to be aggressive and know where to look.

An average condominium in Cole Valley sells for $941 per square foot, according to my third quarter report, and we grabbed this sweet 3-bedroom, 1 bath home with parking, yard, amazing period details, an awesome kitchen, some rugs, and some great furniture at $886 per square foot before it hit the market at $1,300,000.

For you buyers out there, it’s a crazy market, but don’t get discouraged. You can win.

“You Understand the Modern Buyer, Who Can Do Their Own Research and Come Prepared”

A great testimonial from two very happy selling clients.

Hi Alex,

Thanks again for the great work on the sale of our Outer Sunset Condo.

We really never expected to get even close to the price you were able to achieve for us.

When we decided to move in Nov 2012, the Outer Sunset was trailing the rest of the city and we were told by an SF realtor friend to expect under $600K for our place.

So to come in at over $800K two years later feels phenomenal.

We don’t think it was luck at all. Having read your newsletter for many years — I got hooked when you used to do profiles of the micro-neighborhoods of San Francisco, which were great — I knew that you loved San Francisco and know San Francisco buyers. I felt that you understand the modern buyer who can do their own research and come prepared, yet has limited time and is used to working through texts, emails and on-line. So when we were coming up on 2 years after moving, we knew it was time to sell and I knew that I wanted to give you a try.

From our first contact the experience has not disappointed. You have been prompt and responsive and treated us and our condo as a top priority throughout. We started the process in May and from the beginning we established a timeline and expectations. May was the perfect time to start for a sale in mid-September with a close in mid-Oct.

You went to work on our place immediately, engaging Gigi Park and getting us estimates and a timeline for the required work prior to sale. You walked us through the entire process and based on your advice we negotiated an early move-out for our tenant. We knew that there was deferred maintenance going into the project, and spent the money to bring the place into top form. Over the summer you would check in periodically to make sure everything was on track, and as the work progressed our timeline unfolded exactly as expected.

Due to the early move out we were able to market the property in mid-September which was an optimal time. With the work completed, Katrina’s staging really showed off the beauty of the location and the rooms. The brochure was beautiful and it was thrilling to see our place featured in your newsletter. Tom kept track of the Zillow hits — over 2000 views and over 25 favorites!

Offer day we were happy with the offers and then ecstatic. Adding to our comfort level was knowing that the offer we chose was from a couple who worked with an agent and mortgage broker with whom you have close ties. It helped us believe that the deal would really go through and that we were dealing with high integrity buyers who would love our home as we had.

The close went smoothly and we knew if we had questions you were just a text or a call or an email away throughout.

Thanks again!

–KT and Tom

(See Tom’s comments below)

To add to what Katy says, I’d like to note that since we used Alex for his knowledge and skill regarding our sale, we followed all of his advice. We staged, painted, repaired and replaced fixtures as he advised and didn’t try to quibble with, or shortcut his guidance.

Congratulations again guys! Thanks for the great testimonial. So glad it worked out on such an extraordinary level. Keep in touch and let’s get you moved back to the City! Go Giants!
