$80,000 @ 88 Townsend…For A Parking Spot In San Francisco

88townsend

Just one single, solitary, lonely parking space…

If you’re a Giants fan, it might be just the thing. If you’re in Kentucky and looking to buy a farm, you might be wondering WTF we’re thinking here in San Francisco.

REALLY Expensive Real Estate…Like $35,000,000

Twenty-nine fifty Broadway sold “off market” last month for $35,000,000.

As reported on SocketSite today:
“Hidden behind non-disclosure agreements and tax records stamped “DO NOT FILM,” you’re not supposed to know about the sale of 2950 Broadway which was purchased for $29,500,000 in 2011, remodeled a little last year, and very quietly sold off the market last month. But now you know. And you’re about to know the record setting sale price as well.

With a sale price of $35,000,000 (roughly $3,182 per square foot) and $875,000 in transfer tax confidentially paid, 2950 Broadway has just displaced 2840 Broadway to become the most expensive single-family home ever sold in San Francisco.”

Wow…and some people will wonder and cry foul that it never hit the MLS.

Hey Buyers! Turns Out There’s More Inventory Than You Thought

Have a look at what hit our email in the past couple months, and the companies heavily marketing “pocket listings”, “off market” property, or “not on MLS” opportunities.

You, the buyer, would probably like to know about these opportunities, wouldn’t you? Well…you can’t. Not until these brokerages wake up and join the year 2013, move beyond “private” or internal email as the method of choice for delivering these opportunities, look to social networks for some guidance as to where the buying (and selling) public lives, and get with the program!

Pacific Union, McGuire, Zephyr, Paragon, TRI Coldwell Banker, Vanguard, Sotheby’s, the list goes on and on…you ALL have pocket listings, and you’re all marketing them “privately”, so let’s make an effort to encourage each other to participate in an alternative marketplace to bring these opportunities to your fellow agents and the public, rather than continuing to shove this growing marketplace under the massive bureaucratic rug that is our National, State, and Local Association of Realtors. And for heaven’s sake, quit throwing your colleagues (Climb Real Estate) under the bus for taking a step in the right direction! (You know who you are.) It’s high time an alternative to the MLS takes shape, and the opportunity is right here and now.

[Editor's Note: Some of these properties were placed on PocketListings.net, and others have since hit MLS and are now sold, but they did land in our email a very short time ago. You can expect some of these links to be killed by day's end, due to panicking brokerages.
Finally, if you'd like to be alerted when these opportunities hit our inbox, drop us a line, and we'll figure out a way to get them to you.]

From Vacant Lot To Contemporary Home In Eight Short Months: 2192 Funston Ave

What was…

2192Funston

Is now…

2192 Funston Ave, San Francisco CA

But not yet…

Look for this to hit MLS any day, unless someone goes and knocks the seller’s socks off with a big time offer between now and this weekend. Sold in May of 2012 for $489,000 as a “Great opportunity for a developer to build a stunning 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath single family home in highly coveted Golden Gate Heights, [with] shovel-ready approved plans for a single family home in excess of 3,000 sqft, elevator, sauna, 2 car garage, deck, and much more!”

It’s now touted as “a newly constructed contemporary home with panoramic views on a quiet Golden Gate Heights cul-de-sac. [And this] chic and modern beauty is wonderfully laid out on five levels. The stairs are beautiful, especially with the glass paneled railings that create an open and airy sense of space. Too tired to walk up stairs? No worries — that’s what the elevator is for!”

From the looks of the pictures provided by Open Homes Photography, and the minimalist approach to maximizing the views, we’re very curios to see how this $1,680,000 four bedroom, three and one half bath home does in this oh so hot market of ours…especially since it may be one of the few (or only) vacant lots turned single family home west of Twin Peaks with an elevator…and did we mention the views?!

Make sure to check the interactive floor plans, and get yourself out there this weekend to have a look. It’s not something you see everyday in that neck of the woods, and so far, you’re one of the first to know it even exists.
