The Bay Area’s Biggest Earthquakes – On One Map

I get a lot, I mean thousands upon thousands, of readers visiting theFrontSteps on any given day wondering which neighborhoods in San Francisco are situated on bedrock, and which are prone to liquefaction or earthquake induced landslides. It’s interesting to view the traffic stats for these posts and see the incredible spike in traffic (like 10X) after the Bay Area experiences an earthquake. Clearly, we’re a culture of not worrying about something until it happens.

So – where’s the next quake gonna hit? Nobody knows, but The San Francisco Business Times recently published a Map of The Bay Area’s Biggest Earthquakes (and the damage they caused), which I found incredibly interesting, so I thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy…

NOPA Flat For Sale: You Get First Dibs

Labor Day is just around the corner, and that means we can expect an influx of listings to hit the market. Just like everyone else, we’ve been waiting and preparing a couple properties ourselves. We’ll be putting this beauty on the market 9/5, but as is always the case, my readers get first crack.

Situated in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in San Francisco, this NOPA flat is not to be missed. You can walk to everything, transportation is a breeze, and with approximately 1500 +/- square feet of living space, what more could you need. Located at 1674 Hayes, this unit features 3 bedrooms, 2 1/4 bath (2nd bedroom has a sink), 1 parking space for a small car, soaring ceilings, hardwood floors, laundry room, fireplace, and a shared yard. The bedrooms are very generous in size and have tons of closet space for all those shoes and suits. The long hallway leads you to the rear of the property where the incredibly light and bright great room allows for dining, entertaining, cooking, and lounging all in the same space.

We will be listing this property 9/5, first open house 9/7 from 2-4pm, and available for private showings anytime. Price will be $1,095,000, and the offer date (if any) is still TBD. Disclosures are in the final stages of completion, and property is in the final stretch of condo conversion. If you’d like any more details, or care to get yourself or a friend in, give me a shout: 415-254-5351.

If you live in the area, and were wondering what your home might be worth, or what we expect to sell this flat for, I’d be happy to chat.

We Just Beat The Closest Comp By $200,000

I’m pleased to announce my clients have successfully sold their Richmond District top floor condominium for $1,200,000 (listed at $949,000), or as I like to point out, $200,000 more than the most recent, closest competitor property on 26th Ave that listed almost the same day as we did.

It’s no coincidence we knocked it out of the park. It was strategy, patience, perseverance, and knowing how to finesse each offer (we received five) to their highest and best without them walking away. Congratulations to my clients that just set the bar for Central Richmond condos – the last area of the city you can still find a deal. Let the migration begin.
