2191 32nd Ave, San Francisco CA Hits MLS

[Update: Sold! Sales Price $871,500. Six offers.]

It doesn’t get better than this in the Parkside. Twenty one ninety one (2191) 32nd Ave hits MLS tomorrow, and you are all getting the first look. That is unless you’ve been following me on Instagram (@theFrontSteps).

Asking price for this most excellent home in the Avenues of San Francisco will be $785,000, and we’ll be open this Sunday from 2-4pm. Come take a look, and send your friends and family. It goes in MLS tomorrow, but we aren’t opposed to loyal readers getting a jump on the rest of the buying population.

Property Details:

Fabulous Parkside Center Patio Rousseau and Tudor Style home. Meticulously maintained to preserve original details, this home’s main level boasts beautiful hardwood floors, formal entry, formal dining room, and formal living room w/ arched doorways, high exposed beam ceilings, wood burning fireplace, original tile bathroom, updated kitchen, skylights, center patio, balcony, and ocean views. Downstairs is a large 2 car garage w/ additional storage, laundry, and bonus room (media room / master suite) w/ fireplace, hardwood floors, bathroom, and access to quaint backyard. Parkside / Sunset buyers, you will not want to miss this one. It is like nothing you would have recently seen available on our market. No joke.

Calling All San Francisco Surfers (And Wannabes), We Have The Pad For You!

In our never ending quest to find the ultimate San Francisco surf pad, we were delighted to see one of our favorite oceanfront homes hit the market recently, 2534 Great Highway.

It’s not everyday you can buy one of the few homes on the Great Highway that easily clear the sand dunes to enjoy unobstructed (save for a little fog 4 months out of the year) views of easily the best surf spot in all of Northern California, Ocean Beach (we may be fibbing a bit on that comment, but go with the fantasy). If we weren’t Realtors working in a recession fueled by real estate, we’d snatch this 3 bed, 2.5 bath, $1,299,000 baby up in a second.

But we are Realtors, and the market has a long ways to go for a complete rebound, so we’ll just come crash your parties, and install a nice little surf cam on your roof. We promise nobody will know the location and you too can live the dream of being a San Francisco surfer (or wannabe). You’d even be (close) neighbors with the owners/founders of the Beach Chalet/Park Chalet, so maybe you’d get a free pint or two post surf to wash away the salt water…

Guess it’s time to get back on the blogging wagon and go fishin, cuz $1,299,000 ain’t happenin for us any time soon! Have we mentioned our fresh lime margaritas?

An apples to apples in Sunnyside? It looks that way.

519 Foerster sold for over asking and 75K more than it last sold for in 2005.

(Here’s the link, 519 Foerster not [editor is back in town] cleaned up):

It looks like there was a paint job, and maybe a new floor in the kitchen, maybe not. The 2005 listing advertises a “new home.”

This would seem to go along with the theory I and a number of others subscribe to. The “pockets” theory that there are neighborhoods throughout the city that continue to see appreciation. One of the most surprising and most glaring is the Inner Richmond more parkside properties. But I think Sunnyside/Miraloma Park is another. This one fetched 616 a foot.

…and the kitchen:

We must first say that this home is technically located in the Parkside, near Stern Grove and that area is quite nice. Having not actually been in the home, we can’t speak to the price, but if the pictures are any indication….oh wait, those are the before shots from the last sale in December 2007 at $900,000.

Read on for the after…. Continue reading Reader Reports: Parkside home for $1.4M? (2560 22nd Ave)

Crime on the rise in Bernal Heights?

It seems to be the week of getting edumucated on theFrontSteps. First chickens, now rising crime in Bernal Heights? We have no factual evidence to support what we’re saying, but the information has come to us from a very reliable and trustworthy source. We’re hoping you (the reader) can shed some light on the matter. We know some of you in particular might have better knowledge on the matter than we, so please share.

It also begs the question, could this make Bernal go bust? (And it reminds us, we’re about due for another Battle Royale.)
