Fixer Facing Foreclosure: an Update (455 Vernon)

Price then for this lovely home in Merced Heights, $695,000. We were told recently they just had a “$125,000 price reduction to $600,000″, (We’re assuming that math is from an “original price”.) So there you have it, 455 Vernon is now $600,000.

We still have dibs on that truck.

Fixer Facing Foreclosure: Move Fast!

It’s nice to see the tips coming in, especially the ones we know you’ll love.

This beauty at 455 Vernon in Merced Heights is definitely a fixer (we Realtors call this “deferred maintenance”), apparently facing foreclosure, and needs to be sold quickly. Go on, tell us you’re buying it. List price: $695,000.

Holloway and Bixbee: new construction find

There’s just something about seeing naked wood in San Francisco that gets us all giddy.

Maybe it’s the prospect of something entirely new being built in the neighborhoods where we live. Or maybe it’s the fact that when we see something like this, it is clear somebody had the persistence and patience to push their dream (or development) through the city’s red tape. Either way, this home on the corner of Holloway and Bixbee in Merced Heights gives us that funny, good feeling, and it looks to be coming along quite nicely. (Guess that’s why we blog about real estate.) They even spared the white picket fence and arched trellis entrance.

What is perhaps more interesting about this single family construction…it appears to have been torn down to the ground. Not too easy to do in this city. Remind us to update you on this one when it is complete…or maybe you can update us?
