Over/Under List Price — April Percentages For Your Appraisals

I wanted to share these stats for any and all of you buyers, mortgage brokers, or agents that run into appraisers who feel it is their duty to question the price a buyer is willing to pay for a property in this market. In my humble opinion, appraisers should not ever look at percentages above or below asking price. Actually, I think San Francisco doesn’t need appraisers in a transaction at all, ever. If a buyer is willing to pay $$ for a property and a seller is willing to sell it for that, that’s what the property is worth.

Anyhow, this chart shows the staggering number of overbids in San Francisco for April, and the lengths buyers are willing to go to win.

San Francisco Real Estate Market Update & Recent Sales Snapshot

Wowza, wowza, wowza! Those of you that have been reading a long time know that if I go quiet, I’m probably busy. That’s exactly the case. I currently have 4 properties in contract, and two listed as active on MLS (both of which I expect will go into contract soon). Once the dust settles, I’ll have many stories to share, and much more wisdom to impart on all of you. Until then, enjoy the most recent market snapshot I sent on Friday.

And of course, San Francisco’s most recent sales (because that’s all we really care about, right?)

Live in San Francisco’s NOPA District In This Fabulous Top Floor View Condo

Have aspirations to live in the oh so hip NOPA district of San Francisco? Been searching for a single family home in NOPA, but just can’t afford one? You’re in luck, as thankfully San Francisco always has an alternative for you, and 22 Loyola Terrace is no exception.

Photos and details are here now.

Technically mapped in San Francisco’s Lone Mountain neighborhood, 22 Loyola Terrace is one cute cul-de sac a stone’s throw from the heart center of NOPA, close to Haight, down the hill from USF, around the hill from Laurel Village, and a short par 3 away from Golden Gate Park. It’s most definitely stumbling distance to Bistro Gambrinus, 1/2 block from Papalote, and certainly walking distance to Matching Half Cafe (because Starbucks on the corner of Fulton and Masonic should be avoided). It gets better…there is a new place to try on the corner of Geary and Masonic called The Corner Store (Remember the Hukilau? Right there.) They serve brunch, lunch, dinner, and have a soda fountain (such the rage).

This top floor, two level, three plus bedroom condominium could easily trick you into thinking it’s a single family home, but alas…it is not. Homeowner’s dues are an incredibly low $193/month, the wood floors sparkle, the kitchen and baths have been updated, the decks and views are tremendous, the garage is massive (2 cars easily fit), there is additional storage, washer & dryer in the unit, and the creme de la creme…radiant heat, no hot air blowing in your skin to dry you out!

So if you, or anybody you know, has been looking for a single family home, or condominium anywhere near NOPA, Lone Mountain, Haight, Laurel Village, Cole Valley, or even Hayes Valley, this is one property you won’t want to miss. Spread the word far and wide, 22 Loyola Terrace is officially on the market, and ready for a new owner. Me thinks it should be you!

Open Houses will be held every Sunday from 2-4pm until it sells.
