To the untrained eye, 1671 Bush St. is nothing more than a “spacious, elegant Victorian flat priced well below market comparables”, but to the wizards behind theFrontSteps
…it is an approved short sale, so time is of the essence, and we would like to sell as soon as possible. We are offering 4% commission to the buyer’s agent.
Okay, so we got spammed and the email gave us the short sale clues, but now you have them too. And since you’re reading, we’ll give you back 1.5% of that commission should you need assistance with that purchase.
As for help with the wallpaper. Sorry, our hands are tied.
Update: And a reader comes in with more details:
It opened at 1.13 then dropped to 995k.
It’s also been on craigslist some times for 899k and must sell.
All told, it’s been on the market for well over 12 months at roughly the same price.
For most of the time it has been in foreclosure, which makes me think that the owners haven’t paid their mortgage for about the 12 months that it’s been on the market.
Last sold was approx 400k in 1997. I’m guessing the owners did a massive refinance to the highest price they could appraise it at. (1.13) then stopped paying the mortgage. I hope the owners are taking a nice holiday with the money the borrowed from the bank before they stopped paying the mortgage.
Especially since it is “AS IS” and it has had no takers at roughly the same price for the last 12 months, look out below!

Lest you think we focus exclusively on the high end of the spectrum, we thought you’d like to know about the low end (in price, not quality…size doesn’t matter either, right?)
An itsy bitsy studio at the Symphony Towers recently closed escrow for a reported price of $349,000 (asking $399,000).
