What SF Home-Buyers Bought in 2014

Penthouses, Probates, Lofts, Mansions & Fixer-Uppers

How many San Francisco home sales were Victorians, Edwardians or Art Deco? Condos in doorman buildings? Artist live-work lofts? Probate or distressed sales? Without parking? Under $500,000? Over $5 million? Tenant occupied? Had Golden Gate or Bay Bridge views? What were the oldest house sale, the biggest condo sale and the median sales price for a 2-unit building?

Below are answers to those and a hundred other questions about home prices, neighborhoods, architecture, amenities, views, types and sizes. San Francisco has one of the most interesting real estate markets in the world and we hope you enjoy some of the details. A neighborhood map is included at the bottom for your convenience.

Cole Valley Property Gets 30 Offers

135parnassus
Because one offer isn’t enough, 135 Parnassus (a teeny – tiny 1192 sqft, 2 bed, 1 bath condo) in the heart center of Cole Valley, just blew the roof off of reality. Sure, priced crazy low at $799,000 (actually, I would have priced it similarly because it did have some issues), but still…30 offers? Come on!

I do know roughly where this will sell, but have been asked not to share pricing info, so check back, contact me, or better yet – get on my list to receive real time sold property reports to your inbox every other Friday. (Sign up at sfnewsletter.com and get “The Goods”.)

The agent kindly informed me, “We also have a solid backup offer”, and my response, “You actually have 29.” Ahhh…to be a seller in San Francisco.

And didn’t I just report the market might be cooling…sort of?

Wowza.
